Mice from four different inbred strains were infected with live Mycobacterium tuberculosis and the immune response to M. tuberculosis was followed for 24 weeks, using Western blotting. Nearly all mice, irrespective of H-2 type, reacted with the 38-kDa protein band. Antibodies against this secreted 38-kDa protein were the first to appear, 4 weeks after… CONTINUE READING
