Sulfur compound metabolism (R-MTU-936621)

Species Mycobacterium tuberculosis


Unique small sulfur compounds, as well as unique pathways to sulfur amino acids are known in Mycobacteria. Sulfoglycolipids and mycothiols are an important part of the hardy pathogen nature of these organisms. Their pathways make interesting targets for drug designers (Bhave et al, 2007).
