IntroductionHelicobacter pylori was initially associated with peptic ulcer disease and is now also associated with gastric cancer. A study of H. pylori genes and antigens by Backert and Blaser identified the 128kDa CagA protein (the product of the cagA gene) as a protein associated with an increased risk of gastric cancer. During infection, CagA localizes to the host plasma membrane and undergoes tyrosine phosphorylation. Subsequently, various forms of CagA interact with more than 25 host signaling factors to promote alterations in pro-inflammatory, proliferative, cell cycle-related and anti-apoptotic genes. Changes in cell growth and epithelial integrity by CagA can trigger precancerous changes in the stomach, which is one explanation for the high incidence of gastric cancer in patients with CagA+H. Helicobacter pylori.
Product OverviewThe cagA antibody is used as Infectious Disease Antibodies.
