Lineage: Eukaryota[2418]; Amoebozoa[39]; Discosea[17]; Longamoebia[16]; Centramoebida[16]; Acanthamoebidae[15]; Acanthamoeba[15]; Acanthamoeba castellanii[1]
Acanthamoeba castellanii is a free-living amoeba commonly isolated from terrestrial and aquatic environments. This organism is one of the very few well-studied members of the free-living amoebae. It has the capacity to form a thick-walled cyst which is resistant to adverse environmental conditions. A. castellanii is an opportunistic pathogen More...
