Encystation of Entamoeba invadens IP-1 strain trophozoites was induced in low glucose medium (LG). The numbers of trophozoites, cysts and nuclei per cyst were determined; excystation of detergent-resistant axenic cysts was induced in both BI-S-33 and LG media. It was found that after 48 and 72 h of incubation in LG, cyst production was higher than… CONTINUE READING
