Two antioxidative lactobacilli strains as promising probiotics.
Two antioxidative strains tentatively identified as Lactobacillus fermentum, E-3 and E-18, were isolated from intestinal microflora of a healthy child. Survival time of these strains in the presenceExpand

Antibodies induced by ganglioside-mimicking Campylobacter jejuni lipooligosaccharides recognise epitopes at the nodes of Ranvier
Molecular mimicry of gangliosides by Campylobacter jejuni lipooligosaccharides (LOSs) in the induction of anti-ganglioside antibodies has been hypothesised to contribute to GBS development. RabbitsExpand

An enzymatic ruler modulates Lewis antigen glycosylation of Helicobacter pylori LPS during persistent infection.
Helicobacter pylori persistently colonizes about half the human population and contributes to the development of peptic ulcer disease and gastric cancer. This organism has evolved means toExpand

Variations in Helicobacter pylori Lipopolysaccharide To Evade the Innate Immune Component Surfactant Protein D
ABSTRACT Helicobacter pylori is a common and persistent human pathogen of the gastric mucosa. Surfactant protein D (SP-D), a component of innate immunity, is expressed in the human gastric mucosa andExpand

Lewis Epitopes on Outer Membrane Vesicles of Relevance to Helicobacter pylori Pathogenesis
Background.  Helicobacter pylori extrudes protein‐ and lipopolysaccharide‐enriched outer membrane vesicles from its cell surface which have been postulated to act to deliver virulence factors to theExpand
