The article discusses the research about the evolutionary history of the microbe Helicobacter pylori . Helicobacter pylori is a type of bacteria causing gastric and duodenal ulcers. According to molecular biologist Mark Achtman and his colleagues , the microbe has hitchhiked along in the gut of human beings for more than 58,000 years.

    Helicobacter pylori (Hp) injects the CagA effector protein into host epithelial cells and induces growth factor-like signaling, perturbs cell-cell junctions, and alters host cell polarity. This enables Hp to grow as microcolonies adhered to the host cell surface even in conditions that do not...
