Neutrophils express an enzyme, MPO, which produces the hypochlorous anion (OCl−), a potent oxidant, generated from H2O2 in the presence of Cl−. This hypochlorous anion reacts with ammonia, produced from urea by H. 1). In addition, H. 4 H. pylori GGT catalyzes the transpeptidation and hydrolysis of the γ-glutamyl groups of glutamine and glutathione. Interestingly, these findings indicate that H. pylori GGT performs two functions. First, GGT plays a role in the physiological functioning of H. pylori, which is unable to take up extracellular glutamine and glutathione directly, by hydrolyzing these substances to glutamate.
