Helicobacter pylori infection can cause a wide range of digestive diseases. Gene hp0788 encodes an outer membrane protein HofF, which can reduce the bacterial adherence to the GES-1 cells and affect pathogenesis of H. pylori. In this study, the role of hp0788 in H. pylori infection was further analyzed. RNA-seq data showed that two genes (hp0523 and hp0539), located on the cagPAI, were down-regulated in Δ0788 mutant. The changes were confirmed through qRT-PCR, and the expression of these two genes will be almost recovered to the normal level in complemented strain. These two genes, hp0523 and hp0539, are known to be necessary for integrated T4SS, which related to CagA translocation and IL-8 induction. In H. pylori infected assay, lower amount of phosphorylated CagA and lower induction of IL-8 were both detected in GES-1 cells infected by Δ0788 mutant, compared with the wild type strain. Meanwhile, these reductions almost recovered to the wild-type level in complemented strain. These results reveal that there is a correlation between hp0788 disruption and CagA/IL-8 decline. Deletion of CagA-encoding gene (hp0547) in Δ0788 mutant was further constructed. The double deleted mutant shows lower IL-8-inducing capability than Δ0788 mutant, indicated the correlation between deficiency of CagA and reduced IL-8 production. These results together imply that disruption of hp0788 might affect the efficiency of T4SS and CagA injection, then weaken the induction of IL-8 in infected GES-1 cells.

Gastric acid secretion is compromised in chronic Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection allowing overgrowth of non-H. pylori gastric bacteria (NHGB) in the stomach.
Helicobacter pylori colonizes the human gastric mucosa, causing chronic inflammation, peptic ulcers and gastric cancer. A cascade of harmful processes results from the interaction of these bacteria wi...
Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) infection is closely associated with the incidence of gastric cancer. However, whether H pylori eradication prevents metachronous gastric cancer remains uncertain. The a...
Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) is the main risk factor for gastric cancer (GC). In recent years, many studies have addressed the effects of H pylori itself and of H pylori-induced chronic inflammatio...
Helicobacter pylori eradication is expected to prevent gastric cancer. However, morphological alterations after eradication often hinder accurate diagnosis. Therefore, we evaluated endoscopic and hist...
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, affecting an estimated 50% of the global population, is a main cause of chronic gastritis, peptic ulcers and gastric cancer. By causing progressi...

Helicobacter pylori is closely related with gastritis, peptic ulcer, gastric cancer and gastric MALT lymphoma, and it may participate in a variety of parenteral diseases. Infection rates o...
Infections with organisms of the genus HELICOBACTER, particularly, in humans, HELICOBACTER PYLORI. The clinical manifestations are focused in the stomach, usually the gastric mucosa and antrum, and the upper duodenum. This infection plays a major role in the pathogenesis of type B gastritis and peptic ulcer disease.
A spiral bacterium active as a human gastric pathogen. It is a gram-negative, urease-positive, curved or slightly spiral organism initially isolated in 1982 from patients with lesions of gastritis or peptic ulcers in Western Australia. Helicobacter pylori was originally classified in the genus CAMPYLOBACTER, but RNA sequencing, cellular fatty acid profiles, growth patterns, and other taxonomic characteristics indicate that the micro-organism should be included in the genus HELICOBACTER. It has been officially transferred to Helicobacter gen. nov. (see Int J Syst Bacteriol 1989 Oct;39(4):297-405).
A species of gram-negative, spiral-shaped bacteria found in the gastric mucosa that is associated with chronic antral gastritis. This bacterium was first discovered in samples removed at endoscopy from patients investigated for HELICOBACTER PYLORI colonization.
Ulceration of the GASTRIC MUCOSA due to contact with GASTRIC JUICE. It is often associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI infection or consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
Ulcer that occurs in the regions of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT which come into contact with GASTRIC JUICE containing PEPSIN and GASTRIC ACID. It occurs when there are defects in the MUCOSA barrier. The common forms of peptic ulcers are associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI and the consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
