The beginning of the twenty-first century brought... more...

  • Bacterial Virulence Factors and Rho GTPasesby Patrice Boquet; E. Lemichez

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 223.52

    Pathogenic bacteria for human and animals have developed sophisticated weapons, termed virulence factors, to ensure their replication and persistence into their hosts. The authors in this volume show a synthesis on how the various host cellular Rho GTPases activities are manipulated by bacteria to fulfil their virulence. more...

  • Bacterial Biofilmsby Tony Romeo

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 245.98

    Throughout the biological world, bacteria thrive predominantly in surface-attached, matrix-enclosed, multicellular communities or biofilms, as opposed to isolated planktonic cells. This choice of lifestyle is not trivial, as it involves major shifts in the use of genetic information and cellular energy, and has profound consequences for bacterial physiology... more...

  • Comparative Hepatitisby Olaf Weber; Ulrike Protzer
