Development of an Automated siRNA Screening of Host Macrophages Genes Involved in Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Infection

Abstract
In order to identify host genes required for M. tuberculosis infection and persistence, we developed a phenotypic cell-based assay in both murine and human cells and adapted it for high throughput and high content screening purposes. Knock-down efficiencies above 80% were achieved in “hard-to-Transfect” macrophage cells. Validation of the assay performed with control siRNAs will be discussed.
