Regulation of bacterial virulence.


Regulation of bacterial virulence.

Ed. by Michael L. Vasil and Andrew J. Darwin.

ASM Press


603 pages




Microbiologists describe both new and established lines of research into regulating the virulence of bacteria. They cover global changes during and between different states of infection; adherence, colonization, and surface factors; toxins and associated virulence factor production; protein export and intracellular life within the host; stress response during infection; and emerging regulatory mechanism of special significance. Among specific topics are regulating virulence by iron in gram-positive bacteria, uropathogenic Escherichia coli virulence and gene regulation, anthrax and iron, the regulation of vesicle formation, and regulation in response to host-derived signaling molecules.
