A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Changes in the cell envelope composition of mycobacteria cause major changes in cytokine profiles of infected antigen presenting cells. We describe here the modulation of inflammatory responses by Mycobacterium abscessus, an emerging pathogen in cystic fibrosis. M. abscessus is able to switch from a smooth (S) to a rough (R) morphotype by the loss of a surface glycopeptidolipid. R variants are associated with severe clinical forms and a ‘hyper-proinflammatory’ response in ex vivo and in vivo models. Using partitioning of cell surface components we found that a complex fraction, more abundant in R variants than in S variants, made a major contribution to the TLR-2-dependent hyper-proinflammatory response induced by R variants. Lipoproteins were the main TLR-2 agonists in this fraction, consistent with the larger amounts of 16 lipoproteins in cell surface extracts from R variants; 15 out of 16 being more strongly induced in R variant than in S variant. Genetic interruption of glycopeptidolipid pathway in wild-type S variant resulted in R phenotype with similar induction of lipoprotein genes. In conclusion, R morphotype in M. abscessus is associated with increased synthesis/exposure at the cell surface of lipoproteins, these changes profoundly modifying the innate immune response through TLR-2-dependent mechanisms.
