Abstract: Identification of in vitro and in vivo released mycobacterial antigens are of considerable interest in diagnosis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Isolation of in vitro released antigen from M. tb excretory-secretory culture filtrate protein and in vivo released circulating tuberculous antigen from smear positive pulmonary tuberculosis sera by ammonium sulphate precipitation is reported. The antigens were resolved by SDS–PAGE and immunoblotting was performed using pooled serum of smear positive, smear negative pulmonary tuberculosis sera and normal sera to identify reactive tuberculous antigens. In vitro and in vivo released mycobacterial antigens showed reactivity at 100, 31, 43 and 20 kDa with smear positive and smear negative pulmonary tuberculosis patients. Further, the in vitro released antigen showed strong reactivity exclusively at 55 kDa antigen with smear positive and 24 kDa antigen with smear negative pulmonary tuberculosis sera. In vivo released antigen reacted exclusively at 170 and 16 kDa with smear positive and 19 kDa antigen with smear negative pulmonary tuberculosis patients. Antigens of 24 and 19 kDa which are reactive with sputum negative sera will be of diagnostic interest and need further study in patients with low bacillary load. The in vitro and in vivo released mycobacterial 100, 31, 43 and 20 kDa antigens, reactive with patients sera are of diagnostic interest in tuberculosis.
