Unmasking subtle differences in the infectivity of microevolved Mycobacterium tuberculosis variants coinfecting the same patient

Investigation article published in International Journal of Medical Microbiology

December 1st, 2013

Clonal variants of Mycobacterium tuberculosis can emerge as a result of microevolution phenomena. The functional significance of these subtle genetic rearrangements is normally disregarded. We show that clonal variants from two patients had different infective behaviours in some in vitro cellular infection models but not in others. Microevolution may have a subtle impact on infectivity, but specific experimental conditions are needed to unmask it
