Increasing experimental evidence shows a prominent role of histone modifications in the coordinated control of gene expression in the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. The search for the histone-mark-reading machinery that translates histone modifications into biological processes, such as formation of heterochromatin and antigenic variation is(More)
The ehFLN protein (previously known as EhABP-120) is the first filamin to be identified in the parasitic protozoan Entamoeba histolytica. Filamins are a family of cross-linking actin-binding proteins that organize filamentous actin in networks and stress fibers. It has been reported that filamins of different organisms directly interact with more than 30(More)
This paper reports the EhGEF1-EhRacG and EhGEF1-EhRho1 molecular complexes from Entamoeba histolytica. The not conserved amino acids Gln201,Tyr299, Gln302, Lys312, Asn313, Phe314 and Ile324 were localized, by means of an in silico computational analysis, at the interface of the exposed face from the DH domain of EhGEF1, which are important to establish the(More)
Entamoeba histolytica is an ameboid parasite that causes colonic dysentery and liver abscesses in humans. The parasite encounters dramatic changes in iron concentration during its invasion of the host, with relatively low levels in the intestinal lumen and then relatively high levels in the blood and liver. The liver notably contains sources of iron;(More)
