Methods for Cultivation of Luminal Parasitic Protists of Clinical Importance
This review discusses the methods and media that are most widely used for the establishment and maintenance of the following organisms in culture: Entamoeba histolytica, Giardia intestinalis, Trichomonas vaginalis, DientamoebA fragilis, Blastocystis hominis, and Balantidium coli.
Genetic diversity of blastocystis in livestock and zoo animals.
DNA barcoding of blastocystis.
Emerging from Obscurity: Biological, Clinical, and Diagnostic Aspects of Dientamoeba fragilis
Although D. fragilis is most commonly identified using permanently stained fecal smears, recent advances in culturing techniques are simplifying as well as improving the ability of investigators to detect this organism, there are limitations in the use of cultures.
The genome of the protist parasite Entamoeba histolytica
The genome of E. histolytica is presented, which reveals a variety of metabolic adaptations shared with two other amitochondrial protist pathogens: Giardia lamblia and Trichomonas vaginalis, and provides new insights into the workings and genome evolution of a major human pathogen.
Subtype distribution of Blastocystis isolates from synanthropic and zoo animals and identification of a new subtype.
Entamoeba moshkovskii Infections in Children in Bangladesh
The high prevalence of E. moshkovskii with E. histolytica and E. dispar in preschool children in Bangladesh suggests that humans may be a true host for this ameba.
The mitosome, a novel organelle related to mitochondria in the amitochondrial parasite Entamoeba histolytica
The observed functional conservation between mitochondrial import in trypanosomes and mitosome import in Entamoeba is strong evidence that the E. histolytica organelle housing chaperonin CPN60 represents a mitochondrial remnant.
