New insights into the role of the cytoskeleton in phagocytosis of Entamoeba histolytica.

Abstract

Entamoeba histolytica, a human parasite, crosses the natural barriers of the intestine and, in turn, spreads into the deeper organs, resulting in amoebiasis. The motility of the parasite and its ability to lyse or phagocytose human cells facilitates passage of the amoeba through the intestinal epithelium.
