  • Designed bacteria produce coral-antibiotic

    Corals growing on the reefs of the Bahamas produce an active agent that kills multi-resistant tuberculosis bacteria. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have managed to produce the antibiotic biotechnologically in the laboratory – fast, cost-efficient and sustainably. Thomas Brück more

  • Tuberculosis vaccine strengthens immune system

    A tuberculosis vaccine developed 100 years ago also makes vaccinated persons less susceptible to other infections. While this effect has been recognized for a long time, it is not known what causes it. Together with colleagues from Australia and Denmark, researchers from Radboud university medical c more

  • Blocking the Iron Transport Could Stop Tuberculosis

    The bacteria that cause tuberculosis need iron to survive. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now solved the first detailed structure of the transport protein responsible for the iron supply. When the iron transport into the bacteria is inhibited, the pathogen can no longer grow. This open more

  • Small RNA profiling in Mycobacterium tuberculosis identifies MrsI as necessary for an anticipatory iron sparing response [Microbiology]

    This work describes the most extensive discovery and functional characterization of small regulatory RNAs (sRNAs) in Mycobacterium tuberculosis to date. We comprehensively define the sRNAs expressed in M. tuberculosis under five host-like stress conditions. This reference dataset comprehensively def more

  • Dark nights, bright stars

    At a time when HIV epidemics in Western Europe are shrinking, Russia's is growing by about 10% a year. Russia, in fact, between 2010 and 2015 accounted for more than 80% of all the new infections in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Not only has the country turned away assistance from The Global Fund more
