Abstract

To date, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) remains the world's greatest infectious killer. The rise of multidrug-resistant strains stresses the need to identify new therapeutic targets to fight the epidemic. We previously demonstrated that bacterial protein-O-mannosylation is crucial for Mtb infectiousness, renewing the interest of the bacterial-secreted mannoproteins as potential drug-targetable virulence factors. The difficulty of inventorying the mannoprotein repertoire expressed by Mtb led us to design a stringent multi-step workflow for the reliable identification of glycosylated peptides by large-scale mass spectrometry-based proteomics. Applied to the differential analyses of glycoproteins secreted by the wild-type Mtb strain-and by its derived mutant invalidated for the protein-O-mannosylating enzyme PMTub-this approach led to the identification of not only most already known mannoproteins, but also of yet-unknown mannosylated proteins. In addition, analysis of the glycoproteome expressed by the isogenic recombinant Mtb strain overexpressing the PMTub gene revealed an unexpected mannosylation of proteins, with predicted or demonstrated functions in Mtb growth and interaction with the host cell. Since in parallel, a transient increased expression of the PMTub gene has been observed in the wild-type bacilli when infecting macrophages, our results strongly suggest that the Mtb mannoproteome may undergo adaptive regulation during infection of the host cells. Overall, our results provide deeper insights into the complexity of the repertoire of mannosylated proteins expressed by Mtb, and open the way to novel opportunities to search for still-unexploited potential therapeutic targets.
