Therapeutic potential of mycolactone surrogates
Inflammation adversely affects the health of millions of people worldwide and there is an unmet medical need for better anti-inflammatory drugs. Our group evaluates the therapeutic interest of mycolactone, a polyketide-derived macrolide produced by […]
Mycolactone of M. ulcerans and immunodulation
Mycolactone is a diffusible macrolide produced by Mycobacterium ulcerans, the causative agent of a chronic skin disease called Buruli ulcer. Defective cellular immune responses, at the local and systemic levels, are hallmarks of Buruli […]
Biomarkers of Buruli ulcer disease
Buruli ulcer is the third most common mycobacterial disease after Tuberculosis and Leprosy. It is a chronic, necrotizing disease of the skin and soft tissues that is reported in over thirty tropical and subtropical […]
Mycobacterial phenolic glycolipids and innate host defenses
Across different species of mycobacteria, phenolic glycolipids (PGL) share a common lipid core and phenol ring that are embedded in the cell envelope, and differ in the saccharidic portion that is exposed on the […]
Mycolactone of M. ulcerans and the actin cytoskeleton
A distinctive feature of the human pathogen Mycobacterium ulcerans is the production of mycolactone. This original polyketide-derived macrolide is essential for bacterial virulence and sufficient to induce ulcerative lesions in the skin that are […]
