Establishment and maintenance of persistent, latent infection by Mycobacterium tuberculosis are dependent on expression of the mprA-mprB regulatory system. Previously, MprA and MprB were shown to participate in phosphotransfer reactions characteristic of two-component signaling systems. To begin identifying downstream effector genes regulated by mprA-mprB(More)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis remains a significant global health concern largely due to its ability to persist for extended periods within the granuloma of the host. While residing within the granuloma, the tubercle bacilli are likely to be exposed to stress that can result in formation of aberrant proteins with altered structures. Bacteria encode stress(More)
