Dynamic Reciprocity in Expression of Fucosylated and Sialylated Antigens in Gastric Mucosa during H. pylori Infection
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
Leb expression in monkey 8PZ at pre-inoculation (A), 1 week post-inoculation (B), and 2 months post inoculation (C). Thus, gastric mucosal fucosylation was initially strong (A), decreased from 1 to 4 weeks post-inoculation (B), returned to basal level at 2 months (C), and stayed at basal level until 10 months (not shown). The figure also illustrates the expression of sialyl-Lea (D, E, and F) and sialyl-Lex (G, H, and I) in monkey 8PZ at pre-inoculation (D and G), 2 months (E and H), and 10 months post-inoculation (F and I). Thus, gastric mucosal sialylation increased during early infection (not shown), peaked at 2 months (E and H), and returned to pre-inoculation levels at 10 months post-inoculation (F and I).
