    Described as the earliest, simplest life forms, with unlimited metabolic versatility, bacteria are ideally suited to answer some very fundamental questions on life and its processes. They have been employed in almost all fields of biological studies, including Genetics. The whole edifice of science of Genetics centers around three processes: the generation, expression, and transmission of biological variation, and bacteria offer immediate advantages in studying all the three aspects of heredity. Being haploid and structurally simple, it becomes easy to isolate mutations of various kinds and relate them to a function. The availability of such mutants and their detailed genetic and biochemical analyses lead to a gamut of information on gene expression and its regulation. While studying the transmission of biological variation, it is clear that unlike their eukaryotic counterpart, a more genetic approach needs to be employed. Transmission of genetic information in most eukaryotic organisms rests on sexual reproduction that allows the generation of genetically variable offspring through the process of gene recombination. Even though bacteria show an apparent preference for asexual reproduction, they too have evolved mechanisms to trade their genetic material. In fact, bacteria not only could acquire many genes from close relatives, but also from entirely distant members through the process of horizontal gene transfer. Their success story of long evolutionary existence will stand testimony to these mechanisms. While teaching a course on Microbial Genetics to the post-graduate students at Delhi University, it was realized that a book devoted to bacterial genetics may be very handy to the students, researchers, and teachers alike. A strong foundation in genetics also helps in comprehending more modern concepts of molecular biology and recombinant DNA technology, always a favorite with the students and researchers. Planning the format of the book, emphasis has been laid on the generation and transmission of biological variability. The omission of expression part is indeed intentional because lots of information is available on this aspect in any modern biology book. The contents are spread over seven chapters and the text is supported with figures/tables wherever possible. The endeavor has been to induce the readers to appreciate the strength of bacterial genetics and realize the contribution of these tiny organisms to the growth of biological sciences as a whole and genetics in particular.

    "Preface Almost 1,800 media are described in the Handbook of Media for Clinical and Public Health Microbiology, including newly described media for the cultivation of emerging pathogens. Diseases caused by emerging pathogens that are responsible for increased rates of morbidity and mortality rates, such as Escherichia coli O157:H7, methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin resistant enterococci (VRE), and carbapenem resistant enterococci (CRE) have raised special concerns and various media included in the Handbook have been designed for the specific cultivation and identification of these pathogens. Many of the new media included in the Handbook of Media for Clinical and Public Health Microbiology permit the cultivation of bacteria, fungi, and viruses that are currently causing major medical problems around the world. These media are very important for the rapid detection of pathogenic microorganisms and the diagnosis of individuals with specific infectious diseases adn for preventing the spread of pathogens via food, water, and environmental sources. Several of the new media described in the Handbook of Media for Clinical and Public Health Microbiology include chromogenic or fluorogenic substrates that permit the rapid detection of specific pathogens. An important function of the Handbook of Media for Clinical and Public Health Microbiology is to provide descriptions of the media that are used to cultivate and identify microorganisms from clinical specimens and those of public health significance. The Handbook provides a compilation of the formulations, methods of preparation, and applications for media used in clinical and public health microbiology laboratories"--Provided by publisher.

    Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium that chronically infects the stomachs of more than half the human population, in some cases leading to serious diseases such as gastric cancer and ulcers. H. pylori intimately interact with the gastric epithelial surface, but much remains unknown about its life on the cell surface. The bacterium possesses several tools for its close interaction with the gastric epithelia, including a type IV secretion system, through which the virulence factor CagA is directly translocated into host cells. This dissertation focuses on how H. pylori's close interactions with the epithelial cells allows it to modify the apical cell surface to turn it into a replicative niche for the bacterium. Using live-cell microscopy to follow the fate of individual bacteria on the cell surface, we find that H. pylori is able to utilize the apical cell surface as a replicative niche, even in conditions that do not support the growth of free-swimming bacteria. Experiments with a polarized epithelial model system show that the bacterium's major virulence factors CagA and VacA both play important roles in enabling H. pylori growth and microcolony formation on the apical cell surface, by mediating perturbation of host cell polarity and intracellular trafficking processes. We find that iron is one important micronutrient that H. pylori acquires from host cells during colonization of the polarized epithelium. CagA and VacA act in concert to affect the polarized process of transferrin/transferrin receptor recycling and iron uptake in the host cells, resulting in the mis-sorting of a subset of the transferrin/transferrin receptor complex to the colonizing bacteria on the apical cell surface. This process is functionally important for the bacteria, as downregulation of transferrin receptor expression resulted in a decreased ability of H. pylori to colonize the polarized epithelium. These studies establish the cell surface as a replicative niche, which presents challenges that require bacterial adaptation for its successful utilization. Our findings also illustrate the concept that contact-dependent bacterial virulence factors may be used for the perturbation of host cell physiology for the bacterium's benefit, allowing acquisition of needed factors directly from host cells, and colonization of the apical cell surface.

    The Hippo signaling pathway is rapidly gaining recognition as an important player in organ size control and tumorgenesis. This volume presents virtually all aspects of tumor biology because members of the Hippo Pathway have been associated with numerous well-established cell signaling pathways, just to name a few; Rho, Wnt, TGFbeta and p53. Hippo signaling is not solely involved in regulating "classic" tumor characteristics such as cell proliferation, survival and growth, but is also diversely involved in cell-autonomous and non-cell-autonomous differentiation, migration and organ size control. With the multitude of signaling events mediated by the Hippo pathway and the vastly different functions that it plays, it is evident that these tumor suppressors are unique governors of cellular homeostasis. This timely volume gathers wide-ranging and burgeoning information on the Hippo pathway and its role in cancer into an accessible format of a single book.With the multitude of signaling events mediated by the Hippo pathway and the vastly different functions that it plays, it is evident that these tumor suppressors are unique governors of cellular homeostasis.

    The immune response to a pathogen is a complex interplay between host factors aimed to eradicate the pathogen, and microbe virulence proteins designed to subvert the host. To successfully combat a pathogen, the host must identify the insult and activate an immune response tailored to eliminate the specific microbe. This entails cell signaling at the level of innate immunity to detect the pathogen and mount an immediate non-specific response, while also communicating to bystander cells to shape the scope of the adaptive arm of immunity. The work herein investigates how the intracellular signaling network is activated and perturbed across cell types and hematopoietic tissues during bacterial infection. An introductory background on the current knowledge in the field of immune signaling is provided in chapter 1. Antigen presenting cells detect pathogenic motifs via pattern recognition receptors including toll-like receptors. This triggers an intracellular signaling cascade with specific transcriptional consequences, including the production of cytokines. In turn, these cytokines alert additional cell types to activate specific signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) transcription factor family members. Thus, detection of a microbe initiates rapid signaling across leukocytes to set the stage for the immune response. Chapter 2 focuses on cell signaling experiments in a murine model for the onset of sepsis. Mice were acutely challenged with avirulent E. coli and Listeria monocytogenes to study the host response without pathogenic manipulation of host signaling by bacterial virulence factors. Bacterial challenge causes macrophages and dendritic cells to become attenuated in their ability to respond to TLR agonists, a hallmark of endotoxin tolerance. Also, it induces global dampening of the STAT response to cytokines across all cell types; splenocytes from challenged mice poorly respond to cytokine stimulation. Cytokines secreted by antigen presenting cells act on bystander cells and induced negative feedback, including SOCS expression and receptor endocytosis that prevent further STAT activation. Thus, bacterial recognition causes host immune activation followed by subsequent suppression of signaling. The work in chapter 3 transitions to a model of chronic infection with pathogenic Salmonella typhimurium. In addition to examining the innate response, this model enables investigation of adaptive immunity by monitoring the activation of T cells, their cytokine response profile, and TH-biasing by the transcription factors they express and cytokines they produce. During chronic infection, B cells and effector T cells undergo expansion but not contraction over the first 30 days, demonstrating that the immune system establishes a new equilibrium. However, the degree of cell expansion, as well as the ability of these cells to respond to cytokine, is quite variable across mice. These mice also have varied levels of bacterial burden, and the shape of the immune response denotes disease severity. High bacterial load is associated with trademarks of innate immunity such as elevated neutrophil numbers, serum cytokine levels, and the dampened STAT signaling observed during bacterial challenge in chapter 2. In contrast, the mice that control infection are enriched for markers of adaptive T cell immunity: high numbers of TH1 effector T cells, T cell proliferation, ability to respond to cytokines, and fewer regulatory T cells. Therefore, a strong adaptive response is correlated with containing the infection, while an innate response is indicative of high bacterial levels. This thesis concludes in chapter 4, with a discussion of how the findings fit in the context of cell signaling in other disease states. Leukemia and lymphomas, diseases of uncontained cell growth, are characterized by hyperactive cell signaling. In contrast, an activated immune response, such as during auto-immunity or in cancer infiltrating T cells, is marked by repressed ability to respond to cytokines. As inhibited cytokine responses were also observed during bacterial challenge and during severe chronic infection, it appears that a commonality amongst disease that activate an immune response is negative feedback to dampen further signaling and restrict inflammation.

    Streptococci are Gram-positive bacteria that cause a wide spectrum of diseases, such as pharyngitis, necrotizing fasciitis and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome, as well as rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease as sequelae. Antibiotics alone have not been able to control the disease and in spite of many efforts an effective vaccine is not yet available. A prerequisite for novel and successful strategies for combating these bacteria is a complete understanding of the highly complex pathogenic mechanisms involved, which are analyzed in this volume. In ten chapters, prominent authors cover various aspects including streptococcal diseases and global burden, epidemiology, adaptation and transmission, and molecular mechanisms of different diseases, as well as sequelae, vaccine development and clinical management. This book will serve as a valuable reference work for scientists, students, clinicians and public health workers and provide new approaches to meeting the challenge of streptococcal diseases.

    " This volume provides a set of reviews dedicated to the biology of Interleukin (IL)-10. It includes chapters on its importance for maintaining immune homeostasis in humans, its role in intestinal immunity and its functions during viral and bacterial infections. In addition, it presents reviews on the mechanisms linking innate microbial recognition to the production of IL-10 and on how IL-10 recognition by its receptor functions. The roles of T and B cells as relevant sources of IL-10 are also discussed, with an emphasis on the clinical opportunities offered by IL-10-producing Tr1 cells for the suppression of unwanted immunity. Finally, the functions of other cytokines of the IL-10 family are presented. Collectively, these articles provide a comprehensive overview of our current knowledge on one of the most important anti-inflammatory cytokines known to date."--Publisher's website.

    Iron Acquisition by the Genus Mycobacterium summarizes the early evidence for the necessity of iron in mycobacteria and the discovery of the mycobacterial siderophores mycobactin, carboxymycobactin, and exochelin. The structural characterization of the mycobacterial siderophores is described. The genes so far identified as essential for iron acquisition and maintenance of an infection by pathogenic mycobacteria are discussed. The potential role of siderocalin in iron gathering by M. tuberculosis is featured. Because new drugs for M. tuberculosis are needed, this brief also emphasizes the design of antibiotics that interfere with siderophore biosynthesis and the use of siderophore analogs and/or conjugates.

    One of the most promising new approaches for the prevention of HIV transmission, particularly for developing countries, involves topical, self-administered products known as microbicides. The development of microbicides is a long and complicated process, and this volume provides an overview of all the critical areas, from the selection of appropriate candidate molecules and their formulation, preclinical and clinical testing for safety and efficacy, strategies for product registration and finally, issues associated with product launch, distribution and access. The book will prove valuable to both those working in the field and all others who are interested in learning more about this product class, which has the potential to significantly impact the future of this devastating epidemic.

    The second edition of Microbiology of Waterborne Diseases describes the diseases associated with water, their causative agents and the ways in which they gain access to water systems. The book is divided into sections covering bacteria, protozoa, and viruses. Other sections detail methods for detecting and identifying waterborne microorganisms, and the ways in which they are removed from water, including chlorine, ozone, and ultraviolet disinfection. The second edition of this handbook has been updated with information on biofilms and antimicrobial resistance. The impact of global warming and climate change phenomena on waterborne illnesses are also discussed. This book serves as an indispensable reference for public health microbiologists, water utility scientists, research water pollution microbiologists environmental health officers, consultants in communicable disease control and microbial water pollution students. Focuses on the microorganisms of most significance to public health, including E. coli, cryptosporidium, and enterovirus. Highlights the basic microbiology, clinical features, survival in the environment, and gives a risk assessment for each pathogen. Contains new material on antimicrobial resistance and biofilms. Covers drinking water and both marine and freshwater recreational bathing waters.
