Expression of the Helicobacter pylori CagA Protein Disrupts Drosophila Eye Development.

Pseudo-colored scanning electron micrograph of the eye of a transgenic Drosophila expressing CagA. The normal crystalline array of facets in the eye is disrupted (see Botham et al., doi:10.1371/journal.ppat.1000064).
