The culture filtrate proteins (CFPs) from Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) have been shown to induce protective immune responses in human and animal models, making them a promising source of candidate targets for tuberculosis drugs, vaccines and diagnostics. The constituents of the MTB CFP proteome are complex and vary with growth conditions. To effectively(More)
Tuberculosis (TB) remains a global infectious disease. To investigate the value of a novel Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) region of difference 5 (RD5)-encoded antigen, Rv3117, in the development of effective immuno-diagnostics and vaccines against TB, the immune responses to the antigen were examined in human subjects, as well as in C57BL/6(More)
OBJECTIVE To express and purify the Pro-Pro-Glu (PPE) family protein Rv1168c of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in E. coli. and to study the structure of Rv1168c. METHODS The Rv1168c gene was amplified by PCR from Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv strain genomic DNA and cloned into a prokaryotic expression vector pET32a The resulting recombinant expression(More)
