    Mycobacterium tuberculosis employs various virulence strategies to subvert host immune responses in order to persist and cause disease. Interaction of M. tuberculosis with mannose receptor on macrophages via surface-exposed lipoarabinomannan (LAM) is believed to be critical for cell entry,...

    Background: M. bovis Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG), currently the only available vaccine against tuberculosis (TB), fails to adequately protect individuals from active and latent TB infection.

    The in vivo rate of proliferation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis, has been linked to the rate of progression and severity of disease. Here, we report that deletion of the gene MT2175 (Rv2115c), a putative mycobacterial proteasome-associated AAA-ATPase, leads...

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is widely believed to be an autoimmune disorder. Another exciting idea regarding the aetiology of MS may be that the immune response in MS could result from a chronic infection rather than autoimmunity in the usual sense. M. leprae-induced myelin damage in the early...
