Investigating the metabolic capabilities of Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv using the in silico strain iNJ661 and proposing alternative drug targets

Neema Jamshidi, Bernhard Ø Palsson
2007 BMC Systems Biology  
Many of the drugs used for treatment of tuberculosis target metabolic enzymes.  ...  Finally, by considering the HCR sets in the context of known drug targets for tuberculosis treatment we proposed new alternative, but equivalent drug targets.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was supported in part by an NIH Training Grant. We also thank Mr. Scott Becker and Mr. Adam Feist for helpful comments and feedback.  ...

Genome-Scale Metabolic Modeling for Unraveling Molecular Mechanisms of High Threat Pathogens

Mustafa Sertbas, Kutlu O. Ulgen
2020 Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology  
The genes or enzymes responsible for the essential metabolic reactions in pathogen growth are regarded as potential drug targets, as a priori guide to researchers in the pharmaceutical field.  ...  Along with essential metabolic reactions, alternate pathways and fluxes are predicted by performing computational flux analyses for the growth of pathogens in a very short time.  ...  Genome annotation of M. tuberculosis H37Rv was used as the starting point in iNJ661 model reconstruction (Cole et al., 1998) .  ...

Ove Oeyas, Sonia Borrel, Andrej Trauner, Michael Zimmermann, Julia Feldmann, Sebastien Gagneux, Joerg Stelling, Uwe Sauer, Mattia Zampieri
2019 bioRxiv   pre-print
Human tuberculosis is caused by members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) and presents variable disease outcomes.  ...  Here, we used metabolomics to unravel the potential role of genetic variations in conferring strain-specific adaptive capacity and vulnerability.  ...  Hans-Michael Kaltenbach, and Charlotte Ramon for helpful contributions to the analysis.  ...

Probabilistic integrative modeling of genome-scale metabolic and regulatory networks inEscherichia coliandMycobacterium tuberculosis

Sriram Chandrasekaran, Nathan D. Price
2010 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
Prediction of metabolic changes that result from genetic or environmental perturbations has several important applications, including diagnosing metabolic disorders and discovering novel drug targets.  ...  After validating the approach, we used PROM to build a genome-scale integrated metabolic-regulatory model for Mycobacterium tuberculosis, a critically important human pathogen.  ...  This work was supported by a National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute Howard Temin Pathway to Independence Award in Cancer Research, a Young Investigator Grant from the Roy J.  ...
