Figure 3

Cellular responses to CagA activation. Isolated cells forming the structure of an epithelium are represented during contacts with type I strains of Helicobacter pylori (defined as positive for expression, translocation, and activation of CagA). Two predominant classes of signals are indicated: signals for inflammation and signals for autocrine stimulation and cell cycle control.
