OBJECTIVE Secreted proteins of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) interact with gastric epithelium cells and may contribute to cell damage. Considering the fact that HP0175 and hypothetical conserved protein HP1286 are included in the group and that HP0175 is a well-known apoptosis-induced factor, the present study aims to clarify whether HP1286 plays a role in bacterial pathogenicity or even functions as an apoptosis-induced factor in human stomach. METHODS Two genes encoding HP1286 and HP0175… CONTINUE READING
