Figure 3

Molecular mimicry between H. pylori LPS and gastric H+,K+-ATPase. Mouse or human gastric H+,K+-ATPase (in concentrations of 2 to 10 μg per lane) were subjected to SDS-PAGE and immunoblotted with monoclonal antibodies specific for Lex (below), Ley (middle), and peptide epitopes of the β-chain (upper panel), respectively. Due to heterogeneity in glycosylation, the β-chain appears as a smear.
