Better understanding the Campylobacter conundrum.


Better understanding the Campylobacter conundrum.

Ed. by Amelie Garenaux et al.

Nova Science Publishers


151 pages




The conundrum about C. jejune is this: the bacteria has a very small genome and lacks most of the well-known regulations systems that other pathogens rely on to withstand environmental stress and attacks by immune systems of hosts, but it still infects humans and causes gastro-enteritis, rarely causes serious neuropathies, and is developing antibiotic-resistant strains. A team of 11 researchers review the literature on the bacteria from the perspectives of food safety, general and specific features of campylobacter genomes, stress resistance mechanisms and regulation pathways, and other strategies for adapting to the environment.
