The Fate of Helicobacter pylori Phagocytized by Acanthamoeba polyphaga Demonstrated by Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization and Quantitative Polymerization Chain Reaction Tests

Abstract

Helicobacter pylori able to express green fluorescent protein, as well as an ATCC strain, and a clinical isolate of this pathogen were evaluated for their ability to survive predation by Acanthamoeba polyphaga. Ingestion was evaluated by microscopic observation of the GFP-H. pylori and BacLight™-stained cells. Following phagocytosis, the fate of cells was… (More)
