Ultrastructural analysis of cell envelope and accumulation of lipid inclusions in clinical Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from sputum, oxidative stress, and iron deficiency

Abstract:

Introduction

Mycobacteria have several unique cellular characteristics, such as multiple cell envelope layers, elongation at cell poles, asymmetric cell division, and accumulation of intracytoplasmic lipid inclusions, which contributes to their survival under stress conditions. However, the understanding of these characteristics in clinical Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) isolates and under host stress is limited. We previously reported the influence of host stress o...
