Immunization with hybrid recombinant Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv proteins increases the TH1 cytokine response in mice following a pulmonary instillation of irradiated mycobacteria.


The aim of this research was to identify subunit immunogens that can generate enhanced CD8 T cell and TH1 responses against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. A genomic comparison of the M. tuberculosis H(37)R(V) and M. bovis BCG identified 61 proteins that are unique to H(37)R(V). Further screening of these 61 proteins using in silico analyses mimicking… (More)
