    • 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 ...
    • Development and evaluation of a low cost IgG ELISA test based in RBD protein for COVID-19 

      Villafañe, Luciana María; Gallo Vaulet, Maria Lucia; Viere, Florencia M.; Klepp, Laura Ines; Forrellad, Marina Andrea; Bigi, María Mercedes; Romano, Maria Isabel; Magistrelli, Giovanni; Rodríguez Fermepin, Marcelo; Bigi, Fabiana (Elsevier, 2022-01)
      Serology tests for SARS-CoV-2 have proven to be important tools to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. These serological tests can be used in low-income and remote areas for patient contact tracing, epidemiologic studies ...
    • Metabolic profile of mycobacterium smegmatis reveals Mce4 proteins are relevant for cell wall lipid homeostasis 

      Santangelo, María De La Paz; Heuberger, Adam; Blanco, Federico Carlos; Forrellad, Marina Andrea; Taibo, Catalina Beatriz; Klepp, Laura Ines; Sabio y Garcia, Julia Veronica; Nikel, Pablo I.; Jackson, Mary; Bigi, Fabiana (2016)
      Introduction The Mce proteins are encoded in a variable number of operons (from one to eight) in all Mycobacterium species. A role in the transport of host and mycobacterial lipids has been demonstrated for some Mce proteins ...
    • 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 ...
    • Study of the in vivo role of Mce2R, the transcriptional regulator of mce2 operon in Mycobacterium tuberculosis
