Helicobacter pylori is known to transform to coccoid forms which might be involved in faecal-oral transmission. When the bacteria enter the intestine, they encounter anaerobiosis that is unfavourable for growth. The effect of anaerobiosis was investigated to determine whether H. pylori is viable under such conditions. H. pylori in the late logarithmic growth phase transformed from spiral to coccoid forms when transferred to and incubated anaerobically in fresh medium. Acridine orange staining… CONTINUE READING
