Host induced microevolution of ESX secretion systems of M. Tuberculosis.
The ESX family of genes (esxA-W) in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) encodes 23 effector molecules influencing immunogenicity and pathogenicity. This study was aimed at identifying and evaluating variations in ESX sequence ...
Evaluation of the MTT and MABA assays for rapid screening of the in vitro activity of synthetic chalcones against Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Background: The chalcone scaffold (1,3-diaryl-2-propen-i-ones) has the advantage of easy chemical modification and has been shown to possess biological activity against a variety of organisms, including a wide range of ...
The isolation of antibiotic survivors in mycobacterium tuberculosis using fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS).
Abstract available in PDF file.
TylA has an essential virulence role in mycobacterium tuberculosis pathogenesis.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb), the causative agent of the disease tuberculosis, is an ancient pathogen and a major cause of death worldwide. Although various virulence factors of M.tb have been identified, its pathogenesis ...
Microfluidic technologies for genomic interrogation of mycobacterium tuberculosis clinical isolates using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and high resolution melting analysis (HRMA).
Background: A number of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) genes have been shown to be under positive selection pressure in the presence of anti-TB therapy. This results in the selection of drug resistant phenotypes associated ...
Antibiotic resistance in mycobacterium tuberculosis : the role of genetic mutations in resistance conferring genes and efflux transporters.
Two decades after the World Health Organisation (WHO) declaration of tuberculosis (TB) as a global emergency, the disease remains a public health crisis of epic proportions. The emergence of drug resistant strains of ...
Fitness of multi-and extensively drug-resistant mycobacterium tuberculosis clinical strains.
The biological fitness of a pathogen is defined as its ability to reproduce, survive, cause disease and be transmitted. Drug-resistant M. tuberculosis isolates often exhibit reduced competitive ability against susceptible ...
Development of novel reagents for tuberculosis detection.
Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the most prevalent infectious diseases worldwide and causes high morbidity and mortality, despite the widespread availability of effective antibiotics against most strains of Mycobacterium ...
Matrix assisted laser desorption/ionisation time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) proteomic profiling of mycobacteria.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis still remains a major cause of tuberculosis(TB) and death. In addition, nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) play a significant role in the aetiology of tuberculosis-like syndromes. A diagnosis ...
