Adhesion to and invasion of pulmonary epithelial cells by the F15/LAM4/KZN and Beijing strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Abstract

Globally, specific genotypes of Mycobacterium tuberculosis have been shown to dominate in patients, suggesting that these are more successful pathogens. One such genotype, the F15/LAM4/KZN (KZN) family of M. tuberculosis, has predominated in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, since the early 1990s.
