  1. Entamoeba coli is a non-pathogenic species of Entamoeba that frequently exists as a commensal parasite in the human gastrointestinal tract. E. coli (not to be confused with the bacterium Escherichia coli) is important in medicine because it can be confused during microscopic examination of stained stool specimens with the pathogenic Entamoeba histolytica.

  2. Entamoeba coli . E. coli cysts in concentrated wet mounts. Cysts of Entamoeba coli are usually spherical but may be elongated and measure 10–35 µm. Mature cysts typically have 8 nuclei but may have as many as 16 or more. Entamoeba coli is the only Entamoeba species found in humans that has more than four nuclei in the cyst stage. The nuclei ...

    The genus Entamoeba was defined by Casagrandi and Barbagallo for the species Entamoeba coli, which is known to be a commensal organism. Lösch's organism was renamed Entamoeba histolytica by Fritz Schaudinn in 1903; he later died, in 1906, from a self-inflicted infection when studying this amoeba.

  4. Jan 15, 2018 · The largest parasitic protozoan in humans is Balantidium coli. Similarities Between Cyst and Trophozoite. Cyst and trophozoite are two stages of the lifecycle of protozoans. Both cyst and trophozoite are unicellular. Both cyst and trophozoite consist of visible nuclei. Both cyst and trophozoite contain contractile vacuoles.

  5. Jun 10, 2016 · Cyst size and the number of its nuclei. Mature cysts of E. histolytica are smaller than those of Entamoeba coli and contain four nuclei, whereas E. coli cysts have eight nuclei. B. Antigen detection: detection of E.histolytica antigen in the stool. C. Serologic testing is useful for the diagnosis of invasive amebiasis.

  6. Pathogenic Entamoeba species must be differentiated from other intestinal protozoa such as the nonpathogenic amebae (Entamoeba coli, E. hartmanni, E. gingivalis, Endolimax nana, Iodamoeba buetschlii) and the flagellate Dientamoeba fragilis. Morphologic differentiation among these is possible, but potentially complicated, based on morphologic ...

  7. E. histolytica exists in two forms, the hardy cyst (infective form) characterized by four nuclei, and the trophozoite (responsible for invasive disease), which has a single nucleus and survives poorly outside the human body.E. histolytica infection is acquired by ingestion of cysts in contaminated water or food or by fecal-oral contact ...
