Study sheds light on tuberculosis

Each year the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes World Health Day with the goal of spreading awareness for global health issues. The WHO names tuberculosis (TB) as one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide and over 95 percent of those deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. To improve the global health community's understanding of TB and provide information that could help treat it, Notre Dame researchers have developed a new strain of the bacteria along with a new method to better study this deadly disease. 
The studyimproved upon common
mass spectrometry methods – analytical techniques that measure the mass of proteins. In doing so, the Notre Dame researchers developed a method that advanced proteomic analyses of the natural protein while retaining EsxA protein function. Before this development, the proteins were unsuitable when current analytical methods were applied, in turn holding back TB research. Therefore, this outcome helps scientists study the EsxA protein's functions more fully.
