      Sequence comparison of the multiple Mycobacterial GroELs identifies two families with distinguishable by their C-terminal sequences. One of these is specific to mycobacteria and thus presents a novel drug target for anti-mycobacterial agents to treat TB, leprosy and Buruli ulcers.

      Polyprenyl phosphate mannose synthase (Ppm) and protein mannosyl transferase (Pmt) are required for protein mannosylation of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis Apa protein in Streptomyces coelicolor, but lipoprotein N-acyl transferase (Lnt) is dispensable.
