... synthesis of peptidoglycan and other cell wall components. The absence of a homolog in eukaryotes makes GlmU an attractive target for therapeutic intervention. Mycobacterium tuberculosis GlmU (GlmU Mt ) has features, such as a C-terminal extension, that are not present in GlmU orthologs from other bacteria...

... phosphorylation, nitrosylation, and pupylation modulate multiple cellular processes in Mycobacterium tuberculosis . While protein methylation at lysine and arginine residues is widespread in eukaryotes, to date only two methylated proteins in Mtb have been identified. Here, we report the identification of...

...Flavia Squeglia; Alessia Ruggiero; Rita Berisio The scenario of chemical reactions prompted by the infection by Mycobacterium tuberculosis is huge. The infection generates a localized inflammatory response, with the recruitment of neutrophils, monocytes, and T-lymphocytes. Consequences of this...

... tuberculosis ( Mtb ). AnPRT catalyses the Mg 2+ -dependent transfer of a phosphoribosyl group from PRPP (5′-phosphoribosyl-1′-pyrophosphate) to anthranilate to form PRA (5′-phosphoribosyl anthranilate). Mtb -AnPRT was shown to catalyse a sequential reaction and significant substrate inhibition by anthranilate...

... known about Fe–S cluster biogenesis in other bacterial species. The ISC (iron–sulfur cluster) operon of Mycobacterium tuberculosis lacks several genes known to be essential for the function of this system in other organisms. However, the cysteine desulfurase IscSMtb (Rv number Rv3025c; Mtb denotes M...

... and Mycobacterium tuberculosis , the aetiological agent of tuberculosis in humans, are thought to be central to anti-mycobacterial immunity. We have previously shown that M. tuberculosis binds to human monocyte-derived dendritic cells mostly through the C-type lectin DC-SIGN (dendritic-cell-specific...
