A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The extracellular matrix (ECM) and its role in the outcome of infectious diseases have been poorly investigated. In this study, we determined the impact of the collagen fibres architecture on the invasive process of the enteric parasite Entamoeba histolytica. The behaviour of E. histolytica wild-type and silenced for the cysteine protease A5 (CP-A5) were compared on a three-dimensional collagen matrix and within human colon fragments for fibrillar collagen cleavage and migration. The interstitial collagen fibres within the connective tissue of the human colon, visualized by multiphoton and second harmonic generation signals imaging, presented a dense scaffold at the subepithelial level and a loose meshwork within the chorion. To penetrate the tissue, E. histolytica migrated on the dense scaffold that remained intact, reached the crypt of Lieberkhün, migrated along and then disorganized the loose scaffold to escape into the mucosa. Interestingly, in vitro, CP-A5 was not required for collagenase activity and migration through the matrix but was necessary within the tissue environment for collagen meshwork remodelling and subsequent invasion. The data point out that further step of invasion relay with ECM destruction that requires human components induced or activated in the presence of CP-A5.
