Protein-tyrosine phosphatase alpha, RPTP alpha, is a Helicobacter pylori VacA receptor.


Helicobacter pylori vacuolating cytotoxin, VacA, induces vacuolation, mitochondrial damage, cytochrome c release, and apoptosis of gastric epithelial cells. To detect gastric proteins that serve as VacA receptors, we used VacA co-immunoprecipitation techniques following biotinylation of the cell surface and identified p250, a receptor-like protein-tyrosine… (More)
