    Generating Three-dimensional Human Granulomas in vitro to Study Mycobacterium tuberculosis-host Interaction
    Authors:  Ainhoa Arbués, Michael Kammüller and Damien Portevin, date: 11/20/2020, view: 2181, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Granulomas are organized multicellular structures that constitute the hallmark of an infection by the human pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). A better understanding of the complex host-Mtb interactions within the granuloma’s environment may lead to new therapeutic or preventive tools to improve the control of the ...
    Detection of Membrane Potential in Mycobacterium tuberculosis
    Authors:  Manbeena Chawla and Amit Singh, date: 06/05/2013, view: 13676, Q&A: 3
    [Abstract] DiOC2 (Novo et al., 2000) exhibits green fluorescence in all bacterial cells, but the fluorescence shifts towards red emission as the dye molecules self associate at the higher cytosolic concentrations caused by larger membrane potentials. Proton ionophores such as CCCP destroy membrane potential by eliminating the proton ...
