Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb.) replicates in host macrophages to cause tuberculosis. We have investigated the role of miRNAs in M.tb.-infected murine RAW264.7 cells and bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMDMs), focusing on miR-155, the most highly upregulated miRNA. We observed that miR-155 upregulation is directly linked to the attenuation of expression(More)
Autophagy is an intracellular catabolic process that is required to maintain cellular homeostasis. Pathogen-elicited host cell autophagy may favour containment of infection or may help in bacterial survival. Pathogens have developed the ability to modulate host autophagy. The secreted antigen HP0175, a peptidyl prolyl cis,trans isomerase of Helicobacter(More)
Macrophages play an important role in the establishment of infection by intracellular pathogens. Mycobacterium tuberculosis is known to inhibit apoptosis and to downregulate immune responses of host cells using various strategies, including activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)γ. Mannose-capped lipoarabinomannan (ManLAM) is one of(More)
