Background: Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is associated with the development of gastritis and peptic ulcer and is presumed to be a risk factor for low-grade B-cell lymphoma and gastric cancer. H. pylori also causes critical alterations in gastric mucin structure. Our aim was to determine the effect of H. pylori on MUC1, MUC2, and MUC5AC expression.
