Advances in molecular and cellular microbiology: Stress response in pathogenic bacteria: Metal Ion Sensing in Mycobacteriun tuberculosis

Jennifer Cavet, Stephen P. Kidd

    Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

    Abstract

    The ability of pathogenic bacteria to adapt to various chemical, biochemical and physical conditions within the human host and their ability to respond to stresses generated in these environments is a central feature of infectious diseases and the outcome of bacterial infection. This book covers the key aspects of this rapidly developing field, including the generation of stresses by the host immune system, bacterial response to reactive chemicals, and adaptation to environmental conditions of anatomical niches such as the gut, mouth and urogenital tract. It also addresses the increasing importance of different metal ions in the pathogenesis and survival of specific bacteria. With chapters by active research experts in the field, the book provides a comprehensive outline of the current understanding of this field, the latest developments and where future research is likely to be directed. © CAB International 2011.
