Tuberculosis Terpene Targets

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

In this issue, Young, Moody, and colleagues report the discovery of an isomer of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) virulence factor 1-tuberculosinyl adenosine, N6-tuberculosinyl adenosine, in mice infected with tuberculosis. These Mtb-derived terpene compounds may serve as sensitive and specific biomarkers of infection.
