Hi,
I'm a doctoral student in Microbiology and I'm working with Mycobacterium marinum. I know reptiles have been infected with M. marinum, smegmatis, intracellulare, etc. I was wondering if anyone knows any M. tuberculosis isolates from reptiles? M. tuberculosis is often considered only a human pathogen, but hasd been found in birds(particularly parrots), dogs, sheep , and swine, (as an infectious agent)Myprimary interest is in the diseases of reptiles, but unfortunately there is not a lot of work in that area. Any information regarding M.TB in reptiles would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Chris
