Grant Program:
Investigator
Grant Activity:
What doesn't kill tuberculosis makes it stronger: carbon monoxide as a host-derived energy source for mycobacterial persistence
Purpose:

This research program will reveal how tuberculosis, now the leading cause of infectious disease worldwide, is affected by carbon monoxide gas. Carbon monoxide is a potent toxin for humans and most other lifeforms. However, we have collected data indicating that the causative agent of tuberculosis can live on this gas as an energy source. This program will determine how and why they do so, and whether this process is a suitable target for antibiotic development.
