  • 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

  • Immune boost against the corona virus

    The course of the corona pandemic will strongly depend on how quickly medications or vaccines against the SARS co-virus 2 can be developed.

  • 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
