Telomeric Heterochromatin in Plasmodium falciparum

Figure 3

Hypothetical model for heterochromatin assembly at P. falciparum chromosome ends. This is a general view of the known chromatin components at P. falciparum subtelomeres. The spreading of heterochromatin along the different TAREs into adjacent coding regions probably involves PfHP1, PfSir2 and PfKMT1 in cooperation. The role of PfOrc1 in this process remains unknown.
