Description

This volume brings together studies on the differences and profound similarities in the molecular mechanism of virulence between bacteria pathogenic for humans, animals and plants. Topics covered include: host cell recognition and binding, pathogen ingression and invasive mechanism, enzymes, toxins and other pathogenic factors, regulation of virulence genes and signal transduction, and pathogen of host-defence mechanisms.
