Abstract

Drug resistance has increased the pace of war against the ever-growing challenge of mycobacterial infections particularly with the growing menace of tuberculosis (TB).Previous studies reported several essential and virulent genes of mycobacterium like virS gene and mymA operon[1] through experimental approaches. However, Post genomic approach applied for the identification of targets for tuberculosis which includes the comparison of Mycobacterium tuberculosis CDC1551 proteome against database of essential genes and proteome of Homo sapiens. A total of approx 4000 proteins were studied and compared and 19 proteins were found to possess potentiality to call as Targets.
