Infection with cagA‐positive Helicobacter pylori is associated with the development of gastric adenocarcinoma. The cagA gene product CagA is injected directly from the bacterium into the bacterium‐attached gastric epithelial cells via the type‐IV secretion system. Upon membrane localization and subsequent tyrosine phosphorylation by Src family kinases, CagA functions as a scaffolding adaptor and interacts with a number of host proteins that regulate cell growth, cell motility and cell polarity… Expand
Molecular anatomy and pathogenic actions of Helicobacter pylori CagA that underpin gastric carcinogenesis
TLDR
Acquisition of genetic and epigenetic alterations that compensate for CagA-directed cancer hallmarks may be required for completion of the “hit-and-run” process of gastric carcinogenesis. Expand
Anthropological and clinical implications for the structural diversity of the Helicobacter pylori CagA oncoprotein
TLDR
The pylogeographic distribution of differential CagA isoforms is discussed in the context of human migration history, which may underlie large geographical variations in the incidence of gastric cancer in different parts of the world. Expand
Structural and functional diversity in the PAR1b/MARK2‐binding region of Helicobacter pylori CagA
TLDR
It is shown that the level of PAR1b‐binding activity of CagA correlates with the magnitude of junctional defects and the degree of hummingbird phenotype induction, and structural diversity in the CM sequence is an important determinant for thedegree of virulence of CAGA, a bacterial oncoprotein associated with gastric carcinogenesis.

Novel effects of Helicobacter pylori CagA on key genes of gastric cancer signal transduction: a comparative transfection study.
TLDR
The result proposed that the ABCCC type can induce the intestinal metaplasia, IL-8, perturbation of Crk adaptor proteins, anti-apoptotic effect and carcinogenic effect more significantly than ABC type is supported. Expand
Integrin but not CEACAM receptors are dispensable for Helicobacter pylori CagA translocation
TLDR
Genetic evidence is provided that the cag-T4SS-mediated interaction of Hp with cell surface integrins on human gastric epithelial cells is not essential for CagA translocation, but interaction ofHp with CEACAM receptors is facilitating Cag a translocation by the cAG-T 4SS of this important microbe. Expand
Structural characterization of Cag proteins from the Pathogenicity Island of Helicobacter pylori
TLDR
The three-dimensional structure of some of the proteins encoded by the cag-PAI are determined, a task that will allow to elucidate the function and the organization of the entire T4SS of such a relevant pathogenic bacterium. Expand
Systematic site-directed mutagenesis of the Helicobacter pylori CagL protein of the Cag type IV secretion system identifies novel functional domains
TLDR
Characterizing the CagL mutants, it is determined that their function to activate cells and transport the effector CagA was reduced to different extents and their structure-function correlation can be instructive for the functional characterization of other potential VirB5 orthologs whose structure is not yet known. Expand
Variations in the multimerization region of the Helicobacter pylori cytotoxin CagA affect virulence.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, following 18 h, the CagA-THE AUTHORS-transfected cells were less adherent compared with the CAgA-WW transfecting cells, which suggest that different CM motif types may affect CAGA virulence. Expand
CagA protein of Helicobacter pylori: a hijacker of gastric epithelial cell signaling.
TLDR
A novel source of ROS production is proposed in this review of the product of cytotoxin-associated gene A (CagA), one of the important virulence factors of H. pylori, which itself can induce ROS production in gastric epithelial cell. Expand
Helicobacter Pylori Cytotoxin-Associated Gene A (CagA) and Gastric Carcinoma
TLDR
This review highlights how the upregulation of cagA gene could be a risk factor for developing gastric carcinoma and its potential relationship on the selection of patients who would benefit from H. Pylori treatment. Expand

Attenuation of Helicobacter pylori CagA·SHP-2 Signaling by Interaction between CagA and C-terminal Src Kinase*
TLDR
The results thus indicate that CagA-Csk interaction prevents excess cell damage caused by deregulated activation of SHP-2, and down-regulates CAGA·SHP- 2 signaling by both competitively inhibiting Cag a·SHp-2 complex formation and reducing levels of Cag A phosphorylation. Expand
c‐Src/Lyn kinases activate Helicobacter pylori CagA through tyrosine phosphorylation of the EPIYA motifs
TLDR
CagA translocation followed by tyrosine phosphorylation at the EPIYA motifs promotes a growth factor‐like response with intense cytoskeletal rearrangements, cell elongation effects and increased cellular motility. Expand
Helicobacter pylori CagA Induces Ras-independent Morphogenetic Response through SHP-2 Recruitment and Activation*
TLDR
Results indicate that SHP-2 is involved in the Ras-independent modification of Erk signals that is necessary for the morphogenetic activity of CagA, and suggests a key role of SHp-2 in the pathological activity of H. pylori virulence factor Cag a. Expand
Functional antagonism between Helicobacter pylori CagA and vacuolating toxin VacA in control of the NFAT signaling pathway in gastric epithelial cells.
TLDR
These findings indicate that the two major H. pylori virulence factors inversely control NFAT activity, and deregulation of NFAT, either positively or negatively, depending on the relative exposure of cells to CagA and VacA, may contribute to the various disease outcomes caused by H.pylori infection. Expand
Tyrosine phosphorylation of the Helicobacter pylori CagA antigen after cag-driven host cell translocation.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CagA, a virulence factor commonly expressed in peptic ulcer disease and thought to be an orphan of a specific biological function, is delivered into the epithelial cells by the cag type IV secretion system where it is phosphorylated on tyrosine residues by an as yet unidentified host cell kinase and wired to eukaryotic signal transduction pathways and cytoskeletal plasticity. Expand
EPIYA Motif Is a Membrane-targeting Signal of Helicobacter pylori Virulence Factor CagA in Mammalian Cells*
TLDR
The results indicate that the EPIYA motif has a dual function in membrane association and tyrosine phosphorylation, both of which are critically involved in the activity of CagA to deregulate intracellular signaling, and suggest that the H. pylori strains carrying the cagA gene are more virulent than cagC-negative strains and are associated with the development of gastric adenocarcinoma. Expand
Translocation of the Helicobacter pylori CagA protein in gastric epithelial cells by a type IV secretion apparatus
TLDR
Evidence that the H. pylori protein encoded by the cytotoxin‐associated gene A (cagA) is translocated and phosphorylated in infected epithelial cells supports the view that H.pylori actively translocates virulence determinants, including CagA, which could be involved in the development of a variety of gastric disease. Expand
Helicobacter pylori CagA protein activates serum response element-driven transcription independently of tyrosine phosphorylation.
TLDR
The C-terminal portion of CagA enhances SRE-driven transcription by activating an upstream signaling cascade without requiring CAGA Tyr phosphorylation, suggesting that translocated Cag a regulates 2 distinct cellular responses: phosphorylated-dependent cytoskeletal rearrangement and phosphorylations-independent transcriptional activation. Expand
SHP-2 Tyrosine Phosphatase as an Intracellular Target of Helicobacter pylori CagA Protein
TLDR
Wild-type but not phosphorylation-resistant CagA induced a growth factor–like response in gastric epithelial cells and formed a physical complex with the SRC homology 2 domain (SH2)–containing tyrosine phosphatase SHP-2 in a phosphorylations-dependent manner and stimulated the phosphat enzyme activity. Expand
Biological activity of the Helicobacter pylori virulence factor CagA is determined by variation in the tyrosine phosphorylation sites
TLDR
The results indicate that the potential of individual CagA to perturb host-cell functions is determined by the degree of SHP-2 binding activity, which depends in turn on the number and sequences of tyrosine phosphorylation sites. Expand
