Serine/threonine protein kinases (STPKs) are known to act as sensors of environmental signals that thereby regulate developmental changes and host pathogen interactions. In this study, we carried out comparative genome analysis of six completely sequenced pathogenic and nonpathogenic mycobacterial species to systematically characterize the STPK complement of mycobacterium. Our analysis revealed that while Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains have 11 conserved kinases, this number varies from 4 to… CONTINUE READING
