Abstract PknB is an essential serine/threonine kinase of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which plays an important role in a number of signalling pathways involved in cell division and metabolism. This finding supports the development of protein kinase inhibitors as new potential anti-tubercular agents. The reported PknB inhibitors were found to be less potent against whole cells as compared to the purified protein. This difference in potency might be due to the cell wall permeability factor in the… CONTINUE READING
