    Introduction: H pylori strains possessing the cag Pathogenicity Island (cag Pal) or expressing active vacuolating cytotoxin (vacA) are associated with increased risk of peptic ulceration and gastric adenocarcnoma. Most strains have both or neither of these virulence factors. This is unlikely to...

    Abstract: We analyzed cagA genes from Helicobacter pylori strains isolated from Japanese and non-Japanese individuals for differences that could be associated with variations in virulence. The cagA genes from Japanese isolates (n = 12) and non-Japanese American Type Culture Collection (ATCC)...

    This review focuses on the main virulence factors characterizing Helicobacter pylori strains. Several pathogenic factors are important for the establishment and maintenance of H. pylori infection. Among those present in all isolates are the production of urease and phospholipases, the presence...

    Background: It is generally recognized the role of Helicobacter pylori in the pathogenesis of peptic ulcer disease in adults and children. Some cases raise serious concern regarding the therapeutic approach because they do not heal with normal treatment schemes or have frequent relapses due to...

    Few virulence determinants of Helicobacter pylori have been tested in vivo. We conducted this study to establish an animal model for their screening. Six-week-old male Mongolian gerbils were inoculated with wild-type H. pylori (TN2) or its isogenic mutant with deletion of cagE (TN2DcagE), ...

    VacA, a major virulence factor of H. pylori, forms anion-selective pores within membranes, causes profound vacuolation of epithelial cells, reduces trans-epithelial resistance, and plays a role in apoptosis. Although it is clear that VacA is localised to rab7-positive vacuoles, little is known...

    Objective: CagA is regarded as virulence-associated marker of Helicobacter pylori. However, patients colonized with CagA positive strains do not ultimately express virulence. H. pylori phospholipase A (PLA) activity results in degradation of bacterial membrane phospholipids (PE) to...

    Purpose: The H. pylori cagA gene, vacA gene and iceA gene are considered to be important virurence factors that have been implicated in the development of gastric adenocarcinoma. It was reported that the presence of IS605 elements may be responsible for rearrangements and lead to partial or...
