Project: Interactions if Entamoeba histolytica in the intestinal ecosystem.
- project duration
- 31-DEC-99 – 31-DEC-99
- The interaction of Entamoeba histolytica with bacteria, epithelial cells and neutrophils will be studied in model systems that simulate the intestinal ecosystem. Mediators of those interactions, e.g. chemotactic factors and their receptors will be purified and identified. This will hopefully provide new insights in the pathogenicity of this parasite and define new targets for the chemotherapy of amebiasis.
