Abstract


Genome analysis of Entamoeba histolytica predicts the presence of acetyl-CoA carboxylase. Using Western blot, histochemistry, and confocal microscopy, we demonstrated the presence of a biotin-containing protein in the cytoplasm of E. histolytica, with a molecular weight of 136kDa and biotin-carboxylase activity. This protein probably corresponds to a transcarboxylase that catalyzes the rate-limiting reaction leading to fatty acid elongation.
