I apologize it took me a few days to respond. Between the holiday here and work, I have been very busy.
Okay, I completely understand and respect that you do not want to give me false information. I agree it won’t live in a dry environment at normal temperatures either. I just wish I had a rough idea how long it would live for in those conditions. I think that would be a great experiment for a lab to do. The public values information like that. Maybe your lab can do an experiment like that.Regarding your comment, “i dont want to give you false information. So I dont know. Nevertheless, I am pretty certain that they will not live in dry environment at normal temperature.”
Also, I was thinking about this comment you made and have a question about it.
The idea of this adhesin molecule is interesting. It seems like the stomach is also something that is constantly being “flushed” out. There is always new food/liquids that go into and out of the stomach. So, I guess from knowing that one can determine that it is not the flushing out that makes it so an adhesin molecule cannot stick to the bladder wall, it is simply not a surface that particular adhesin molecule likes, is that correct?Here you are missing an important factor. We call them the adhesin molecule. They are like hands to grab hold on something. So. H. pylori's adhesin molecule can only stick to the stomach wall. In addition, the constant going to the toilet is like constant flushing out liquid in the bladder. So, that add another challenge to all pathogen who has plan to infect the bladder. Surviving in whatever pH, with the right nutrient, and competition are three things. But the ability to stick to the wall and multiply at the very position is the main key to infection.
Thank you again for all of your time and efforts, you are the best!
