Suzuki RB et al. – H. pylori AGA926–928TTC 16 S rDNA gene substitutions were not found in the population. More research is required to investigate if H. pylori tetracycline resistance (TetR) has a different genetic background in the region and if the nucleotide substitutions of the uncultured H. pylori 16 S rRNA partial sequences have biological significance.
