Sugar Molecule Helps Stomach Cells to Differentiate Between Good and Bad Bugs

Human gastric epithelial cells with disc-shaped nuclei (blue) infected by Helicobacter pylori (green bacteria). TIFAsomes (red strings) formed upon injection of a small sugar molecule (HBP) by H. pylori into the host cells to cause translocation of the pro-inflammatory NF-kB transcription factor (diffused green) into the nuclei, as visualized in the right-side micrograph channel. Whitish/gray staining represents microtubule network of human cells (left panel). © MPI f. Infection Biology/ L. Pfannkuch
