[Entamoeba histolytica].
The prevalence of Entamoeba histolytica in Baiji area and the effect of Punica granatum rind extract on the parasite growth were studied .Stool samples collected from(118)males and(100)females duringExpand
Elucidation of the DNA Synthetic Cycle of Entamoeba Spp. Using Flow Cytometry and Mathematical Modeling
ABSTRACT. We developed a method to study the DNA synthetic cycles of Entamoeba histolytica and Entamoeba invadens by flow cytometry (FCM) based on a preparative procedure to reduce both high levelsExpand
Detection of pathogenic Entamoeba histolytica DNA in liver abscess fluid by polymerase chain reaction.
A sensitive method for detection of pathogenic Entamoeba histolytica DNA in drained fluids from liver abscess patients, using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), has been developed. The PCR employsExpand
Asymptomatic cyst passers of Entamoeba histolytica but not Entamoeba dispar in institutions for the mentally retarded in Japan.
Entamoeba histolytica/Entamoeba dispar was isolated from 50 asymptomatic amebic cyst passers in three institutions for the mentally retarded in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. To distinguish between E.Expand
Molecular cloning and characterization of the genes encoding two isoforms of cysteine synthase in the enteric protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica.
The enteric protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica was shown to possess cysteine synthase (CS) activity. The cDNA and genomic clones that encode two isoforms of the E. histolytica CS were isolatedExpand
New triterpenes, myrrhanol A and myrrhanone A, from guggul-gum resins, and their potent anti-inflammatory effect on adjuvant-induced air-pouch granuloma of mice.
Myrrhanol A, a new triterpene isolated from guggul (Balsamodendron or Commiphora mukul Hook.)-gum resin, displays a potent anti-inflammatory effect on exudative pouch fluid, angiogenesis, andExpand
Effect of calcium antagonists, calcium channel blockers and calmodulin inhibitors on the growth and encystation of Entamoeba histolytica and E. invadens
Abstract. The effects of calcium antagonists, calcium channel blockers, and calmodulin inhibitors on the growth of Entamoeba histolytica and the growth and encystation of Entamoeba invadens wereExpand
Identification of a pathogenic isolate-specific 30,000-Mr antigen of Entamoeba histolytica by using a monoclonal antibody.
A monoclonal antibody (MAb) produced against trophozoites of Entamoeba histolytica strain HM-1:IMSS, reacted with all of 42 isolates and 4 clones showing pathogenic zymodeme (Z) patterns, i.e., Z-II,Expand
Differences in genomic DNA sequences between pathogenic and nonpathogenic isolates of Entamoeba histolytica identified by polymerase chain reaction.
A lambda gt11 cDNA library was constructed from the poly(A)+ RNA of trophozoites of Entamoeba histolytica HM-1:IMSS strain. The library was immunologically screened with monoclonal antibody 4G6,Expand
A heat-modifiable outer membrane protein carries an antigen specific for the species Yersinia enterocolitica and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis.
The outer membranes of gram-negative bacteria are considered to be of importance in host-bacteria interaction, in protective immunity, and occasionally in subclassification within a species. In thisExpand
