Abstract. The effect of calcium ions (Ca2+) and calmodulin (CaM) on the excystation and metacystic development of Entamoeba invadens was examined by transfer of cysts to a growth medium containing calcium antagonists and CaM inhibitors. Excystation, which was assessed by counting the number of metacystic amoebae after induction of excystation, was inhibited by the calcium chelators ethyleneglycol bis (β-aminoethyl ether)-N,N′-tetraacetate (EGTA) and ethylene-diaminetetraacetate (EDTA), with… CONTINUE READING
