Helicobacter pylori expresses a variety of known virulence-associated factors, whose expression is likely to be dependent on the ecological niche of this pathogen. Here, we compared the temporal changes in the level of virulence-associated gene transcription in H. pylori strains isolated from patients with different pathology. Our aim was to study the coordinated gene expression profiles of these virulence factors during infection of AGS gastric epithelial cells and granulocytes. Using real… CONTINUE READING
