Discovering gametocyte signatures from early P. vivax in vivo RNAseq. a Five patients showed expression of PvAP2-G, a master regulator of Plasmodium gametocyte production. The numbers on the plot represent de-identified patient numbers. b Gametocyte specific genes are the most highly expressed genes in ex vivo P. vivax RNAseq transcriptomes. The x axis refers to the ratio of FPKM levels for sexual to asexual stages gene expressions. The top quartile of most highly expressed genes (Normalized rank score > =75) in the ex vivo data consisted of more than 40% of gametocyte specific genes
