Hsp60 is targeted to a cryptic mitochondrion-derived organelle ("crypton") in the microaerophilic protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica. (1/861)

Entamoeba histolytica is a microaerophilic protozoan parasite in which neither mitochondria nor mitochondrion-derived organelles have been previously observed. Recently, a segment of an E. histolytica gene was identified that encoded a protein similar to the mitochondrial 60-kDa heat shock protein (Hsp60 or chaperonin 60), which refolds nuclear-encoded proteins after passage through organellar membranes. The possible function and localization of the amebic Hsp60 were explored here. Like Hsp60 of mitochondria, amebic Hsp60 RNA and protein were both strongly induced by incubating parasites at 42 degreesC. 5' and 3' rapid amplifications of cDNA ends were used to obtain the entire E. histolytica hsp60 coding region, which predicted a 536-amino-acid Hsp60. The E. histolytica hsp60 gene protected from heat shock Escherichia coli groEL mutants, demonstrating the chaperonin function of the amebic Hsp60. The E. histolytica Hsp60, which lacked characteristic carboxy-terminal Gly-Met repeats, had a 21-amino-acid amino-terminal, organelle-targeting presequence that was cleaved in vivo. This presequence was necessary to target Hsp60 to one (and occasionally two or three) short, cylindrical organelle(s). In contrast, amebic alcohol dehydrogenase 1 and ferredoxin, which are bacteria-like enzymes, were diffusely distributed throughout the cytosol. We suggest that the Hsp60-associated, mitochondrion-derived organelle identified here be named "crypton," as its structure was previously hidden and its function is still cryptic.  (+info)

Prevalence of intestinal parasite infections with special reference to Entamoeba histolytica on the island of Bioko (Equatorial Guinea). (2/861)

The prevalence of intestinal parasitic infections was assessed (1993 through 1995) among two different groups of persons on the island of Bioko, Equatorial Guinea. In the first group, parasitologic examinations were performed on stool specimens from a household-based sample of 557 dwellers from the rural area of the island. In the second group, 1,633 inpatients and outpatients at the General Hospital of Malabo (the capital of the country) were studied. All age groups were represented in both groups. The average prevalence of the most common protozoan and helminthic intestinal infections in rural and urban areas, respectively, was as follows: Entamoeba histolytica/E. dispar (14.9% and 32.7%, respectively), Giardia lamblia (7.2% and 8.6%), Ascaris lumbricoides (45.8% and 31.4%), and Trichuris trichiura (25.7% and 36.4%). Seventy-nine sera from patients with amebic liver abscess (suspected by ultrasonography) were studied by an immunohemagglutination assay, with 44 (56%) showing anti-E. histolytica titers > or = 1:32. Of these 79 sera, 71 were studied by an enzyme immunoassay, 86% of which were positive with titers > or = 1:64. This study showed that parasitic infections in Equatorial Guinea represent a major health problem.  (+info)

Characterization of YS-27, an axenic Korean strain of Entamoeba histolytica. (3/861)

Characterization of YS-27, an axenic Entamoeba strain, was performed by three different laboratory methods. Zymodeme analysis using starch gel electrophoresis and PCR with species-specific primers showed that YS-27 is a pathogenic Entamoeba which belongs to the group II zymodeme. Pathogenicity of YS-27 was further confirmed by observing the formation of liver abscess in Mongolian gerbils. These results showed that YS-27 is E. hisolytica.  (+info)

The TATA-box binding protein of Entamoeba histolytica: cloning of the gene and location of the protein by immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy. (4/861)

A 309 bp DNA fragment from Entamoeba histolytica was amplified by PCR using primers derived from the Acanthamoeba castellanii consensus TATA-box binding protein amino acid sequence. The amplified fragment was used to isolate cDNA and genomic DNA clones containing an ORF encoding the complete E. histolytica TATA-box binding protein (Ehtbp, 702 bp, 234 aa, molecular mass 26 kDa). The EhTBP functional domain showed 55% sequence identity to that of Homo sapiens, 54% to A. castellanii and 37% to Plasmodium falciparum TBPs. In Southern blot experiments we detected a single Ehtbp band, which was transcribed as a 1.3 kb mRNA containing a 420 nt 5' untranslated region. However, the probe hybridized with the 0.8 and 1.5 Mb chromosomes, suggesting that this sequence is diploid. In situ PCR assays showed two signals in 95% of trophozoites, one located in the nucleus and another in EhkO, the novel DNA-containing organelle recently reported. The recombinant E. histolytica TATA-box binding protein was expressed in Escherichia coli. Antibodies against it recognized two proteins of 26 and 29 kDa in E. histolytica nuclear extracts. Confocal microscopy immunofluorescence analysis located the protein in both the nucleus and EhkO.  (+info)

Preparation of recombinant human monoclonal antibody Fab fragments specific for Entamoeba histolytica. (5/861)

Genes coding for human antibody Fab fragments specific for Entamoeba histolytica were cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. Lymphocytes were separated from the peripheral blood of a patient with an amebic liver abscess. Poly(A)+ RNA was isolated from the lymphocytes, and then genes coding for the light chain and Fd region of the heavy chain were amplified by a reverse transcriptase PCR. The amplified DNA fragments were ligated with a plasmid vector and were introduced into Escherichia coli. Three thousand colonies were screened for the production of antibodies to E. histolytica HM-1:IMSS by an indirect fluorescence-antibody (IFA) test. Lysates from five Escherichia coli clones were positive. Analysis of the DNA sequences of the five clones showed that three of the five heavy-chain sequences and four of the five light-chain sequences differed from each other. When the reactivities of the Escherichia coli lysates to nine reference strains of E. histolytica were examined by the IFA test, three Fab fragments with different DNA sequences were found to react with all nine strains and another Fab fragment was found to react with seven strains. None of the four human monoclonal antibody Fab fragments reacted with Entamoeba dispar reference strains or with other enteric protozoan parasites. These results indicate that the bacterial expression system reported here is effective for the production of human monoclonal antibodies specific for E. histolytica. The recombinant human monoclonal antibody Fab fragments may be applicable for distinguishing E. histolytica from E. dispar and for use in the serodiagnosis of amebiasis.  (+info)

Down regulation of Entamoeba histolytica virulence by monoxenic cultivation with Escherichia coli O55 is related to a decrease in expression of the light (35-kilodalton) subunit of the Gal/GalNAc lectin. (6/861)

Entamoeba histolytica virulence is related to a number of amebic components (lectins, cysteine proteinases, and amebapore) and host factors, such as intestinal bacterial flora. Trophozoites are selective in their interactions with bacteria, and the parasite recognition of glycoconjugates plays an important role in amebic virulence. Long-term monoxenic cultivation of pathogenic E. histolytica trophozoites, strains HK-9 or HM-1:IMSS, with Escherichia coli serotype O55, which binds strongly to the Gal/GalNAc amebic lectin, markedly reduced the trophozoites' adherence and cytopathic activity on cell monolayers of baby hamster kidney (BHK) cells. Specific probes prepared from E. histolytica lectin genes as well as antibodies directed against the light (35-kDa) and heavy (170-kDa) subunits of the Gal/GalNAc lectin revealed a decrease in the transcription and expression of the light subunit in trophozoites grown monoxenically with E. coli O55. This effect was not observed when E. histolytica was grown with E. coli 346, a mannose-binding type I pilated bacteria. Our results suggest that the light subunit of the amebic lectin is involved in the modulation of parasite adherence and cytopathic activity.  (+info)

Chitinase secretion by encysting Entamoeba invadens and transfected Entamoeba histolytica trophozoites: localization of secretory vesicles, endoplasmic reticulum, and Golgi apparatus. (7/861)

Entamoeba histolytica, the protozoan parasite that phagocytoses bacteria and host cells, has a vesicle/vacuole-filled cytosol like that of macrophages. In contrast, the infectious cyst form has four nuclei and a chitin wall. Here, anti-chitinase antibodies identified hundreds of small secretory vesicles in encysting E. invadens parasites and in E. histolytica trophozoites overexpressing chitinase under an actin gene promoter. Abundant small secretory vesicles were also identified with antibodies to the surface antigen Ariel and with a fluorescent substrate of cysteine proteinases. Removal of an N-terminal signal sequence directed chitinase to the cytosol. Addition of a C-terminal KDEL peptide, identified on amebic BiP, retained chitinase in a putative endoplasmic reticulum, which was composed of a few vesicles of mixed sizes. A putative Golgi apparatus, which was Brefeldin A sensitive and composed of a few large, perinuclear vesicles, was identified with antibodies to ADP-ribosylating factor and to epsilon-COP. We conclude that the amebic secretory pathway is similar to those of other eukaryotic cells, even if its appearance is somewhat different.  (+info)

Intestinal mucins in colonization and host defense against pathogens. (8/861)

Intestinal mucins are key components of the first line of host defense against intestinal pathogens. These large glycoconjugates secreted by specialized exocrine goblet cells form viscous gels that trap microorganisms and irritants and limit their diffusion to the intestinal epithelium. Moreover, they allow for colonization by indigenous bacterial flora that prevents attachment of pathogenic microbes. The interaction between microbes and mucins involves mucin carbohydrate side chains and microbial adhesin molecules. Certain microorganisms and disease states may alter mucin biochemistry or expression. Although these alterations most likely contribute to disease processes, the full impact of these phenomena are still unclear. The development of mucin-secreting cell lines has facilitated the study of mucin biology and aided our understanding of mucin-microbial interactions.  (+info)

The existence of mitochondrion-related relict organelles (mitosomes) in the amitochondrial human pathogen Entamoeba histolytica and the detection of extranuclear DNA-containing cytoplasmic structures (EhKOs) has led to the suggestion that a remnant genome from the original mitochondrial endosymbiont might have been retained in this organism. This study reports on the mutually exclusive distribution of Cpn60 and extranuclear DNA in E. histolytica and on the distribution of Cpn60-containing mitosomes in this parasite. In situ nick-translation coupled to immunofluorescence microscopy failed to detect the presence of DNA in mitosomes, either in fixed parasite trophozoites or in partially purified organellar fractions. These results indicate that a remnant organellar genome has not been retained in E. histolytica mitosomes and demonstrate unequivocally that EhKOs and mitosomes are distinct and unrelated cellular structures.

The protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica causes invasive intestinal and extraintestinal infections in about 50 million people world-wide resulting in a death toll of up to 100,000 people annually. It remains a significant cause of human death in developing countries such as Bangladesh and Vietnam. However, four out of five E. histolytica infections remain asymptomatic. What determines the outcome of an E. histolytica infection is largely unknown. The DNA content of E. histolytica grown in axenic cultures (in the absence of bacteria) is at least 10 fold higher than in xenic cultures. In turn, re-growth of axenized parasites in the presence of bacteria leads to reduction of DNA content to the original xenic values. A similar reversible increase in genomic DNA content has been described during passage from cyst to trophozoite in E. invadens, a model organism for encystations. There exists evidence to suggest that variation in genome content is the result of the accumulation of multiple copies ...

Author SummaryEntamoeba histolytica, morphologically identical to but genetically different from E. dispar and E. moshkovskii, is the causative agent of amebiasis. Recently there have been reports of increased risk for amebiasis among men who have sex with men (MSM) due to oral-anal sexual contact in several developed countries. In this longitudinal follow-up study, the incidence of amebiasis was determined among HIV-infected patients using serological and specific amebic antigen assays. DNA extracted from stool samples containing E. histolytica were analyzed by PCR, sequenced, and compared. Clinical manifestations and treatment response of invasive amebiasis in HIV-infected patients were reviewed. The results demonstrated that HIV-infected MSM were at significantly higher risk of amebiasis than patients from other risk groups. Clustering of E. histolytica isolates by sequencing analyses from geographically unrelated patients suggested person-to-person transmission. Despite immunosuppression, amebic
The majority of individuals infected with E. histolytica are asymptomatic carriers, but invasion does occur in a small percentage of those afflicted with the parasite (33). In order for invasion to occur, the parasite must overcome the protective mucous layer lining the colon. Histopathology studies of the human colon and rectum have revealed that the mucous layer lining these regions is separated into two striated layers. The outer layer contains most of the bacterial and fecal contents, and the inner layer contains little to no bacteria (21). These observations imply that mucin plays a role in establishing a clear barrier between luminal contents, including pathogens, and the colonic epithelium.. Previous studies have indicated that E. histolytica cellular lysates and SPs were ineffective at degrading human colonic mucin, and it was suggested that the parasite may cause a mechanical depletion of the mucous blanket by inducing goblet cell hypersecretion prior to invasion (31). In this study, we ...

N2 - Ubiquitination is important for numerous cellular processes in most eukaryotic organisms, including cellular proliferation, development, and protein turnover by the proteasome. The intestinal parasite Entamoeba histolytica harbors an extensive ubiquitin-proteasome system. Proteasome inhibitors are known to impair parasite proliferation and encystation, suggesting the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway as a viable therapeutic target. However, no functional studies of the E. histolytica ubiquitination enzymes have yet emerged. Here, we have cloned and characterized multiple E. histolytica ubiquitination components, spanning ubiquitin and its activating (E1), conjugating (E2), and ligating (E3) enzymes. Crystal structures of EhUbiquitin reveal a clustering of unique residues on the α1 helix surface, including an eighth surface ...
In vitro studies have proved the presence of epitopes of CD59 in the surface of trophozoites of Entamoeba histolytica (E. histolytica). However, it has not been proved if CD59 molecules are expressed in the surface during the trophozoites tissue invasion. The aim of the present study was to determine whether the complement-regulatory protein CD59 is present on trophozoites of E. histolytica in human colon. Eleven specimens of amoebic colitis were studied by immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy techniques with a monoclonal antibody against human CD59 molecule. Our results show that a CD59-like molecule is expressed in trophozoites of E. histolytica found in colonic amebic lesions. Also, a CD59-like molecule was detected by western blot analysis in whole lysate of E. histolytica as well as on the plasma membrane by immunocytochemistry. These results suggest that E. histolytica can use CD59-like protein against the lytic action of membrane attack complex.

Author SummaryThere is a highly ordered process by which the parasite Entamoeba histolytica interacts with human cells. Adherence via a parasite lectin is followed in seconds by killing, with only the corpse and not a living cell ingested by the ameba. This process is so central to pathogenesis that clinicians use the presence of ingested erythrocytes to identify E. histolytica and distinguish it from harmless commensal amebae of the gut. We hypothesized that identification of molecules involved in the ingestion of the corpse might provide insight into how amebae cause colitis. We identified a member of the transmembrane kinase family as an early component of the phagosome. Inhibition of this kinase blocked red cell ingestion and prevented amebae from colonizing and invading the gut. There was no impact on dominant-negative parasites to cause liver abscess, suggesting the pathogenesis program differs between anatomic sites. Future studies of the transmembrane kinanse in erythrophagocytosis may provide
Entamoeba coli is a non-pathogenic species of Entamoeba that frequently exists as a commensal parasite in the human gastrointestinal tract. E. coli (not to be confused with the bacterium Escherichia coli) is important in medicine because it can be confused during microscopic examination of stained stool specimens with the pathogenic Entamoeba histolytica. This amoeba does not move much by the use of its pseudopod, and creates a sur place (non-progressive) movement inside the large intestine. Usually, the amoeba is immobile, and keeps its round shape. This amoeba, in its trophozoite stage, is only visible in fresh, unfixed stool specimens. Sometimes the Entamoeba coli have parasites as well. One is the fungus Sphaerita spp. This fungus lives in the cytoplasm of the E. coli. While this differentiation is typically done by visual examination of the parasitic cysts via light microscopy, new methods using molecular biology techniques have been developed. The scientific name of the amoeba, E. coli, ...

The genus Entamoeba is composed of five species that infect humans: E. histolytica, E. dispar, E. hartmanni, E. coli, E. polecki and E. gingivalis. Once the trophozoites are excysted in the terminal ileum region, they colonize the large bowel, remaining on the surface of the mucus layer and feeding on bacteria and food particles. People without symptoms: Once the trophozoites are excysted in the terminal ileum region, they colonize the large bowel, remaining on the surface of the mucus layer and feeding on bacteria and food particles. The major group of transposable elements in E. histolytica are non-LTR retrotransposons. The contagious period lasts as long as the infected patient excretes cysts in their stools. Amoebiasis, also known amoebic dysentery, is an infection caused by any of the amoebae of the Entamoeba group. What is the prognosis of amebiasis? The diagnosis of E. histolytica ...
Light microscope footage of Entamoeba histolytica protozoa. E. histolytica is a parasite that causes amoebic dysentery in humans. Seen here is the active trophozoite form of the parasite, which lives in the human intestines, causing ulceration and symptoms including diarrhoea, cramps, fever and weight loss. If untreated, the amoeba can move to the liver and other organs, and the infection can prove fatal in some cases. The disease is endemic in regions with poor sanitation. The parasites are passed in faeces, and can survive outside the body as long-lasting cysts, which revert to the active trophozoite stage when ingested. Proper hygiene aids prevention of the disease. Treatment is with antimicrobial drugs. The trophozoites can reach 20 microns in diameter. This is the Human Mexico 1 (HM-1) strain. - Stock Video Clip K003/8943
Amoebiasis caused by Entamoeba histolytica is associated with high morbidity and mortality is becoming a major public health problem worldwide, especially in developing countries. Because of the side-effects and the resistance that pathogenic protozoa build against the standard antiparasitic drugs, e.g., metronidazole, much recent attention has been paid to plants used in traditional medicine around the world in order to find new antiprotozoal agents. We collected 32 plants used in Northeast Mexican traditional medicine and the methanolic extracts of these species were screened for antiprotozoal activity against E. histolytica trophozoites using in vitro tests. Only 18 extracts showed a significant inhibiting activity and among them six plant extracts showed more than 80% growth inhibition against E. histolytica at a concentration of 150 µg/mL and the IC50 values of these extracts were determined. Lippia graveolens Kunth and Ruta chalepensis Pers. showed the more significant antiprotozoal activity (91
Lipid rafts, sterol- and sphingolipid-rich membrane microdomains, have been shown to control virulence in a variety of parasites including Entamoeba histolytica, an intestinal parasite that causes dysentery and liver abscess. Parasite cell surface receptors, such as the Gal/GalNAc lectin, facilitate attachment to host cells and extracellular matrix. The Gal/GalNAc lectin binds to galactose or N-acetylgalactosamine residues on host components, and is composed of heavy (Hgl), intermediate (Igl), and light (Lgl) subunits. Although Igl is constitutively localized to lipid rafts, Hgl and Lgl transiently associate with this compartment in a cholesterol-dependent fashion. Exposure to bonafide Gal/GalNAc lectin ligands is associated with enrichment of the subunits in rafts. Direct lectin-ligand interactions and sufficient levels of both PIP2 and calcium were shown to be necessary for lectin enrichment in rafts. Additionally, an initial analysis of both post-translational modifications and protein interactions
Summary Attempts to utilize the rat cecal scoring technique of Neal to measure the invasiveness of strains of Entamoeba histolytica gave inconsistent results when Sherman strain rats were used. Results with Wistar rats were more consistent. Two strains of E. histolytica, one in culture for 11 years and another in culture for 4 years, were still as highly infective and invasive as were four strains recently isolated from cases of symptomatic amebiasis. Strain F22 originally isolated from an amebic abscess of the brain showed diminished infectivity and invasiveness. Its infectivity and invasiveness were restored to a level comparable to recently isolated strains when organisms were passed rapidly through rats and culture.

Abstract Synchronous growth of axenic Entamoeba histolytica was induced by nutritional deprivation and/or hydroxyurea. Axenic amebae maintained in 2% serum culture medium for 17-25 hours and returned to complete TP-S-1 (10% serum) medium showed a single synchronous cycle with a mean division time of 8.8 hours and a synchrony index of 0.47. Exposure to 10 mM hydroxyurea for 20-26 hours induced a single synchronous cycle with a division time of 3.0 hours and a synchrony index of 0.85. Hydroxyurea was toxic to 56% of the cells in the culture. The control generation time in TP-S-1 medium was 14.8 hours. Cells maintained for 44 hours in a nucleotide-deficient medium followed by a 10 mM hydroxyurea treatment exhibited two synchronous cycles. The first cycle had a generation time of 5.0 hours, a division time of 2.2 hours, and a synchrony index of 0.84.
Entamoeba histolytica is an intestinal protozoan parasite of humans that causes amebic colitis and amebic liver abscess: diseases associated with significant levels of morbidity and mortality worldwide [1]. The organism has a simple life cycle, existing as either the motile trophozoite or the infectious, hardy cyst form. Trophozoites of E. histolytica reside within the anaerobic confines of the human colon, lack mitochondria, derive energy from fermentation and reproduce by binary fission. E. histolytica trophozoites can be potent pathogens, possessing an armamentarium that includes a galactose-N-acetyl-galactosamine-binding lectin that mediates adherence to host cells, pore-forming proteins (amebapores) that can lyse bacteria or eukaryotic cells, cysteine proteinases that can cleave extracellular-matrix proteins and facilitate invasion into the colonic mucosa, and impressive phagocytic capabilities [1]. During the past three decades, the tools of molecular biology have greatly increased the ...
Infection with E. histolytica occurs orally with the intake of cysts. The vegetative form of the parasite develops from these cysts in the small intestine. This trophozoite multiplies and differentiates mostly in the colon. The clinical symptoms of an amebiasis are triggered by the invasion of parasites from the intestinal lumen into the mucous membrane of the colon. Diarrhea, dysentery or even ameboma are results of the invasion into the intestinal mucosa. If dissemination occurs, further complications can be liver abscesses, lung abscesses or in rare cases even brain abscesses, which can be fatal if left untreated. If an extraintestinal amebiasis was suspected, sonography should be the method of the choice. Since this method cannot always differentiate an abscess caused by E. histolytica from other abscesses or carcinoma, an antibody detection should be made to support other clinical findings. Antibodies are usually detectable with the beginning of the clinical symptoms. Due to the often ...

Amoebiasis is caused by the parasite Entamoeba histolytica. Most infections are asymptomatic, but can cause intestinal or extra-intestinal disease.
A total of 90 stool sample was collected from patients with gastroenteritis to detect adenovirus antigen among diarrhea cases. They were tested by general stool examination (GSE), rapid immunochromatographic test and Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA). GSE showed that adenovirus gastroenteritis infection resulted in non-bloody diarrhea, the existence of RBCs in 7% and Pus in 37% of the samples, Entamoeba histolytica trophozoite and cyst were seen in 3% and 2% of the samples respectively. The rapid test showed that 21% of samples were positive for rotavirus, 8% for adenovirus and 3% for astrovirus. Meanwhile, the ELISA test showed that adenovirus was positive in 9% of the samples. These findings established the evidence that adenovirus is significantly the second viral agent that cause gastroenteritis among children after rotavirus. Furthermore, it must be stated that rapid diagnostic methods are important for detection of adenovirus infection.. ...

HIV-infected persons who are men having sex with men (MSM) are prone to acquire invasive amebiasis. It would cast great threat for public health if the pathogens are spread by way of human to human transmission and food contamination.. From 2000 to 2004, we assessed the seroprevalence of Entamoeba histolytica infection using indirect hemagglutination antibody (IHA) assay among 667 HIV-infected persons (group 1), 1311 asymptomatic HIV-uninfected persons seeking anonymous HIV testing (group 2), 616 HIV-uninfected controls with gastrointestinal symptoms (diarrhea and/or liver abscess) seeking medical care (group 3), and 2500 healthy controls undergoing health check-up (group 4). An IHA titer greater than 128 was detected in 7.1% of group 1, 2.5% of group 2, 1.8% of group 3, and 0.1% of group 4 (p,0.0001). The highest seroprevalence (11.2%) was noted among HIV-infected persons who were MSM aged 30 to 39 years. Compared with persons with gastrointestinal symptoms, the adjusted odds ratio for having ...

Entamoeba is a genus of Amoebozoa found as internal parasites or commensals of animals. In 1875, Fedor Lösch described the first proven case of amoebic dysentery in St. Petersburg, Russia. He referred to the amoeba he observed microscopically as Amoeba coli; however it is not clear whether he was using this as a descriptive term or intended it as a formal taxonomic name. The genus Entamoeba was defined by Casagrandi and Barbagallo for the species Entamoeba coli, which is known to be a commensal organism. Löschs organism was renamed Entamoeba histolytica by Fritz Schaudinn in 1903; he later died, in 1906, from a self-inflicted infection when studying this amoeba. For a time during the first half of the 20th century the entire genus Entamoeba was transferred to Endamoeba, a genus of amoebas infecting invertebrates about which little is known. This move was reversed by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature in the late 1950s, and Entamoeba has stayed stable ever since. ...
Covalent modification of proteins by ubiquitin (Ub) and ubiquitin-like modifiers (Ubls) regulates many cellular functions in eukaryotes. These modifications are likely to be associated with pathogenesis, growth, and development of many protozoan parasites but molecular details about this pathway are unavailable for most protozoa. This study presents an analysis of the Ub pathway in three members of the Entamoeba species. Using bioinformatics tools we have identified all Ub and Ubl genes along with their corresponding activating, conjugating, and ligating enzymes (E1, E2s, and E3s) in three Entamoeba species, Entamoeba histolytica, Entamoeba dispar, and Entamoeba invadens. Phylogenetic trees were established for the identified E2s and RING finger E3s using maximum-likelihood method to infer the relationship among these proteins. In silico co-domain analysis of RING finger E3s implicates these proteins in a variety of functions. Several known and putative regulatory motifs were identified in the upstream
Date:. May 20, 2012. Source:. University of California, San Diego Health Sciences. Summary:. An existing drug has been found to be effective against Entamoeba histolytica. This parasite causes amebic dysentery and liver abscesses and results in the death of more than 70,000 people worldwide each year.. Research by a collaborative group of scientists from UC San Diego School of Medicine, UC San Francisco and Wake Forest School of Medicine has led to identification of an existing drug that is effective against Entamoeba histolytica. This parasite causes amebic dysentery and liver abscesses and results in the death of more than 70,000 people worldwide each year.. Using a high-throughput screen for drugs developed by the research team, they discovered that auranofin -- a drug approved by the US Food and Drug Administration 25 years ago for rheumatoid arthritis -- is very effective in targeting an enzyme that protects amebae from oxygen attack (thus enhancing sensitivity of the amebae to reactive ...

Amebiasis FAQ. Amebiasis What is amebiasis? Amebiasis is an intestinal illness caused by a microscopic parasite called Entamoeba histolytica.. Who gets amebiasis? Anyone can get amebiasis, but it occurs more often in people arriving from tropical countries that have poor sanitary conditions, in individuals in institutions for the developmentally disabled, and in men who have sex with men.. How is amebiasis spread? The disease can be spread through food or water that has been contaminated with feces from an infected person. It can also be spread from person-to-person through sexual practices with fecal-oral contact. Infected people are the only sources of the parasite.. What are the symptoms of amebiasis? People exposed to this parasite may experience mild or severe symptoms or no symptoms at all. Only about 10% to 20% of people who are infected become sick, and most infected people do not become seriously ill. The symptoms of amebiasis include diarrhea, stomach pain, and stomach cramping. Amebic ...
Several eukaryotic parasites form cysts that transmit infection. The process is found in diverse organisms such as Toxoplasma, Giardia, and nematodes. In Entamoeba histolytica this process cannot be induced in vitro, making it difficult to study. In Entamoeba invadens, stage conversion can be induced, but its utility as a model system to study developmental biology has been limited by a lack of genomic resources. We carried out genome and transcriptome sequencing of E. invadens to identify molecular processes involved in stage conversion. We report the sequencing and assembly of the E. invadens genome and use whole transcriptome sequencing to characterize changes in gene expression during encystation and excystation. The E. invadens genome is larger than that of E. histolytica, apparently largely due to expansion of intergenic regions; overall gene number and the machinery for gene regulation are conserved between the species. Over half the genes are regulated during the switch between morphological
Sequences of small-subunit rRNA genes have been obtained for four new isolates of Entamoeba. Phylogenetic analyses give new insights into the evolution of these organisms. A novel Entamoeba from pigs in Vietnam that produces uninucleate cysts proved to be unrelated to other uninucleated cyst-producing species. Revival of the name Entamoeba suis for this organism is proposed. Instead of being related to Entamoeba polecki, it shares a recent common ancestor with the non-encysting Entamoeba gingivalis in a lineage that is basal to the tetranucleate cyst-producing clade. This suggests that species producing cysts with four nuclei are descended from an ancestor that produced cysts with a single nucleus. An Entamoeba from a horse was isolated in culture. No cysts were observed in the original stool sample but the sequence is placed unequivocally within the clade of tetranucleate cyst-producing species with no other sequences being specifically related. Revival of the name Entamoeba equi for this organism is

Amoebic dysentery is an acute or chronic relapsing parasitic disease leading to damage to the digestive tract, but also possible organ complications. The cause is protozoan parasites Entamoeba hystolitica. It exists in several forms - as called trophosoites with forma magna and forma minuta, and cyst.. Man is infected by fecal-oral mechanism by contaminated hands, water, foodstuffs, in which the digestive tract falls cyst. From the mature one is De-couple amoebas as forma minuta. They can remain in the intestinal lumen for a long time without causing a clinic, but are a source of new cysts in the environment. In moving to forma magna however occurs inflammation of the lining of the colon under the action of enzymes secreted by the parasite to growth and even possibly passing into the bloodstream amoebas, by which the latter may be localized in various tissues with the formation of pus local collections - abscesses.. ...
Entamoeba histolytica, an extracellular protozoan parasite is a human pathogen that invades the intestinal epithelium. Infection occurs on ingestion of contaminated water and food. The pathogenesis of amoebiasis begins with parasite attachment and disruption of the intestinal mucus layer, followed by apoptosis of host epithelial cells. Intestinal tissue destruction causes severe dysentery and ulcerations in amoebic colitis. Several amoebic proteins such as lectins, cysteine proteineases, and amoebapores are associated with the invasion process. The parasite can cause extraintestinal infection like amoebic liver abscess by evading immune response ...

Amoebiasis is a worldwide disease, particularly common in tropical countries and places where public hygiene and sanitation are poor. Amoebic infection is caused by an organism, Entamoeba histolytica (EH) which usually spreads through contaminated food and water. Since the causative organism of amoebiasis derives its nutrition from the normal bacterial flora of the large intestine, the latter is the chief site of infection. However, in some cases it may spread to other organs of the body, liver being the most susceptible to infection. Based on the site of the infection, the disease has been divided into intestinal and extra-intestinal amoebiasis.. Intestinal Amoebic Infection: During the acute phase of intestinal amoebiasis the patient may have loose motions, with or without mucus and blood, besides griping pain in the abdomen which may be severe at the time of evacuation. In chronic amoebiasis, a patient may complain of a dull pain in the lower abdomen, alternate constipation and diarrhoea, ...

Amoebic colitis is an uncommon condition in the UK which usually presents with diarrhoea, with or without bleeding. Severity can range from mild diarrhoea to amoebic dysentery requiring hospitalisation. Treatments are however much different so it is important to make a correct diagnosis early in the course of the illness. The adverse effects of steroids and disease modifying agents for Crohns disease are such that making this diagnosis rather than amoebic colitis potentially carries significant harm. In addition, given the potential infectivity of carriers of Entamoeba Histolytica cysts it is of interest to diagnose and treat this early.. A 43 year old woman presented to the gastroenterology clinic with resurgent complaints of unremitting diarrhoea, without features of PR bleeding or abdominal pain. At that time she had a three year history of diagnosed Crohns disease affecting the colon. Her original presenting symptoms were of profuse diarrhoea which had been refractory to antimotility ...
