To investigate Mycobacterium avium gene expression upon infection of macrophages, we created a M. avium-promoter library upstream of a promoter-less gene encoding the green fluorescent protein (GFP) in Mycobacterium smegmatis. Clones were evaluated for increased expression of GFP after infection of U937 macrophages. A number of M. avium genes were(More)
