Helicobacter pylori SabA adhesin evokes a strong inflammatory response in human neutrophils which is down-regulated by the neutrophil-activating protein


The human pathogen Helicobacter pylori expresses two dominant adhesins; the Lewis b blood group antigen binding adhesin, BabA, and the sialic acid-binding adhesin, SabA. These adhesins recognize specific carbohydrate moieties of the gastric epithelium, i.e. the Lewis b antigen, Leb, and the sialyl-Lewis x antigen, sLex, respectively, which promote infection… (More)
