    The 1,5-diarylpyrrole derivative BM212 was previously shown to be active against multidrug-resistant clinical isolates and Mycobacterium tuberculosis residing within macrophages as well as against Mycobacterium avium and ...
  • Protein inactivation in mycobacteria by controlled proteolysis and its application to deplete the beta subunit of RNA polymerase 

    Kim, Jee-Hyun; Wei, Jun-Rong; Wallach, Joshua B.; Robbins, Rebekkah S.; Rubin, Eric J.; Schnappinger, Dirk (Oxford University Press, 2011)
    Using a component of the Escherichia coli protein degradation machinery, we have established a system to regulate protein stability in mycobacteria. A protein tag derived from the E. coli SsrA degradation signal did not ...
  • Mycobacterial mistranslation is necessary and sufficient for rifampicin phenotypic resistance 

    Javid, Babak; Sorrentino, Flavia; Toosky, Melody; Zheng, Wen; Pinkham, Jessica T.; Jain, Nina; Pan, Miaomiao; Deighan, Padraig; Rubin, Eric J. (National Academy of Sciences, 2014)
    Errors are inherent in all biological systems. Errors in protein translation are particularly frequent giving rise to a collection of protein quasi-species, the diversity of which will vary according to the error rate. As ...
