A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Helicobacter pylori infection is associated with the development of gastric adenocarcinoma. Upstream stimulatory factors USF1 and USF2 regulate the transcription of genes related to immune response, cell cycle and cell proliferation. A decrease in their expression is observed in human gastric epithelial cells infected with H. pylori, associated to a lower binding to their DNA E-box recognition site as shown by electrophoretic mobility shift assay. DNA methylation leads to gene silencing. The treatment of cells with 5′-azacytidine, an inhibitor of DNA methylation, restored the USF1 and USF2 gene expression in the presence of infection. Using promoter PCR methylation assay, a DNA hypermethylation was shown in the promoter region of USF1 and USF2 genes, in infected cells. The inhibition of USF1 and USF2 expression by H. pylori and the DNA hypermethylation in their gene promoter region was confirmed in gastric tissues isolated from 12 to 18 months infected mice. Our study demonstrated the involvement of USF1 and USF2 as molecular targets of H. pylori and the key role of DNA methylation in their regulation. These mechanisms occurred in the context of metaplastic lesions, suggesting that alteration of USF1 and USF2 levels could participate in the promotion of neoplastic process during H. pylori infection.
