82207-2Entamoeba histolytica DNA [Presence] in Stool by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Term Description

Qualitative detection of nucleic acid sequences in the Entamoeba histolytica DNA in stool specimens by PCR and non-probe detection methods, such as melt curve analysis. This term was created for, but not limited in use to, the submitter's test kit, FilmArray Gastrointestinal Panel (GI) v2.1.

Part Descriptions

LP16698-0   Entamoeba histolytica
Entamoeba histolytica is an anaerobic parasitic eukaryote protozoan, part of the genus Entamoeba. It infects predominantly humans and other primates. Diverse mammals such as dogs and cats can become infected but usually do not shed cysts (the environmental survival form of the organism) with their feces, thus do not contribute significantly to transmission. The active (trophozoite) stage exists only in the host and in fresh feces; cysts survive outside the host in water and soils and on foods, especially under moist conditions on the latter. When swallowed they cause infections by excysting (to the trophozoite stage) in the digestive tract. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP16698-0   Entamoeba histolytica
A species of parasitic protozoa causing ENTAMOEBIASIS and amebic dysentery (DYSENTERY, AMEBIC). Characteristics include a single nucleus containing a small central karyosome and peripheral chromatin that is finely and regularly beaded. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

LP21259-4   Entamoeba
A genus of ameboid protozoa characterized by the presence of beaded chromatin on the inner surface of the nuclear membrane. Its organisms are parasitic in invertebrates and vertebrates, including humans. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006
