Collection ID:CO001397
Collection Summary:Both male and female age-matched C57BL/6 mice (8-10 weeks old) were infected with Mtb H37Rv in animal BSL-3 laboratory and monitored with food and water ad libitum. Mice were sacrificed by anesthesia with isoflurane followed by gentle cervical dislocation as approved by institutional Animal Protocol Number (APN): 08591. Mice experimental procedures were approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA. For mice studies, we adhered as per national/international regulation of “Public Health Service Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals” (NIH), and “Animal Welfare Act and Animal Welfare Regulations” (USDA). Mouse genotype was confirmed by PCR and Western blotting. Mtb H37Rv was grown at 37 °C with shaking in BD Difco Middlebrook 7H9 media supplemented with 0.2 % glycerol, ADS (Albumin, Dextrose, NaCl) with 0.02 % tyloxapol. Mice were infected with 5 x 104 Mtb H37Rv via the intratracheal route. Lungs were collected from uninfected (n = 4), and Mtb-infected mice at 4- and 9-weeks post-infection (n = 4 and n = 5, respectively), and stored immediately at -80 °C for further processing and metabolite extraction.
