Special proteins to fight TB identified

... The altered TB bacterium was able to grow in the lab and was able to cause an acute infection in mice. But this mutant form of TB did not cause a chronic infection unlike ordinary TB bacteria. It is possible that high levels of heat-shock proteins block the TVB bacterium's ability to infect cells, bu...
