Distribution of antisense:sense ratio (AS:S) across the 14 parasite chromosomes and an example of 'run-through' transcript in tail-to-tail orientation. (A) Distribution of antisense:sense (AS:S) ratios across the 14 chromosomes (Ch1-14) in the GV stage. (B) A pair of genes showing transcripts possibly 'running through' into a neighboring gene in opposite orientation, possibly suppressing the expression of the neighboring gene. MAL7P1.175b is not annotated in the current Plasmodium falciparum genome.
