Amoebapore A is a pore-forming protein produced by the pathogenic parasite Entamoeba histolytica, which causes human amoebic dysentery. The pore-forming activity of amoebapore A is regulated by pH-dependent dimerization, a prerequisite for membrane insertion and pore formation. Understanding of these important processes has been hampered by the cytotoxicity of amoebapore A, which prevents the production of this protein in cell-based expression systems. In this study, a protocol for the...[Show more]
