Tuberculosis, an infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), remains a major cause of human death worldwide. Innate immunity provides host defense against Mtb. Phagocytosis, characterized by recognition of Mtb by macrophages and dendritic cells (DCs), is the first step of the innate immune defense mechanism. The recognition of Mtb is(More)
Sulfotransferases catalyze the sulfate conjugation of a wide variety of endogenous and exogenous molecules. Human pathogenic mycobacteria produce numerous sulfated molecules including sulfolipids which are well related to the virulence of several strains. The genome of Mycobacterium avium encodes eight putative sulfotransferases (stf1, stf4-stf10). Among(More)
— What makes a combinatorial optimization problem hard? The concept of phase transition was introduced in combinatorial decision problems to explain that not all NP-Complete problems are hard, and that there exists a phase transition from solvable to unsolvable problems, within which hard problems exist. Phase transition has been studied using randomly(More)
