Abstract
Helicobacter pylori VacA toxin contributes to the pathogenesis and severity of gastric injury. We found that incubation of AZ-521 cells with VacA resulted in phosphorylation of protein kinase B (Akt) and glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK3β) through a PI3K-dependent pathway. Following phosphorylation and inhibition of GSK3β,β-catenin was released from a GSK3β/β-catenin complex, with subsequent nuclear translocation. Methyl-β-cyclodextrin (MCD) and phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C (PI-PLC), but not 5-nitro-2-(3-phenylpropylamino)-benzoic acid (NPPB) and bafilomycin A1, inhibited VacA-induced phosphorylation of Akt, indicating that it does not require V...
