Once feared as a deadly intracellular bacterium, Listeria monocytogenes is increasingly recognized as a preferred vector for delivering anti-infective and anti-cancer vaccine molecules. This reference on fundamental aspects of the bacterium will support further advancement in biomedical sciences and intervention strategies. International contributors first detail the biology and pathogenicity of this bacterium (including epidemiology and stress responses), then describe identification and detection techniques, review the current knowledge of genetic manipulation of Listeria, discuss innate and adaptive immunity against Listeria, and report on the use of this bacterium for anti-infective and anti-cancer vaccine development. The book is of interest for anyone embarking on the path of manipulation of Listeria as either a model for the study of the host-bacterium relationship or as a tool for delivering protective molecules to cytoplasm cytoplasm: see protoplasm.
Portion of a eukaryotic cell outside the nucleus. The cytoplasm contains all the organelles (see eukaryote). . Liu is a member of the research faculty in the Department of Basic Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine veterinary medicine, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of animals. An early interest in animal diseases is found in ancient Greek writings on medicine. Veterinary medicine began to achieve the stature of a science with the organization of the first school in the , Mississippi State University Mississippi State University, at Mississippi State, near Starkville; land-grant and state supported; coeducational; chartered 1878 as an agricultural and mechanical college, opened 1880. From 1932 to 1958 it was known as Mississippi State College. .
