Phase variation mediated niche adaptation during prolonged experimental murine infection with Helicobacter pylori.
Changes in the repeats associated with the recently redefined repertoire of 31 phase-variable genes in Helicobacter pylori were investigated following murine gastric colonization for up to one year in three unrelated H. pylori strains. Between the beginning and end of the experimental period, changes were seen in ten genes (32 %), which would alter gene expression in one or more of the three strains studied. For those genes that showed repeat length changes at the longest time points, interme...Expand abstract
