    • Analysing nonsynonymous mutations between two Mycobacterium bovis strains with contrasting pathogenic profiles 

      Bigi, María Mercedes; Vazquez, Cristina Lourdes; Castelão, Ana Beatriz C.; Garcia, Elizabeth Andrea; Cataldi, Angel Adrian; Jackson, Mary; McNeil, Michael; Soria, Marcelo Abel; Zumarraga, Martin Jose; Cabruja, Matias; Gago, Gabriela; Blanco, Federico Carlos; Nishibe, Christiane; Almeida Junior, Nalvo Franco de; Araujo, Flabio Ribeiro de; Bigi, Fabiana (Elsevier, 2019-12)
      Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) is the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis, a chronic infectious disease that can affect cattle, other domesticated species, wild animals and humans. This disease produces important economic ...
    • Bovine macrophages responses to the infection with virulent and attenuated Leptospira interrogans serovar Pomona 

      Nagel, Ariel Gaston; Vazquez, Cristina Lourdes; Etulain, Julia; Blanco, Federico Carlos; Gravisaco, María José; Gomez, Ricardo Martín; Caimi, Karina Cynthia (Elsevier, 2019-06)
      Leptospirosis is a zoonosis, caused by pathogenic spirochetes of the genus Leptospira. Although cattle are usually the maintenance hosts of serovar Hardjo, Pomona is the most frequent serovar circulating in Argentina. The ...
    • Characterization of the two component regulatory system PhoPR in Mycobacterium bovis 

      Garcia, Elizabeth Andrea; Blanco, Federico Carlos; Bigi, María Mercedes; Vazquez, Cristina Lourdes; Forrellad, Marina Andrea; Rocha, Rosana Valeria; Golby, Paul; Soria, Marcelo Abel; Bigi, Fabiana (Elsevier, 2018-08)
      Mycobacterium bovis is the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis and is a member of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, which causes tuberculosis in a number of mammals including humans. Previous studies have shown that ...
    • FasR regulates fatty acid biosynthesis and is essential for virulence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis 

      Mondino, Sonia; Vazquez, Cristina Lourdes; Cabruja, Matias; Sala, Claudia; Cazenave-Gassiot, Amaury; Blanco, Federico Carlos; Wenk, Markus R.; Bigi, Fabiana; Cole, Stewart T.; Gramajo, Hugo; Gago, Gabriela (Frontiers Media, 2020-10)
      Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the etiologic agent of human tuberculosis, is the world’s leading cause of death from an infectious disease. One of the main features of this pathogen is the complex and dynamic lipid composition ...
    • Mycobacterium bovis requires P27 (LprG) to arrest phagosome maturation and replicate within bovine macrophages 

      Vazquez, Cristina Lourdes; Bianco, María Veronica; Blanco, Federico Carlos; Forrellad, Marina Andrea; Gutierrez, Maximiliano Gabriel; Bigi, Fabiana (2017-03)
      Mycobacterium bovis causes tuberculosis in a wide variety of mammals, with strong tropism for cattle and eventually humans. P27, also called LprG, is among the proteins involved in the mechanisms of the virulence and ...
    • Rv2577 of Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a virulence factor with dual phosphatase and phosphodiesterase functions 

      Forrellad, Marina Andrea; Blanco, Federico Carlos; Marrero Diaz De Vill, Rubén; Vazquez, Cristina Lourdes; Yaneff, Agustín; Garcia, Elizabeth Andrea; Gutierrez, Maximiliano Gabriel; Durán, Rosario; Villarino, Andrea; Bigi, Fabiana (Frontiers Media, 2020-10)
      Tuberculosis, a lung disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), is one of the ten leading causes of death worldwide affecting mainly developing countries. Mtb can persist and survive inside infected cells through ...
    • Rv2617c and P36 are virulence factors of pathogenic mycobacteria involved in resistance to oxidative stress 

      Forrellad, Marina Andrea; Vazquez, Cristina Lourdes; Blanco, Federico Carlos; Klepp, Laura Ines; Garcia, Elizabeth Andrea; Rocha, Rosana Valeria; Villafañe, Luciana Maria; Bigi, María Mercedes; Gutierrez, Maximiliano Gabriel; Bigi, Fabiana (Taylor & Francis, 2019-12)
      In this study, we characterized the role of Rv2617c in the virulence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Rv2617c is a protein of unknown function unique to M. tuberculosis complex (MTC) and Mycobacterium leprae. In vitro, this ...
