3 newly discovered ERK pathway proteins related to CagA induced disease

Cytotoxin-associated gene A protein (CagA) from type I H.pylori has been proved by epidemiological and experimental studies to be closely associated with the H.pylori induced gastric diseases, especially gastric cancer. However, the precise role of CagA in cell function after H. pylori infection r...
