Inhibition of Autophagy by MiR-30A Induced by Mycobacteria tuberculosis as a Possible Mechanism of Immune Escape in Human Macrophages.

The regulatory mechanism of miRNA induction in response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) infection has not been clearly established. Autophagy has recently been identified as an effective way to control intracellular survival of MTB. In the present study, we demonstrate a novel role of miR-30A in the negative regulation of the autophagy-mediated anti-MTB… CONTINUE READING
