Helicobacter pylori may cause chronic gastritis, even gastric cancer, however, antigen-presenting cells (APCs) are most important immune cells involved in the induction and expression of the underlying inflammatory responses to resist H. pylori. To study the interaction of HSPs in dendritic cells (DCs), macrophages and RGM-1 cells infected with H. pylori, HSP-27, HSP-60, HSP-70 and HSP-90 proteins were analyzed in the mucosa tissue or serum of gastritis patients caused by H. pylori, and in cell supernatant of DCs, macrophages, RGM-1 infected by H. pylori, or in above host cells. We found that HSP-27, HSP-60, HSP-70 and HSP-90 decreased in gastric epithelial cells, but increased significantly in DCs, macrophages. Meanwhile, inflammation associated proteins iNOS-2 and COX-2 were participated in the expression of HSPs in the process of host cells defensing against H. pylori infection. These findings contribute to understand the functions of HSP-27, HSP-60, HSP-70 and HSP-90 in H. pylori infection APCs and gastric epithelial cells indicating that HSPs would be diagnostic markers for H. pylori infection.
