Bacterial Invasiveness (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)

Bacterial Invasiveness (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology) by Virginia L. Miller
English | Oct. 4, 2013 | ISBN: 3642852181 | 124 Pages | PDF | 8 MB

Intracellular pathogens are responsible for a number of important diseases worldwide, including tuberculosis, plague and bacillary dysentery. This volume focusses on those intracellular pathogens that have been studied most extensively at the molecular, genetic, and cellular level. The reviews attempt to integrate the information derived from these diverse approaches into a cohesive picture.

Apoptosis in Immunology (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)

Apoptosis in Immunology (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology) by Guido Kroemer
English | Jan. 1, 1995 | ISBN: 3642794394 | 241 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

In any movement of their life, immune cells, especially T and B lymphocytes, are confronted with an essential choice: to continue their existence or to commit a sort of metabolic suicide that is referred to as apoptosis or programmed cell death. In contrast to most philosophers, lymphocytes and their precursors are constantly susceptible to suicide, and it even appears that the usual cause of T or B cell elimination is suicide rather than death from natural causes, accidents or murder. This book provides a vast overview of lymphocytes suicide: external triggers and internal motives leading to suicidal impulses, accomplices in self-destruction, weapons implicated in self-execution, removal of dead bodies and pharmacological prevention of suicide.

ADP-Ribosylating Toxins (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)

ADP-Ribosylating Toxins (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology) by Klaus Aktories
English | Jan. 1, 1992 | ISBN: 3642769683 | 153 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

ADP-ribosylating toxins have been the focus of intensive research for more than 30 years. Researchers from diverse fields of science have taken an interest in these bacterial toxins; they are studied, for example, by microbiologists, biochemists, cell biologists, and pharmacologists. There are two principal reasons for the broad and still growing interest in ADP­ ribosylating toxins. First, insights into the structure and functions of the toxins might be the key to prevention and treatment of diseases caused by the toxin-producing infectious micro­ organisms. Second, the ADP-ribosylating toxins provide potent and often unique pharmacological tools for the study of the physiological functions of their target proteins. The latter is especially the case with cholera and pertussis toxins, which both modify the IX-subunits of heterotrimeric G-proteins involved in signal transduction pathways.

Many bacteria, such as certain Neisseria and Haemophilus or Escherichia coli, are able to withstand the bactericidal activity of complement and phagocytes. This bacterial self protection is brought about by encapsulation. Bacterial capsules thus enable the pathogenic bacteria to survive in the host by counter­ action or evasion of the nonspecific host defense in the early pre immune phase of an infection. It is only in the late immune phase of the infection, when specific anticapsular antibodies are formed and enforce the host's defense system, that this protective action is overcome. Encapsulated bacteria are then killed and eliminated. Interestingly, some capsules can not or only inefficiently be handled by the immune system.

Antigen Presentation (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)

Antigen Presentation (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology) by J Lindsay Whitton
English | Jan. 1, 1998 | ISBN: 3642720471 | 248 Pages | PDF | 12 MB

Antigen presentation is central to the immune response, and is instrumental in ensuring that the response mounted is that best suited to the eradication of the particular microbe faced. In this volume, experts in the field provide state-of-the-art descriptions of the antigen presentation pathways.
Arenaviruses: Biology and Immunotherapy (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)

Arenaviruses: Biology and Immunotherapy (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology) by Michael Oldstone
English | Jan. 1, 1987 | ISBN: 3642717284 | 244 Pages | PDF | 9 MB

M. B. A. OLDSTONE Viruses are generally studied either because they cause significant human, animal or plant disease or for their utility as materials to probe a basic phenomenon in biology, chemistry, genetics or molecular biology. Arenaviruses are unusually interesting in that they occupy both of these categories. Arenaviruses cause severe human diseases known primarily as the hemor­ rhagic fevers occurring in South and Latin America (Bolivia: Machupo virus and Argentina: Junin virus) and in Africa (Lassa virus). Because such viruses produce profound disability and may kill the persons they infect, they are a source of economic hardship in the countries where they are prevalent.
