Giardia lamblia is a protozoan that parasitizes the small intestine of vertebrates. It is a cause of intestinal infection and diarrhea and infects millions of people worldwide. This protozoan presents many characteristics common to eukaryotic cells but it lacks organelles found in most eukaryotes (e.g., peroxisomes, typical Golgi complex and mitochondria). Also it presents mitosomes, a relic organelle that appears to be a mitochondrial remnant. Cell death in Giardia was induced by the drug beta… CONTINUE READING
