Mycobacterium tuberculosis: Strategies of offense and defense
Strategies of macrophage attack by Mycobacterium tuberculosis and defense against immune response are considered in detail. The mechanisms of cell invasion, strategies of survival within phagosomes, methods for the suppression of antigen presentation, and pathways of M. tuberculosis transition into the persisting latent state are discussed.
