Mycobacterium indicus pranii (earlier known as Mycobacterium w) has been used as an immunmodulatory agent in leprosy and tuberculosis by mediating the release of various cytokines and chemokines. CXCL10 (IP-10) and CXCL11 (I-TAC) chemokines are involved in T-cell migration and stimulation of natural killer cells in Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. In(More)
The intramolecular long-range S → N acyl migration via 13-, 15-, and 16-membered cyclic transition states to form native tetra- and pentapeptide analogues was studied on S-acylcysteine peptides containing β- or γ-amino acids. The pH-dependency study of the acyl migration via a 15-membered cyclic transition state indicated that the reaction is favored at a(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES The immune responses to different antigens of Mycobacterium tuberculosis H 37 Rv vary from patient to patient with tuberculosis (TB). Therefore, significant difference might be documented between the H 37 Rv with long histories of passages and recent clinical isolates of M. tuberculosis. In the present study, immune response of TB(More)
S-Acyl cysteine peptides containing α-, β- or γ-amino acid residues undergo long-range S- to N-acyl transfer to give analogs of native tripeptides and tetrapeptides containing additional carbon atoms in the chain. The ease of intramolecular S → N-acyl transfer relative to intermolecular transacylation is favored increasingly for 9 < 12 < 13 ~ 10-membered(More)
Colorimetric methods are cheap, reproducible, and rapid methods of detecting drug resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The MTT (3-(4,5-dimethylthiazole-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide) method is one such technique that has been established in our laboratory to detect rifampicin resistance. The present study compared the results of the MTT method(More)
The anion binding properties of bile acid-based cyclic bisbenzimidazolium receptors 6-8 bridged with m-xylene, p-xylene, and 2,6-dimethylpyridine have been studied. Receptors 6 and 7 exhibit much higher binding affinity for fluoride and chloride ions, respectively, as compared to the imidazolium receptors 1 and 2. Receptor 8, however, shows high selectivity(More)
