Table 2 P. falciparum genes expressed in vivo encoded by chromosome 2. In vivo transcripts from the Nigerian sample were defined as present as compared to uninfected blood control hybridization. Asterisk (*) denotes transcripts that were also detected in a Senegal derived blood sample. Genes in bold are uniquely expressed in vivo and were not found to be expressed in the previously reported 3D7 ring stage transcriptome. Gene locus is from PlasmoDB 4.1

From: In vivo transcriptional profiling of Plasmodium falciparum
