Entamoeba histolytica and E. dispar Calreticulin: Inhibition of Classical Complement Pathway and Differences in the Level of Expression in Amoebic Liver Abscess

Figure 9

Relative quantification (RQ) of expression of mRNA for EhCRT and EdCRT. Reverse transcription real-time PCR was used to independently measure mRNA expression of EdCRT and EhCRT in trophozoites present in tissue sections of liver in hamsters after different times of postinoculation. The values represent the mean of three independent experiments. Differences between E. histolytica and E. dispar were compared through Student’s -test detecting statistical significance .
