Abstract. Trophozoites of Entamoeba histolytica HM-1 were cultivated axenically in TYI-S medium. The amoebae were then transferred into this medium lacking serum (TYI) and inoculated into in vivo colon loops of adult Sprague-Dawley rats. The trophozoites were rapidly absorbed by the mucus, and few were found free in the luminal fluid by 1 h.

One million of axenically cultured non-erythrophagocytic E. histolytica and erythrophagocytic E. histolytica were separately spiked into 2 g of fresh semisolid faeces. Percentage viability of the trophozoites in the spiked stool sample was determined at 30 minute intervals for eight hours using the 0.4% Trypan blue exclusion method.

Feb 09, 2015 · Entamoeba histolytica: adhesins and lectins in the trophozoite surface Entamoeba histolytica is the causative agent of amebiasis in humans and is responsible for 100,000 deaths annually, making it the third leading cause of death due to a protozoan parasite.
Entamoeba histolytica – Trophozoite Habitat in human: Large intestines – colon and rectum Trophozoites detected in faecal specimens of infected human Diagnostic Features Show active amoeboid movement, when live Size: 15 – 20 µm (range 10 – 60 µm) Shape: Irregular with finger-like pseudopodia
Entamoeba histolytica is an anaerobic parasitic amoebozoan, part of the genus Entamoeba.  Predominantly infecting humans and other primates causing amoebiasis, E. histolytica is estimated to infect about 35-50 million people worldwide.  E. histolytica infection is estimated to kill more than 55,000 people each year. 
Jun 10, 2016 · Habitat: Trophozoites of E. histolytica live in the mucosal and submucosal layers of the large intestine of man . Life cycle of Entamoeba histolytica has two-stage: motile trophozoite and non-motile cyst. Trophozoites are found in intestinal lesions, extra-intestinal lesions, and diarrheal stools whereas cyst predominates in non-diarrheal stools.
Abstract. Entamoeba histolytica trophozoite cytokinesis is dependent upon cytoskeletal elements such as filamentous actin and myosin. Here we present confocal and transmission electron microscopy studies of this process. A sequence in the formation of the contractile ring was shown with rhodamine-phalloidine staining.
