- Comparison of two immunoassays for detection of Entamoeba histolyticaSarah Buss
Department of Microbiology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia 22908, USA
J Clin Microbiol 46:2778-9. 2008..In this study, we compared the commercially available Ridascreen Entamoeba test (R-Biopharm) and the E. histolytica II test (Techlab), and we found that the E. histolytica II test detects E. histolytica infections more accurately...

Int J Parasitol 40:833-43. 2010..histolytica Gal/GalNAc lectin. Overall, our data indicates that multiple members of the novel E. histolytica TMK family are utilised for non-redundant functions by the parasite...
- Common pathways for receptor-mediated ingestion of Escherichia coli and LDL cholesterol by Entamoeba histolytica regulated in part by transmembrane kinase 39Nathaniel C V Christy

Int J Parasitol 42:393-400. 2012..coli by 55 ± 3% (P < 0.005) but not LDL particles. We concluded that ingestion of E. coli was regulated by TMK39 and partially shared the acetylated low density lipoprotein cholesterol uptake pathway...
- Entamoeba histolytica phagocytosis of human erythrocytes involves PATMK, a member of the transmembrane kinase familyDouglas R Boettner
Department of Microbiology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, United States of America
PLoS Pathog 4:e8. 2008..In conclusion, PATMK was identified as a member of the TMK family that participates in erythrophagocytosis and is uniquely required for intestinal infection...
