The intracellular pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) causes tuberculosis. Enhanced intracellular survival (Eis) protein, secreted by Mtb, enhances survival of Mycobacterium smegmatis (Msm) in macrophages. Mtb Eis was shown to suppress host immune defenses by negatively modulating autophagy, inflammation, and cell death through JNK-dependent inhibition of reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation. Mtb Eis was recently demonstrated to contribute to drug resistance by acetylating multiple… CONTINUE READING
