Recombinant Mycobacterium tuberculosis protein associated with mammalian cell entry.


The ability to gain entry and resist the antimicrobial intracellular environment of mammalian cells is an essential virulence property of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. A purified recombinant protein expressed by a 1362 bp locus (mce1) in the M. tuberculosis genome promoted uptake into HeLa cells of polystyrene latex microspheres coated with the protein. N… (More)
