Entamoeba gingivalis is a protozoan that resides in the oral cavity. Using molecular biology techniques, we identified a novel organism that. The protozoan Entamoeba gingivalis resides in the oral cavity and is frequently observed in the periodontal pockets of humans and pets. The amoeba Entamoeba gingivalis is the most common micro-organism found in all cases of periodontal diseases. It’s presence is easy to confirm by using a.

Though the nuclei of these amoebae are very similar in appearance, subtle differences may be apparent: New insights into the phylogeny of Entamoeba species provided by analyses of four new small-subunit rRNA genes.

Bacteria are a minor source of nourishment. Entamoeba gingivalis is able to fingivalis one or more human cells at the time by a yet-undescribed mechanism Figure 1. Received Nov 10; Accepted Jan This would help explain the historical relationship between arthritis and periodontal diseases and a vogue for treating arthritis with anti protozoal drugs. For the BA reconstruction, MrBayes version 3.

A new subtype of Entamoeba gingivalis: “E. gingivalis ST2, kamaktli variant”

Maximum similarity analysis The Needleman-Wunsch algorithm was used to align the identified sequences; this algorithm determines the best possible alignment to obtain the maximum similarity between two molecular sequences Needleman and Wunsch Beside changes in its composition, the bacterial community can harbor changes in its functions, generating a new equilibrium dysbiosis that is possible in the new dental plaque environment Hajishengallis and Lamont, Left untreated, gingivitis evolves to periodontitis, which is characterized by an inflammatory infiltrate composed of plasma cells, and by degradation of collagen fibers, loss of connective tissue, and bone destruction in an anaerobic environment Mettraux et al.

This medium allows the lysis of the sample and its conservation at room temperature. Pro-resolving mediators in the regulation of periodontal disease. Related articles Entamoeba gingivalis periodontal disease southern Iran Trichomonas tenax. Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology, The trophozoite feeds on bacteria and divides by simple binary fission to form two small daughter cells. Two mechanisms of cell killing and uptake have been discovered for E.


Thus, we propose the identification of a new E. Together, these results strongly suggest that kamaktli variant differs from the strains belonging to ribodeme-1 or ribodeme The parasite of oral Endamebiasis, Endameba gingivalis Gros.

Entirely eliminating the parasite Entamoeba gingivalis and pathogenic bacteria leads to rapid and steady recovery of chronic and aggressive periodontitis including stopping the bleeding, eliminating bad breath and closing the infected periodontal pockets: While the dental plaque stacks, mineralization leads to formation of tartar deposits, which can cause injury, as well as overhanging restorations or repetitive wounding.

The main activity of the amoeba Entamoeba gingivalis in the infected periodontal crevices, besides moving, consists in feeding on the nucleus of white blood cells. No curettes which would remove cement needed for re-attachment. Studies on the ingestion of leucocytes and on mitosis in Endamoeba gingivalis.

Articles with ‘species’ microformats All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from October Articles containing video clips.

Signs and symptoms, associated with an infection of the oral cavity by Entamoeba Gingivalis, frequently included apparent difficulty in maintaining a clean mouth, with heavy plaque formation which rapidly regenerated after brushing, or other plaque control procedures; an unpleasant taste, an awareness of the gums, which bleed easily; ulcerations; halitosis pungently reminiscent of garlic sore, dry or itchy eyes and a history of generalised malaisefatigue and frequent headache.

Amoebae were detected by their producing one lobose pseudopodium at a time, with dark intracellular vacuoles and one nucleus containing a central karyosome and peripheral chromatin Supplemental Fig. Additionally, the authors reported some single nucleotide polymorphism SNP changes in the sequences of one of their E.

The prevalence of periodontitis is constant among the defined World Health Organization WHO regions, with around one person out of two between 35 and giingivalis years old Petersen and Ogawa, View at Google Scholar W.

Bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract can be beneficial: The prevalence of Entamoeba gingivalis and Trichomonas tenax in periodontal disease.


The parasite moves by forming ectoplasmic pseudopodia. Dysbiosis in chronic periodontitis: This might indicate that it’s habitat is the mouth and related structures in the respiratory tree. The host takes part in fueling progression to disease by inflammation and active mediators of inflammation resolution improve the disease’s outcome Lee et al. This intra- and inter-species communication leads to coordination of activities and increases the chances of genetic material transfer.

This improvement is usually maintained unless the patient becomes re-infected. Entamoeba histolytica Amoebiasis Amoebic dysentery Amoebic liver abscess Cutaneous amoebiasis Amoebic brain abscess Amebiasis cutis Entamoeba gingivalis. As seen in our case, colonies morphologically resembling Actinomyces are often associated with E. Correlation of some oral hygiene variable with age, sex and incidence of oral protozoa.

Further studies are needed to decipher the ecosystem of the different stages of the periodontal pockets, assigning roles for all of the detected biological entities, which can be opportunistic, neutral, pathogenic, or mutualistic with the organisms within the pocket, and which can have the same type of interactions with the host tissues.
