Intensity values of the Mtb-associated metabolites phosphatidylglycerol (PG) (16:0_18:1) and lysophosphatidylinositol (Lyso-PI) (18:0), as well as m/z 1321.9177 [each p < 0.001; active TB cases (green triangles) vs household contacts (red triangles)]. m/z 1321.9177 was predicted as acylphosphatidylinositol mannoside (Ac1PIM1) (56:1) based on accurate mass and retention time measurements, but could not be confirmed using tandem MS/MS. Line depicts median values for each subject cohort.
