Abstract

The lysine and glutamic acid rich protein KERP1 is a cell surface-expressed virulence factor in the human pathogen Entamoeba histolytica. It was originally suggested that the gene was absent from the related, avirulent human commensal Entamoeba dispar, an absence which would be relevant to the differential virulence of these species. Here, the gene is shown to be present in E. dispar, and its sequence is presented, as well as in a virulent parasite of macaques, Entamoeba nuttalli, and the primarily free living, opportunistically parasitic Entamoeba moshkovskii.
