      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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Surface Display of AcMNPV Occlusion-Derived P74 Does Not Enhance Oral Infectivity of Budded Viruses 

      Alfonso, Victoria; Lopez, Maria Gabriela; Carrillo, Elisa Cristina; Taboga, Oscar Alberto (S. Karger AG, 2012-02)
      Baculovirus occlusion-derived viruses (ODVs) and budded viruses (BVs) are morphologically and functionally distinct. ODVs are responsible for primary infection in insect hosts because of their high per os infectivity. On ...
    • Type VI secretion system in pathogenic escherichia coli: structure, role in virulence, and acquisition 

      Navarro-García, Fernando; Ruiz-Perez, Fernando; Cataldi, Angel Adrian; Larzabal, Mariano (Frontiers Media, 2019-08)
      Bacterial pathogens utilize a myriad of mechanisms to invade mammalian hosts, damage tissue sites, and evade the immune system. One essential strategy of Gram-negative bacteria is the secretion of virulence factors through ...
    • Virulence factors of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex 

      Forrellad, Marina Andrea; Klepp, Laura Ines; Gioffre, Andrea; Sabio y Garcia, Julia Veronica; Morbidoni, Hector R.; Santangelo, María De La Paz; Cataldi, Angel Adrian; Bigi, Fabiana (Taylor & Francis, 2013-01)
      The Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) consists of closely related species that cause tuberculosis in both humans and animals. This illness, still today, remains to be one of the leading causes of morbidity and ...
