In addition to inhibiting the locomotion of human MP, MLIF appears capable of inhibiting the respiratory burst (measured by chemiluminescence) of MP and of PMN as well. The effect on the latter cells may or may not be relevant in the host-E. histolytica interaction, as PMN have been found to be notoriously inefficient in dealing with amebas and, foremost, do not use oxidative mechanisms in dealing with the parasite. On the other hand, the inhibitory effect on MP may represent a true evasion… CONTINUE READING
