Localization of phosphatidylinositol (3,4,5)-trisphosphate to phagosomes in entamoeba histolytica achieved using glutathione S-transferase- and green fluorescent protein-tagged lipid biosensors.

Abstract

Entamoeba histolytica is an intestinal protozoan parasite that causes amoebic dysentery and liver abscess. Phagocytosis by the parasite is a critical virulence process, since it is a prerequisite for tissue invasion and establishment of chronic infection. While the roles of many of the proteins that regulate phagocytosis-related signaling events in E… (More)
