The aim of this study was to assess and characterize Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) genotypic diversity in Tanzania, as well as in neighbouring East and other several African countries. We used spoligotyping to ...
Comparative analysis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis pe and ppe genes reveals high sequence variation and apparent absence of selective constraints
(Public Library of Science, 2012-04-04)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) genomes contain 2 large gene families termed pe and ppe. The function of pe/ppe proteins remains enigmatic but studies suggest that they are secreted or cell surface associated and ...
