Cytotoxic effect of Acanthamoeba trophozoites on human melanoma cells


Cytotoxic effect of Acanthamoeba trophozoites on human melanoma cells



Acta Parasitologica et Medica Entomologica Sinica 9(1): 7-11, (1 plate)



ISSN/ISBN: 1005-0507

The aim of this study was to evaluate the cytotoxic effect (CTE) of different species of Acanthamoeba trophozoites on human melanoma B16 cells and to analyse the relation between the cytotoxic effect and Acanthamoeba spp. pathogenicity. B16 cells were co-incubated with five isolates of Acanthamoeba trophozoites (A. lugdunensis, A. quina, A. palestinensis, A. quina-A. lugdunensis, A. polyphaga).
