Virulent strains of Entamoeba histolytica have been reported to produce a mixture of phosphoglycoconjugates that share some structural features with the lipophosphoglycans (LPGs) of Leishmania. Purification of these glycoconjugates is essential to their precise structural characterization. In this study we have extracted 'LPG-like' molecules from various virulent E. histolytica strains and purified on the basis of charge differences, 2 apparently related glycoconjugates a 'LPG' and a… CONTINUE READING
