BACKGROUND Mycobacterium tuberculosis is one of the most dangerous human pathogens. Molecular typing of M. tuberculosis has allowed better control of tuberculosis and, among other benefits, identification of genetic lineages among strains. OBJECTIVE To test the potential of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based methods for the epidemiological study of M.(More)
Bacterial cell division and cell wall synthesis are highly coordinated processes involving multiple proteins. Here, we show that Rv0008c, a novel small membrane protein from Mycobacterium tuberculosis, localizes to the poles and on membranes and shows an overall punctate localization throughout the cell. Furthermore, Rv0008c interacts with two proteins,(More)
FtsZ assembly at the midcell division site in the form of a Z-ring is crucial for initiation of the cell division process in eubacteria. It is largely unknown how this process is regulated in the human pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Here we show that the expression of clpX was upregulated upon macrophage infection and exposure to cephalexin(More)
The role(s) in cell division of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis Rv0011c gene product, a homolog of the Streptomyces CrgA protein that is responsible for coordinating growth and cytokinesis in sporogenic aerial hyphae, is largely unknown. We show that an enhanced cyan fluorescent protein-M. tuberculosis CrgA (ECFP-CrgA(MT)) fusion protein is localized to the(More)
