Subgenus classification of Acanthamoeba by riboprinting.
Subgenus classification of Acanthamoeba remains uncertain. Twenty-three reference strains of Acanthamoeba including 18 (neo)type-strains were subjected for classification at the subgenus level byExpand

Endosymbionts of Acanthamoeba isolated from domestic tap water in Korea.
In a previous study, we reported our discovery of Acanthamoeba contamination in domestic tap water; in that study, we determined that some Acanthamoeba strains harbor endosymbiotic bacteria, via ourExpand
