A novel toxin – and the first ever found – for a deadly pathogen, M. tuberculosis

Despite 132 years of study, no toxin had ever been found for the deadly pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which infects 9 million people a year and kills more than 1 million. Now, researchers have described the first known toxin of this pathogenic bacterium. This toxin — Tuberculosis Necrotizing Toxin, or TNT — is the founding member of a novel class of previously unrecognized toxins present in more than 600 bacterial and fungal species, as determined by protein sequence similarity.
