Entamoeba Protein Catalog
Entamoeba histolytica, an intestinal parasite, is the causative agent of amoebiasis which is a diarrheal disease responsible for 40- 100,000 deaths primarily in developing countries. Since this protozoa has low infectious dose and may contaminate food and water supplies in the United States through dissemination, it has been categorized as a Category B priority pathogen as defined by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
