  • PubMed Abstract: 

    . Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the single most deadly human pathogen and is responsible for nearly three million deaths every year. Recent elucidation of the mode of action of isoniazid, a frontline antimycobacterial drug, suggests that NAD metabolism is extremely critical for this microorganism. M. tuberculosis depends solely on the de novo pathway to meet its NAD demand. Quinolinic acid phosphoribosyltransferase (QAPRTase), a key enzyme in the de novo biosynthesis of NAD, provides an attractive target for designing novel antitubercular drugs.
