For the identification of quantitative genetic differences between pathogenic Entamoeba histolytica and the closely related but nonpathogenic species E. dispar, a set of 68 independent probes that had previously been isolated from an E. histolytica cDNA library were hybridized to total genomic DNA of both amoeba species. Besides ehcp5, the sequence that codes for cysteine proteinase 5 and has recently been shown to be missing in E. dispar, only one of the probes exclusively reacted with E… CONTINUE READING
