    Flow Cytometric Quantification of Fatty Acid Uptake by Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Macrophages
    Authors:  Evgeniya V. Nazarova, Maria Podinovskaia, David G. Russell and Brian C. VanderVen, date: 02/20/2018, view: 3086, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) has evolved to assimilate fatty acids from its host. However, until recently, there was no reliable way to quantify fatty acid uptake by the bacteria during host cell infection. Here we describe a new method to quantify fatty acid uptake by intracellular bacilli. We infect macrophages with Mtb ...
    Bioelectrospray Methodology for Dissection of the Host-pathogen Interaction in Human Tuberculosis
    Authors:  Liku B Tezera, Magdalena K Bielecka and Paul T Elkington, date: 07/20/2017, view: 4142, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Standard cell culture models have been used to investigate disease pathology and to test new therapies for over fifty years. However, these model systems have often failed to mimic the changes occurring within three-dimensional (3-D) space where pathology occurs in vivo. To truthfully represent this, an emerging paradigm in biology is the ...
    Culture and Detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) and Mycobacterium bovis (BCG)
    Author:  Ran Chen, date: 01/20/2012, view: 27297, Q&A: 1
    [Abstract] Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) is the bacterial pathogen responsible for tuberculosis, a human pulmonary infectious disease. Mycobacterium bovis (BCG) is the causative agent of tuberculosis in cattle, and is often used as the vaccine stain in humans. Specific recipes and methods for culture of MTB and BCG are described in this ...
