The genome of the protist parasite Entamoeba histolytica
Entamoeba histolytica is an intestinal parasite and the causative agent of amoebiasis, which is a significant source of morbidity and mortality in developing countries. Here we present the genome ofExpand

Structure and content of the Entamoeba histolytica genome.
The intestinal parasite Entamoeba histolytica is one of the first protists for which a draft genome sequence has been published. Although the genome is still incomplete, it is unlikely that manyExpand

Circular DNA of Entamoeba histolytica encodes ribosomal RNA.
The presence of repeated DNA sequences encoding RNA in Entamoeba histolytica has been reported. In the present study we demonstrate by agarose gel electrophoresis. DNase digestion and electronExpand

Calcium binding protein 1 of the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica interacts with actin and is involved in cytoskeleton dynamics
Blocking expression of EhCaBP1, a calmodulin-like, four EF-hand protein from the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica, resulted in inhibition of cellular proliferation. In this paper we reportExpand

Inter- and intra-strain variation in the 5.8S ribosomal RNA and internal transcribed spacer sequences of Entamoeba histolytica and comparison with Entamoeba dispar, Entamoeba moshkovskii and
The ribosomal RNA genes in Entamoeba histolytica are located on circular DNA molecules in about 200 copies per genome equivalent. Nucleotide sequence analysis of the 5.8S rRNA gene and the flankingExpand

Recognition of Entamoeba histolytica lipophosphoglycan by a strain-specific monoclonal antibody and human immune sera.
Western blot analysis showed that the monoclonal antibody 2D7.10 recognized lipophosphoglycan (LPG) from Entamoeba histolytica HM-1:IMSS. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresisExpand

Entamoeba histolytica extrachromosomal circular ribosomal DNA: analysis of clonal variation in a hypervariable region.
The ribosomal RNA genes of the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica are highly repeated and display restriction fragment length polymorphism. Using a set of four DNA probes spanning the codingExpand

A C2 domain protein kinase initiates phagocytosis in the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica.
Phagocytosis is a process whereby particles are taken in by cells through mechanisms superficially similar to those for endocytosis. It serves a wide range of functions, from providing nutrition inExpand

Thermodynamics of metal ion binding and denaturation of a calcium binding protein from Entamoeba histolytica.
The thermodynamics of the binding of calcium and magnesium ions to a calcium binding protein from Entamoeba histolytica was investigated by isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) in 20 mM MOPS bufferExpand

The nucleolus in Entamoeba histolytica and Entamoeba invadens is located at the nuclear periphery.
The ribosomal RNA genes in the human parasite Entamoeba histolytica and its reptilian counterpart Entamoeba invadens are located on extrachromosomal circles. The expression of rRNA genes generallyExpand
