Ultrastructural analysis of Entamoeba histolytica reveals that this intestinal human pathogen lacks recognizable mitochondria, but the presence in its genome of genes encoding proteins of mitochondrial origin suggests the existence of a mitochondrially derived compartment. We have cloned the full‐length E. histolytica gene encoding one such protein, chaperonin CPN60, and have characterized its structure and expression. Using an affinity‐purified antibody raised against recombinant protein, we… Expand
