sojMtbandmazEF6are expressed during infection. Quantative-PCR carried out on cDNA generated from RNA pools obtained from Mid-Log phase Mtb and mouse (A) lungs and (B) spleen at day 20, 40, and 100 post-infection. sojMtb(rv1708) transcripts increased in abundance throughout the course of infection in comparison to Mid-Log phase Mtb. mazEF6 (rv1991a, rv1991c) transcripts were identified at day 20, 40 and 100 infection in the lungs and spleen.
