- The mannose cap of mycobacterial lipoarabinomannan does not dominate the Mycobacterium-host interactionB J Appelmelk
Department of Medical Microbiology and Infection Control, VU University Medical Center, 1081 BT Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Cell Microbiol 10:930-44. 2008..bovis BCG did not survive less well in lung, spleen or liver and induced a similar cytokine profile. Our data contradict the current paradigm and demonstrate that mannose-capped LAM does not dominate the Mycobacterium-host interaction...
- Phase variation in Helicobacter pylori lipopolysaccharide due to changes in the lengths of poly(C) tracts in alpha3-fucosyltransferase genesB J Appelmelk
Departments of Medical Microbiology, Vrije Universiteit, Medical School, 1081 BT Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Infect Immun 67:5361-6. 1999..Finally, the data provide an understanding at the molecular level of the mechanisms underlying LPS diversity in H. pylori, which may play an important role in adaptation to the host...
- Phase variation in H type I and Lewis a epitopes of Helicobacter pylori lipopolysaccharideB J Appelmelk
Department of Medical Microbiology, Vrije Universiteit, Medical School, 1081 BT Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Infect Immun 68:5928-32. 2000..Our data provide understanding at the molecular level of how H. pylori is able to diversify in the host, a requirement likely essential for successful colonization and transmission...
- Identification by Tn10 transposon mutagenesis of host factors involved in the biosynthesis of K99 fimbriae of Escherichia coli: effect of LPS core mutationsE Pilipcinec
Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Veterinary Medicine, Kosice, Slovak Republic
FEMS Microbiol Lett 123:201-6. 1994..Preliminary experiments indicated that K99 major subunits, in contrast to K88 subunits, strongly bind LPS molecules...
- Antigastric autoantibodies in ferrets naturally infected with Helicobacter mustelaeT O Cróinín
The Children s Research Centre, Our Lady s Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin, Ireland
Infect Immun 69:2708-13. 2001..In conclusion, ferrets naturally infected with H. mustelae generate antibodies that react with parietal cells, but these autoantibodies are not due to molecular mimicry...
