  • a Reprinted from reference74 with permission of the publisher.

  • b Summary of the cysteine proteinase genes, mRNAs, and protein products of E. histolytica and E. dispar.

  • c The different nomenclature for the gene products by Reed et al. (84) and Bruchhaus et al. (11) is listed in the first two columns.

  • d Expression of the gene products is noted by mRNA, with question marks (?) for conflicting data.

  • e The percent identity of the deduced amino acid sequence of the cysteine proteinases is presented in more detail in reference 11.

  • f ND, not determined.
