Entamoeba histolytica genomic organization and putative promoter elements appear to be distinct from both metazoan and better characterized protozoan organisms. The recent development of DNA-mediated transfection for E. histolytica enabled characterization of cis-acting promoter elements required for gene expression. A deletion and replacement analysis was conducted on the promoter of an E. histolytica gene encoding the heavy subunit of the N-acetyl-beta-D-galactosamine-specific adhesin (hgl5… CONTINUE READING
