Adam Sateriale, CMB graduate student in Dr. Chris Huston‘s lab, published his paper, “Feed-Forward Regulation of Phagocytosis by Entamoeba histolytica” in Infection and Immunity. The publication is part of their December 2012 issue.
“Entamoeba histolytica is a protozoan parasite that causes amebic dysentery, yet only 10% of cases result in invasive infections. Using microarray analysis we have identified a pattern of gene regulation that leads to increased Entamoeba histolytica phagocytosis which is strongly correlated with virulence in humans.” Mr. Sateriale said about his research.
Congratulations on your publication!
