Abstract

Two secreted antigens (38 and 30 kDa) and 1 cytosolic antigen (16 kDa) were purified in our laboratory from Mycobacterium tuberculosis culture filtrate and cytosol using chromatographic/electrophoretic methods. One recombinant antigen (27 kDa, MPT51) expressed in Escherichia coli was al...read more
