The human gastric pathogen Helicobacter pylori is able to establish an infection in a hostile environment with virtually no competitors. For this purpose, it has elaborated a set of colonization factors which facilitate both survival under acid exposure, motility and orientation in a highly viscous mucus layer, and adherence to epithelial surfaces. A more intimate interaction with gastric epithelia provides the basis to influence gene expression profiles as well as morphological transitions via… CONTINUE READING
