Several species are found in humans and animals. In Baron S; et al. The parasite forms by binary fission like most Entamoeba spp.

The other species are important because they may be confused with E. Molecular base pair standard, bp ladder from to 1, bp. Wikispecies has information related to Entamoeba.

Food Biotechnology Second ed. To make the naming of these organisms less confusing, entamoega contractions” are used to histolytic the species for the purpose making the naming easier; for example, using Esch.

Taxonomy of Entamoeba histolytica

This amoeba, in its trophozoite stage, is only visible in fresh, unfixed stool specimens. It divides by simple binary fission to form two smaller daughter cells. Life Cycle, Mode of Infection and Treatment”. In some patients the trophozoites invade the intestinal mucosa: These tests involve the use of laboratory methods.

If antibodies are not detectable in patients with an acute presentation of suspected amebic liver abscess, a second specimen should be drawn days later.
