Binding and cytolysis of Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells by Entamoeba histolytica trophozoites is inhibitable by galactose (Gal) or N-acetyl-D-galactosamine (GalNAc). To better define the carbohydrate receptor for E. histolytica, we compared the binding and cytolytic target properties of 10 CHO glycosylation mutants. Each mutant expresses a uniquely altered array of N- and/or O-linked cell surface carbohydrates. Amebic adherence was reduced when lactosamine-containing N-linked carbohydrates… CONTINUE READING
