It has been described that the pathogenicity of Entamoeba histolytica is influenced by environmental conditions and that transcription profile changes occur during invasion, suggesting that gene expression may be involved in the virulence of this parasite. However, the molecular mechanisms that are implicated in the control of gene expression in this(More)
Genome analysis of Entamoeba histolytica predicts the presence of acetyl-CoA carboxylase. Using Western blot, histochemistry, and confocal microscopy, we demonstrated the presence of a biotin-containing protein in the cytoplasm of E. histolytica, with a molecular weight of 136 kDa and biotin–carboxylase activity. This protein probably corresponds to a(More)
