Abstract

To evaluate genetic variability among Entamoeba histolytica strains, we sequenced 9,077 bp from each of 14 isolates. The polymorphism rates from coding and noncoding regions were significantly different (0.07% and 0.37%, respectively), indicating that these regions are subject to different selection pressures. Additionally, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) potentially associated with specific clinical outcomes were identified.
