BACKGROUND Helicobacter suis strain TKY infection has been strongly associated with the development of gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma in a C57BL/6J mouse model. MATERIALS AND METHODS 1. C57BL/6J mice were intragastrically administered Lactobacillus strains once daily with 10(8)-10(9) colony-forming units (CFU), starting 2 days(More)
Non-Helicobacter pylori-Helicobacters including H. suis, H. heilmanniisensu stricto and H. felis comprise a group of bacteria that may inhabit the stomach of humans and animals. Human gastric infection has been associated with gastritis, ulcer, MALT lymphoma and cancer. Although the fastidious nature of these organisms has hampered their research, recent(More)
Systems biology approaches to study metabolic switching in Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2) depend on cultivation conditions ensuring high reproducibility and distinct phases of culture growth and secondary metabolite production. In addition, biomass concentrations must be sufficiently high to allow for extensive time-series sampling before occurrence of a(More)
We aimed to identify narrow-spectrum natural compounds that specifically inhibit an alternative menaquinone (MK; vitamin K2) biosynthetic pathway (the futalosine pathway) of Helicobacter pylori. Culture broth samples of 6183 microbes were examined using the paper disc method with different combinations of 2 of the following 3 indicator microorganisms:(More)
The Streptococcus dysgalactiae subspecies equisimilis (SDSE) possesses clinical similarities to group A streptococcus (GAS) and has recently been recognized as a causative pathogen of life-threatening streptococcal infections. Human membrane cofactor protein (CD46), a complement regulatory protein ubiquitously expressed on every cell type except for(More)
We present here the draft whole-genome shotgun sequence of an uncultivated strain SNTW101 of Helicobacter suis, which has been maintained in the stomachs of mice. This strain was originally isolated from gastric biopsy specimens of a urea breath test-negative Japanese patient suffering from nodular gastritis.
Human CD46 is a receptor for the M protein of group A streptococcus (GAS). The emm1 GAS strain GAS472 was isolated from a patient suffering from streptococcal toxic shock-like syndrome. Human CD46-expressing transgenic (Tg) mice developed necrotizing fasciitis associated with osteoclast-mediated progressive and severe bone destruction in the hind paws 3(More)
BACKGROUND Non-Helicobacter pylori-helicobacters (NHPH) compose a group of gram negative zoonotic bacteria that may induce in humans gastric diseases including gastritis, gastroduodenal ulcer and MALT lymphoma. Their prevalence in the general population has previously been reported to 0.1-6.2%, although such reports still remain less in number. AIMS This(More)
Helicobacter suis is the second most prevalent Helicobacter species in the stomach of humans suffering from gastric disease. This bacterium mainly inhabits the stomach of domesticated pigs, in which it causes gastric disease, but it appears to be absent in wild boars. Interestingly, it also colonizes the stomach of asymptomatic rhesus and cynomolgus(More)
Backgound: The role of enteric nerves has previously been demonstrated in the formation of several gastric diseases. In the present review, the significance of the cholinergic nerves in stress-induced ulcer formation as well as the importance of substance P in the formation of gastric MALT lymphoma is discussed. METHODS The stress-induced ulcer was(More)
