ABSTRACT In order to identify the proteins associated with Helicobacter pylori colonization in mice, we used 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) to analyze the membrane- and soluble-cellular proteins extracted from H. pylori strain 26695 and the mouse-passaged homolog 88-3887. We defined 2- and 3-fold changes in protein expression as the threshold values for differential expression in the membrane-protein and whole-cell-protein fractions, respectively. The differentially expressed proteins were identified by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF/TOF). A total of 29 proteins, including 16 membrane- or membrane-associated proteins (13 upregulated, 3 downregulated) and 13 cellular proteins (10 upregulated, 3 downregulated) were differentially expressed between the strains 26695 and 88-3887. Among the upregulated proteins, 10 proteins had been previously shown to be associated with the mouse colonization, and 13 upregulated proteins were shown to be associated with the adaptation of H. pylori in murine hosts for the first time in this study. The identified proteins were classified as proteins related to metabolism, stress response, virulence, or adhesion. The data presented in this report indicated that there were subsets of upregulated proteins in mouse-adapted H. pylori. In particular, the adhesins, virulence factors, and stress-response proteins are likely to contribute to colonization in mice.

    ABSTRACT: Helicobacter pylori can persist in the stomach of infected individuals for life, in the face of chronic inflammation and low pH. Efforts to develop vaccines have largely failed and, in the wake of emerging antibiotic resistance, novel therapeutic approaches must be considered. This review will discuss recent salient findings of host factors that modulate inflammatory responses to H. pylori with the aim of harnessing this knowledge for developing novel therapeutics. In addition, new approaches to vaccine development will be reviewed. Ultimately, the development of efficacious therapeutic interventions will likely need to consider host-pathogen interactions to enhance host immunity and circumvent bacterial evasion strategies.

    ABSTRACT: Comparative proteomics of the multiple strains within the same species can reveal the genetic variation and relationships among strains without the need to assess the genomic data. Similar to comparative genomics, core proteome and pan proteome can also be obtained within multiple strains under the same culture conditions. In this study we present the core proteome and pan proteome of four epidemic Salmonella Paratyphi A strains cultured under laboratory culture conditions. The proteomic information was obtained using a Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) technique. The expression profiles of these strains were conservative, similar to the monomorphic genome of S. Paratyphi A. Few strain-specific proteins were found in these strains. Interestingly, non-core proteins were found in similar categories as core proteins. However, significant fluctuations in the abundance of some core proteins were also observed, suggesting that there is elaborate regulation of core proteins in the different strains even when they are cultured in the same environment. Therefore, core proteome and pan proteome analysis of the multiple strains can demonstrate the core pathways of metabolism of the species under specific culture conditions, and further the specific responses and adaptations of the strains to the growth environment.
