Effects of Helicobacter pylori and Heat Shock Protein 70 on the Proliferation of Human Gastric Epithelial Cells
Proliferation of HSP70-silenced AGS line exposed to H. pylori. The HSP70-silenced AGS line (siHSP70-stably transfected-AGS cells) and control cells (siControl-stably transfected-AGS cells) were cocultured with H. pylori (bacteria : epithelial cell ratio 200 : 1) for the indicated times. Then, cell proliferation was detected by an MTT assay as described above. The results were expressed as absorbance. The data was shown as (, when compared with the control group).
