    In recent years there has been significant attention paid on the endophytic research by various groups working within this domain. Mutualistic endophytic microbes with an emphasis on the relatively understudied fungal endophytes are the focus of this special book. Plants are associated with micro-organisms: endophytic bacteria and fungi, which live inter- and intra-cellularly without inducing pathogenic symptoms, but have active biochemical and genetic interactions with their host. Endophytes play vital roles as plant growth promoters, biocontrol agents, biosurfactant producers, enzymes and secondary metabolite producers, as well as providing a new hidden repertoire of bioactive natural products with uses in pharmaceutical, agrochemical and other biotechnological applications. The increasing interest in endophytic research generates significant progress in our understanding of the host-endophyte relationship at molecular and genetic level. The bio-prospection of microbial endophytes has led to exciting possibilities for their biotechnological application as biocontrol agent, bioactive metabolites, and other useful traits. Apart from these virtues, the microbial endophytes may be adapted to the complex metabolism of many desired molecules that can be of significant industrial applications. These microbes can be a useful alternative for sustainable solutions for ecological control of pests and diseases, and can reduce the burden of excess of chemical fertilizers for this purpose. This book is an attempt to review the recent development in the understanding of microbial endophytes and their potential biotechnological applications. This is a collection of literature authored by noted researchers having signatory status in endophytic research and summarizes the development achieved so far, and future prospects for further research in this fascinating area of research.

    Since their initial discovery in the 1970's, astroviruses have been recognized as a leading cause of enteritis in infants, the elderly, and immunocompromised people, and were known to be widespread in animals and birds. In recent years, and with the advent of pyrosequencing, there has been a virtual explosion in the number of newly identified astrovirus genotypes. With this has come an increased understanding in astrovirus biology, structure, epidemiology, immunology, and disease pathogenesis including the likelihood of extraintestinal and systemic infections. The advent of new diagnostic tests that detect all of the currently identify human astrovirus strains may prove that these viruses are more prevalent in populations than currently realized.This book will provide state-of-the-art information on our current understanding of astroviruses for researchers, medical and veterinary providers, and diagnosticians as prepared by the leaders in the respective fields. The goal is to bring the reader up to date on the state of knowledge on this constantly evolving and exciting field of virology.

    The extremely potent substance botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) has attracted much interest in diverse fields. Originally identified as cause for the rare but deadly disease botulism, military and terrorist intended to misuse this sophisticated molecule as biological weapon. This caused its classification as select agent category A by the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention and the listing in the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention. Later, the civilian use of BoNT as long acting peripheral muscle relaxant has turned this molecule into an indispensable pharmaceutical world wide with annual revenues >$1.5 billion.

    Listeria monocytogenes is a facultative intracellular pathogen that causes severe invasive disease in susceptible populations. Using in vivo bioluminescent imaging, it was recently discovered that this bacterium can colonize the murine gallbladder of otherwise asymptomatic mice. This finding was surprising as L. monocytogenes, after invasion of the intestines, was thought to survive only intracellularly in an infected host and in the gallbladder the bacteria lived extracellularly. It was also surprising that a bacterium could grow and replicate in the pure bile environment of the gallbladder lumen as bile is a potent antimicrobial compound. In this study, we characterized how Listeria monocytogenes is able to reach the gallbladder during infection and examined how this pathogen is able to survive in this environment. Using a mouse adapted L. monocytogenes which expresses a modified InlA capable of binding murine E-cadherin we were able to follow the kinetics of gallbladder colonization after oral infection using in vivo bioluminescent imaging. We then utilized surgical manipulation of the mouse host and repeated the oral infection to determine how L. monocytogenes reaches the gallbladder. Once we had determined the mechanism of gallbladder entry, we then utilized whole genome microarrays to characterize the transcriptome of L. monocytogenes during in vivo growth in the gallbladder and in freshly isolated murine bile. Finally, we attempted to determine what nutrients are utilized by L. monocytogenes during growth in bile and looked at the ability of other bacterial species to grow in this environment. Through these experiments we demonstrated regular asymptomatic gallbladder colonization by L. monocytogenes after oral infection and that L. monocytogenes reaches the gallbladder via the hepatic duct only after first causing systemic infection and escaping the liver. We also demonstrated that the lifestyle in the gallbladder is similar to that in the intestine with the exception of the need for bile resistance genes, and finally that it appears as though simple carbon sources may be utilized during bile growth and that bile may not be as toxic to bacteria as has been thought. Our work suggests that gallbladder colonization may not be exclusive to only L. monocyctogenes and Salmonella Typhi since other bacteria can grow, and in some cases better than L. monocyctogenes, in pure bile.

    "Presents recent research developments to aid fighting fungal infections The currently available means of combating fungal infections are still weak and clumsy. The application of fungal genomics offers an unparalleled opportunity to develop novel antifungal drugs. Interestingly, several novel antifungal drug targets have already been identified and validated. However, it is too early to expect any novel antifungal drug as drug discovery programs are still in their infancy. In addition to classical and genomic approaches to drug discovery, traditional knowledge derived from natural products and phytomedicine can provide a multitude of alternative modes of combating fungal infection. This book comprises 20 chapters on various aspects pertaining to fungal diseases in human and animals, their reservoir, fungal pathogenesis, their management and recent advances in their treatment. Issues of antifungal drug toxicity, especially nephrotoxicity, are also discussed. The development of resistance in fungal pathogens, including multidrug resistance and its mechanism, is dealt with in two chapters. Diverse diagnostic approaches to fungal infections are also reviewed. The combinational drug strategies used in combating invasive fungal infections are addressed in detail. The management of pulmonary mycoses in stem cell transplantation is also given special focus. Novel antifungal drugs (synthetic and herbal), fungal vaccines, and metabolic pathways as drug targets are discussed in detail in three different chapters. Subsequently the roles of innate immunity, cytokine therapy and immunomodulators in the treatment of fungal infections are elaborated upon. As novel drug delivery systems have a great potential for modifying the pharmacokinetics of medications, the last chapter takes this fact into consideration in its examination of state-of-the-art delivery systems in controlling fungal infections."--Publisher's website.

    The importance of the intestinal microbiota to the health of an organism is well recognized. Alterations in the composition of the microbiota are associated with a number of diseases. However, the extent to which the microbiota varies across healthy individuals and time and the causes of this variation are still not fully understood. In order to distinguish between microbial community states of health and disease, the range of healthy microbial communities must be determined. In addition, the effect of perturbations on the microbiota is an area of active research. Recent studies indicate that intestinal infections can have a significant impact on the composition of intestinal microbiota. However, the extent and duration of these changes during different infections have not been fully characterized. My aims were to characterize the range of healthy microbiota in an inbred mouse population over time and to determine the dynamics of alterations in the microbiota during disease. I also wanted to determine if certain characteristics of the microbiota make animals more or less susceptible to infection. In this work, 46 individual healthy mice were sampled over time to assess the range of microbial communities in health. A mouse model of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium infection was used to assess the impact of infection on the microbiota. Mice were sampled prior to infection and over the course of infection. This work finds that the microbiota of healthy mice varies significantly over time and among individuals. However, there are stable differences among individual mice, which may be established at the point of weaning when adult microbial communities develop. In addition, this work finds significant changes in the microbiota during infection that differ with the level of infection. This data also shows that there are some taxa whose abundance prior to infection correlates with outcome of infection. This work provides insights into the dynamics of the microbiota in health and disease and its impact on the health of the host.

    Congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is the most common intrauterine transmitted viral infection, with a tremendous impact on fetuses and newborns. In this book the history of this disease, its pathophysiological background, epidemiology and symptoms, as well as diagnostic and therapeutic strategies, will be discussed. Since economic aspects are gaining more and more importance in health politics, one chapter is dedicated to this issue in the context of congenital CMV infection. The content is based on the latest scientific findings and written in an understandable manner, allowing persons not working in the field of congenital CMV to also profit from it. Thus, this book is of interest for medical doctors, nurses, midwives, economists, but also for men and women who want to inform themselves about this topic.

    Corynebacterium glutamicum was discovered in Japan in 1956 as a natural glutamate producer. Its "microbial factory" qualities, such as its physiological plasticity and robust catalytic functionalities, have since facilitated the development of efficient production processes for amino acids, nucleotides and vitamins. This monograph illustrates how the information gleaned from complete genome sequencing allows the rational engineering of the entire cellular metabolism and how systems biology permits the further optimization of C. glutamicum as a biocatalyst. Aspects of gene regulation, metabolic pathways, sugar uptake, protein secretion, cell division and biorefinery applications highlight the enormous biotechnological and biorefinery potential.

    Francisella is a gram-negative bacterium that causes tularemia. It is capable of infecting a remarkably broad host range including humans, mammals, birds and fish via multiple different routes of infection, establishing a successful colonization event within the various organs. This facultative, intracellular pathogen is also capable of invading a broad range of host cell types ranging from macrophages to fibroblasts. This is an extremely fascinating facet of the bacterium. The ability of Francisella to infect such a wide range of hosts and cell types suggests that the bacterium either co-opts cellular mechanisms common to all hosts and cell types or has the requisite bacterial genes to adapt to many different intraorganismal environments, or both. We were interested in studying the diverse repertoire of interactions that may occur between the bacterium and its murine host. In this thesis, the transposon site hybridization (TraSH) negative selection strategy was applied in a range of in vivo and in vitro systems to identify novel host-pathogen interactions in Francisella. We subsequently demonstrated that Francisella require tryptophan for virulence specifically in the lungs due to lung-specific induction of a host innate immune molecule indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1. Alveolar macrophages may also deplete intracellular trytophan via a novel mechanism and microbial lung-specific requirement of tryptophan for virulence may be widely applicable to all bacterial species. We also demonstrate that Francisella hypercytotoxic mutants, unlike previously suggested, induce macrophage hypercytotoxicity due to increased bacteriolysis in the intracellular milieu. Identification and characterization of bacterial mutants that are attenuated under different in vitro and in vivo conditions have led to further insights into the interactions that occur between Francisella and its murine host.

    This volume presents recent developments in the novel drug development and potential of extremophilic cyanobacteria. It discusses how these tiny organism originated, produce oxygen that leads to evolution of life on the earth, how their survival strategies in extreme climatic conditions lead to diverse metabolic pathways, and the opportunity to use them to develop novel drugs. The book is comprised of five chapters, starting with the origin of cyanobacteria, their survival strategies under extreme conditions, and their capabilities to change metabolic activities.The second chapter explores the different metabolic pathways found in cyanobacteria and examines advances in this field and recent techniques like MALDI-TOF imaging and metagenomics tools as well as in silico techniques for rapid screening of secondary metabolites. Further chapters cover the glycomics of cyanobacteria, anticancer drug development, and some issues and challenges of using cyanobacteria to develop drugs. Extremophilic Cyanobacteria For Novel Drug Development provides insight into future perspectives in drug development and is a key resource for students, researchers and professionals in pharmacy, medicinal chemistry, pharmacognosy biotechnology, biology, and academics.

    This volume provides a state-of-the-art update on Fc Receptors (FcRs). It is divided into five parts. Part I, Old and New FcRs, deals with the long-sought-after Fc[micro]R and the recently discovered FCRL family and TRIM21. Part II, FcR Signaling, presents a computational model of Fc[epsilon]RI signaling, novel calcium channels, and the lipid phosphatase SHIP1. Part III, FcR Biology, addresses major physiological functions of FcRs, their glycosylation, how they induce and regulate both adaptive immune responses and inflammation, especially in vivo, FcR humanized mice, and the multifaceted properties of FcRn. Part IV, FcRs and Disease, discusses FcR polymorphism, FcRs in rheumatoid arthritis and whether their FcRs make macaques good models for studying HIV infection. In Part V, FcRs and Therapeutic Antibodies, the roles of various FcRs, including FcgRIIB and FcbRI, in the immunotherapy of cancer and autoimmune diseases using monoclonal antibodies and IVIg are highlighted. All 18 chapters were written by respected experts in their fields, offering an invaluable reference source for scientists and clinicians interested in FcRs and how to better master antibodies for therapeutic purposes.

    This SpringerBrief on Spx reviews the investigations that led to the discovery of Spx and its orthologs and ties together the results of various studies that have explored the function and control of spx in Gram-positive organisms. Spx of Bacillus subtilis has been extensively studied, but very little has been published about it. This book incorporates a number of studies that have been conducted in other Gram positive bacteria, which examined the role of Spx orthologs in stress response, bacterial development and virulence. The book contains an overview that will introduce the protein and its orthologous forms, its association with RNA polymerase, the species of Gram-positive bacteria in which it is found, and the conditions in which it is abundant and active. Spx is a member of a large group of proteins belonging to the ArsC/Spx protein family, so the review touches upon the bioinformatic support for the protein family composition and its meaning with regard to protein structure/function.

    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.

    Hepatitis C virus (HCV), a major causative agent of chronic liver disease, is spread throughout the world and around 170 million people are persistently infected. In this volume, world-leading experts in the field of HCV research have compiled the most recent scientific advances to provide a comprehensive and very timely overview of the various facets of HCV. The book starts with a discussion of the possible origin of HCV and its spread among the human population. The focus of the subsequent chapters is on available cell culture and in vivo models before shifting to the molecular and cellular principles underlying the viral replication cycle. These chapters are complemented by insightful descriptions of the innate and adaptive immune responses to HCV as well as the virus-associated pathogenesis. Finally, the development of antiviral therapies, which is closely linked with progress in basic research, and the implementation of those therapies into present and future daily clinical practice are highlighted.

    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.

    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.

    Listeria monocytogenes is still a major threat to public health. A new book in the Methods in Molecular Biology series, Listeria monocytogenes: Methods and Protocols addresses its titular pathogen with protocols and methodologies used in research to gain a better understanding of Listeria at a molecular level. The topics covered include sampling in order to isolate Listeria, methods for their identification and characterization, methods for gene manipulation, and, finally, methods for control of the organism. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective subjects, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Vital and authoritative, Listeria monocytogenes: Methods and Protocols aims to contribute to the harmonization of the methods used in the field and will therefore benefit all those interested in Listeria research.

    This book focuses on the function of antibodies in vivo. Recent years have seen an exponential growth in knowledge about the molecular and cellular mechanisms of antibody activity. These new results dramatically changed our view of how antibodies function in vivo. The importance of this class of molecules is demonstrated by the heightened susceptibility to infections of humans and mice with an altered capacity to generate pathogen specific antibody responses. Thus, the majority of our currently available vaccines, such as vaccines against influenza, measles and hepatitis focus on the generation of long lasting antibody responses. Recent evidence from a variety of in vivo model systems and from human patient cohorts has highlighted the exclusive role of cellular Fc-receptors for certain immunoglobulin isotypes and subclasses. With the recent discovery of a human Fc-receptor for IgM all different human immunoglobulin isotypes now have a cellular receptor, providing a feedback mechanism and link between antibodies and the cellular components of the immune system. Moreover it has become clear the complement and Fc-receptor system are tightly connected and regulate each other to ensure a well balanced immune response. Among the immunoglobulin isotypes IgG plays a very important protective role against microbial infections and also as a therapeutic agent to kill tumor cells or autoantibody producing B cells in autoimmune disease. Transfer of our knowledge about the crucial function of Fc-receptors has led to the production of a second generation of therapeutic antibodies with enhanced binding to this class of receptors. Binding of antibodies to Fc-receptors leads to the recruitment of the potent pro-inflammatory effector functions of cells from the innate immune system. Hence, Fc-receptors link the innate and adaptive immune system, emphasizing the importance of both arms of the immune system and their crosstalk during anti-microbial immune responses. Besides this pro-inflammatory activity immunoglobulin G (IgG) molecules are long known to also have an anti-inflammatory function. This is demonstrated by the use of high dose intravenous immunoglobulins as a therapeutic agent in many human autoimmune diseases. During the past five years several new insights into the molecular and cellular pathways of this anti-inflammatory activity were gained radically changing our view of IgG function in vivo. Several lines of evidence suggest that the sugar moiety attached to the IgG molecule is responsible for these opposing activities and may be seen as a molecular switch enabling the immune system to change IgG function from a pro- to an anti-inflammatory activity. There is convincing evidence in mice and humans that aberrant IgG glycosylation could be an important new pathway for understanding the impaired antibody activity during autoimmune disease. Besides this tremendous increase in basic knowledge about factors influencing immunoglobulin activity the book will also provide insights into how these new insights might help to generate novel therapeutic approaches to enhance IgG activity for tumor therapy on the one hand, and how to block the self-destructive activity of IgG autoantibodies during autoimmune disease on the other hand.

    Francisella tularensis is a facultative intracellular pathogen that causes the disease tularemia. The ability of F. tularensis to escape phagosomal degradation and replicate in the macrophage cytosol is central to its pathogenesis. The macrophage responds to the presence of cytosolic F. tularensis with the production of type-I interferons (IFN) and subsequent activation of the inflammasome. We conducted a forward genetic screen of a F. novicida transposon library to identify mutants that resulted in an increased or decreased cytosolic response in macrophages. We identified 164 F. novicida mutants that lead to increased type-I IFN production and inflammasome activation in macrophages. We also identified 74 mutants that resulted in decreased type-I IFN and inflammasome responses in macrophages. Finally, we identified AIM2 as the host receptor responsible for inflammasome activation in response to cytosolic F. novicida. We showed that lysing cytosolic F. novicida leads to release of bacterial DNA that triggers type-IFN through a pathway involving the adaptor STING. STING-dependent type-I IFN production increases the expression of AIM2, which complexes with the bacterial DNA and initiates inflammasome activation. We further demonstrate that AIM2 is critical for innate immunity to F. novicida infection in vivo. Thus we identified a novel bacterial ligand and novel cytosolic sensing components that play a role in the host defense to bacterial infections.

    Small RNAs that are 19-30 nucleotides in length use the genetic information encoded in their sequence to effect gene regulation in a sequence-directed manner. Infections with RNA viruses in plants, worms and flies generate short viral-derived RNAs ("vsRNAs") that map to the genome of the infecting virus. The regulated production of these vsRNAs and their engagement by the immune apparatus is essential for inhibiting viral growth, making vsRNAs important components of antiviral immunity in these organisms. RNA virus-derived vsRNA-mediated gene silencing is yet to be demonstrated in mammalian systems. We investigated diverse RNA virus-mammalian systems, and characterized changes in small RNA populations that occur during viral infection in animal cells using high-throughput sequencing. Due to the large number of samples to be analyzed, we designed DNA barcodes to 'tag' RNA samples from individual experiments, which facilitated sequencing in parallel from multiple samples. Our work demonstrated the generality of RNA virus-derived vsRNA production, and the ability of the cellular short RNA apparatus to engage these vsRNAs in worms during Flock House Virus replication, and in mammalian cells during infections with Hepatitis C, Polio, Dengue, Vesicular Stomatitis or West Nile virus. In addition to the appearance of vsRNAs during infection, we saw a number of specific changes in host-encoded small RNA (miRNA) profiles. For several infection models investigated in more detail, the RNAi and Interferon pathways modulated the abundance of vsRNAs. We found evidence for populations of vsRNAs that exist as duplexed small interfering RNAs ("siRNAs; " effectors of gene silencing) with zero to three nucleotide 3' overhangs. We also observed strand-selective loading of siRNAs onto Argonaute complexes, which are mediators of gene silencing. We quantitated the capacity of these HCVrep-derived vsRNAs to down-regulate target mRNAs in a sequence-specific manner in mammalian systems. We found that abundant HCVrep vsRNAs are not capable of mediating robust silencing (i.e. 2-fold or higher) of Luciferase reporters that have been engineered with vsRNA targets. Additionally, over-expression of siRNAs corresponding to five abundant vsRNAs failed to enhance silencing of Hepatitis C Virus mRNA. These results complement each other and suggest that in mammalian hosts, the virus may coexist with an abundant population of vsRNAs. Questions still remain as to whether robust gene silencing may be achieved by the cooperative action of abundant vsRNAs, or if abundant vsRNAs specifically inhibited from functioning in gene silencing, or alternatively, if they have novel roles in pathways distinct from gene silencing.

    In contrast to the substantial literature that focuses upon innate immune signaling in the gut, there is remarkably less known about the response of the airway to bacterial pathogens. The purpose of this book will be to review the current status of theunderstanding of the pathogenesis of acute bacterial pneumonia, slanted toward the mucosal immunology of these infections. It will describe, in general, the signaling cascades that control the proinflammatory response to bacterial infection in the lung. How innate immune signaling is orchestrated in response to specific common airway pathogens is addressed, targeting Staphylococus aureus (including MRSA), Streptococcus pneumoniae and Klebsiella pneumoniae. By describing the general immunological responses to conserved bacterial components and then detailing how specific organisms cause infection, this book provides a targeted but comprehensive review of this important topic.

    Cell death is an essential process in development, and a major contributor to a wide range of human diseases. Three major classifications of cell death, apoptosis, autophagic cell death and necrosis, have been described for years, and the existence of many more forms of cell death is now accepted. In, Necrosis: Methods and Protocols experts in the field provide a wide range of methods and techniques for the study of necrosis in vitro and in vivo. These include methods and techniques for the analysis of necrosis in mammalian cells, characterization of alternative forms of cell death: entosis and pyroptosis, and analysis of cell death in non-mammalian model sytems and mammalian tissues, including chapters on skin, brain, and heart. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. -- Publisher website.

    The second volume on One Health explains in detail how to implement three key aspects of the One Health paradigm food safety and security, national plans for a holistic one health approach, and relevant new technologies and approaches. The fourteen chapters, each by an internationally recognized authority, are organized into three sections of four or five chapters each, that break new ground in clarifying precisely how One Health can become an operational reality in local, national and international public health initiatives. Section three begins with an international overview on food safety and security. The importance of a One Heath approach is then explained in relation to four specific problems?the growing prevalence of antibiotic resistance, bovine spongiform encephalopathy and pathogenic E.coli. Section four begins with the role of the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) in promoting One Health. The formulation and implementation of national plans for implementing the One Health paradigm are then set out for Africa, the Western Pacific, Southeast Asia and Mongolia. The final section of this two volume book is devoted to implementing new technologies and new approaches to One Health. A wide-ranging analysis considers the importance of climate change and a social-ecological systems approach, as well as how to operationalize One Health, how to move from emergency response to prevention at source, and how to implement an educational strategy that builds a foundation for One Health in emerging disease management. It is anticipated that this two volume book will become a benchmark for practitioners of One Health, empowering a balanced multidisciplinary approach to the complexities of the human-animal-environment interface.

    Phosphoinositides (PIs) are minor components of cellular membranes that play critical regulatory roles in several intracellular functions. This book describes the main enzymes regulating the turnover of each of the seven PIs in mammalian cells, some of their intracellular functions and some evidence of their involvement in human diseases. Due to the complex inter-relation between the distinct PIs and the plethora of functions that they can regulate inside a cell, this book is not meant to be a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of PIs signalling but rather an overview on the current state of the field and where it could go from here. Phosphoinositide and inositol phosphates interact with and modulate the recruitment and activation of key regulatory proteins and in doing so control diverse functions including cell growth and proliferation, apoptosis, cytoskeletal dynamics, insulin action, vesicle trafficking and nuclear function. Initially, inositide signaling was limited to the PLC pathway; however, it is now clear that all the seven phosphoinositides and more than 30 different inositol phosphates likely have specific signaling functions. Moreover there is a growing list of proteins that are regulated by inositol signaling. This has raised the question as to how inositol signaling can control diverse processes and yet maintain signaling specificity. Controlling the levels of inositol signaling molecules and their subcellular compartmentalisation is likely to be critical. This meeting will bring together scientists from different backgrounds to discuss how understanding inositol signaling may be used to target complex human diseases that manifest themselves when inositol signaling is deregulated.

    Rotaviruses are the leading cause of severe dehydrating diarrhea in children worldwide. Rotavirus-induced immune responses, especially the T and B cell responses, have been extensively characterized; however, little is known about innate immune mechanisms involved in the control of rotavirus infection. Although increased levels of systemic type I interferon correlate with accelerated resolution of rotavirus disease, multiple rotavirus strains, including rhesus rotavirus (RRV), have been demonstrated to antagonize type I interferon production in a variety of epithelial and fibroblast cell types through several mechanisms, including degradation of multiple interferon regulatory factors by a viral nonstructural protein. Dendritic cells (DCs), a highly specialized subset of professional antigen- presenting cells, play a central role in the initiation of innate and adaptive immunity. Plasmacytoid DCs (pDCs), which secrete the type I interferons, as well as a variety of other cytokines and chemokines, have been documented to have multiple antiviral effects. These studies characterize the primary human pDC response to rotavirus, while elucidating the viral and cellular requirements for this response. Additionally, these studies demonstrate that type I interferon derived from primary pDCs is necessary and sufficient for B cell activation by rotavirus.

    Microbes can colonize harsh and dynamic environments. Often, this ability depends on rapid responses through directed motility. Members of the Epsilon proteobacteria are found in many 'extreme' environments, including the human stomach. We discovered that Helicobacter pylori establish bacterial colonies deep in the gastric glands, and identified a novel protein, ChePep, necessary to colonize this niche. By tracking the movement of single bacteria we found that mutants lacking ChePep cannot control the rotation of their flagella and swim with abnormally frequent reversals and even sustain bursts of movement backwards. Genetic experiments show that ChePep regulates flagellar rotation through the chemotaxis signaling system. By examining H. pylori within a microscopic pH gradient, we determined that ChePep is critical for normal chemotactic behavior. We expressed ChePep from the zoonotic pathogen Campylobacter jejuni, and the deep sea hydrothermal vent inhabitant Caminibacter mediatlanticus in H. pylori and found that ChePep is functionally conserved across the [epsilon]-proteobacteria. ChePep represents a new family of chemotaxis regulators unique to the [epsilon]-proteobacteria, and illustrates the differing strategies that microbes have evolved to control motility.

    MicroRNA (miRNA) genes, which encode an abundant class of ~22-nucleotide (nt), evolutionarily conserved small RNAs, control a fundamental layer of genetic programs at the post-transcriptional level. However, little is known about how the activity of miRNA genes is regulated and how the regulatory information controlling their activity is encoded. Interestingly, mature miRNAs can often be classified into large families consisting of members with identical seeds (nucleotides 2 through 8 of the mature miRNAs) and highly homologous ~22-nt mature miRNA sequences, but with divergent sequences and structural elements beyond their mature miRNAs. Here we investigated whether members of a miRNA gene family that encode identical or nearly identical mature miRNAs are functionally interchangeable in vivo and if not, why? We compare the activities of the mir-181 gene family in promoting double positive T cell development and show that miRNA genes that encode identical to nearly identical mature miRNAs can have distinct activities. The differences in activity between mir-181a-1 and mir-181c are largely determined by their unique primary/precursor-miRNA (pri/pre-miRNA) loop nucleotides, and the differences in activity between mir-181a-1 and mir-181b-1 are determined by both the pri/pre-miRNA loop and stem. Furthermore, the organization of mir-181a-1/b-1 in a cluster is important for its full activity. We also show that mir-181 family members can differentially regulate target genes quantitatively, and that some target genes can be upregulated. Taken together, we have demonstrated that regulatory information encoded in a miRNA gene beyond the mature miRNA plays a critical role in controlling the activity of the miRNA gene, suggesting that miRNA family members could have evolved different functions through their divergent miRNA gene sequences and structural elements beyond their mature miRNAs. Although, proteins may have evolved to recognize the structural and sequence elements of the pri/pre-miRNAs, we suggest that the regulatory information encoded in the structured pri/pre-miRNA may be directly interpreted through target and pri/pre-miRNA interactions.

    "Vibrio parahaemolyticus are common causes of diarrhoeal disease worldwide. These marine micro-organisms, native in estuarine waters globally, concentrate in the gut of filter-feeding molluscan shellfish, such as oysters, clams and mussels. Raw and undercooked seafood, including finfish, represent the principal vehicle of transmission to humans. This volume considers the applicability of an assessment of the public health impact of raw oyster consumption, developed in one country, to assess the public health risk associated with the consumption of raw oysters harvested in other countries where different growing and harvesting scenarios might exist. The approach is also applied to bloody clams and finfish to establish if such a risk assessment can also be adapted to other types of shellfish and finfish. This work is therefore divided in three parts focusing on (i) risk assessment of Vibrio parahaemolyticus in raw oysters, (ii) risk assessment of Vibrio parahaemolyticus in bloody clam and (iii) risk assessment of Vibrio parahaemolyticus in finfish. As well as providing insights on the risks associated with consumption of these commodities, the work also addresses how to make maximum use of existing and/or limited resources"--P. [4] of cover.

    Glycoprotein H (gH) plays an essential role in virus binding, entry and fusion of the Herpesviridae. Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is an important human pathogen that causes varicella (chicken pox) and herpes zoster (shingles). VZV gH function has not be analyzed in depth. gH function was demonstrated to be important for VZV pathogenesis in skin xenografts in vivo by administration of anti-gH mAb 206, a conformation dependent neutralizing antibody. Antibody administration prevented infection in 42% of skin xenografts, and reduced virus replication and lesion formation in the remaining skin xenografts. Antibody binding to gH altered gH localization following endocytosis, preventing gH trafficking to the trans-Golgi network for virus secondary envelopment. Antibody binding to gH within the virus envelope resulted in internalization of virus particles, possibly for targeted degradation. Deletion of ORF 37, which encodes gH, demonstrated that gH was essential for VZV pathogenesis. Mutational analysis demonstrated that the N-terminus of the protein formed a structural epitope required for efficient VZV pathogenesis in vivo. Several neutralizing anti-gH antibodies target this epitope. A region of the C-terminus was required for VZV pathogenesis, and for efficient virus-induced cell-cell fusion. Predicted α-helices that might act as heptad repeats or fusion peptides were also required for gH function and VZV pathogenesis. Cysteine residues were important for gH maturation and transport, and possibly for correct expression of gH on the cell surface. Altogether, these studies demonstrate the importance of structural and functional domains for gH-dependent fusion and VZV pathogenesis.

    This new volume in the series Emerging Infectious Diseases of the 21st Century is a novel book on the role of microbes in the pathogenesis of common and disabling non-infectious diseases. New insights have emerged over the past several years suggesting that our commensal microflora of the gut is extremely important in regulating physiological and immune functions of the body. Covered are the perturbations of the normal composition of our endogenous microbiota, influenced by diet and genetic predispositions, as well as the mechanisms to produce common disorders such as obesity, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, colon cancer, and atherosclerotic vascular diseases. Also explored is the evidence suggesting that predisposition to increasingly common afflictions such as asthma and multiple sclerosis is influenced, in combination with our genetic composition, by early life exposure to environmental microbes and the time of onset of common viral infections. Chapters provide the most recent information on these disorders with regards to epidemiology, current concepts on pathogenesis and mechanisms of their biology, recent research and data on the role of microbes, analysis of their validity, and conclusive remarks and areas for future research. The Role of Microbes in Common Non-Infectious Diseases is an excellent resource for both physicians and investigators from a broad range of disciplines that will help to stimulate new concepts of disease pathogenesis, and lead to the unraveling of their mechanisms of diseases and to novel treatments. About the Author Ignatius [Bill] Fong is a Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto and he is an author/ editor of 8 previously published books on Infectious Diseases. His research interests include topics in clinical infectious disease, HIV infection, and microbial-induced or -associated atherosclerosis.

    Cytokines are essential in the orchestration of effective innate and adaptive immune responses. Immunologists have focused extensively on identifying cytokines, and the cells that produce cytokines, yet there is still little understanding of the complex dynamics that govern cytokine responses in vivo during infection. Chapter 1 provides a general introduction to the cytokine signaling induced by innate and adaptive immune responses. Emphasis is placed on the activation of the signal transducers and activator of transcription (STAT) family of transcription factors by numerous cytokines because monitoring of STAT activation is a sensitive biochemical marker of the cytokine response. Chapter 2 describes the in vivo innate inflammatory response to poxvirus infection. Chapters 3 deals with adaptive immunity and specifically the cytokine responses elicited in vivo by antigen specific T cell activation. Chapter 2 presents experiments demonstrating that early after in vivo exposure to various microbe-associated molecular patterns, STAT1 and STAT3 activation is potently induced in splenic dendritic cells and T cells. Mice with targeted gene deletions were used to identify toll-like receptors (TLRs), interferons, and interleukin-6 (IL-6) as necessary for early STAT activation. These experiments with reductionist microbial ligands demonstrated the feasibility of analyzing the cytokine response to infection with an intact pathogen in vivo. Chapter 2 goes on to describe the innate cytokine response to viral infection in experiments comparing the immune response to two closely related poxviruses: vaccinia and ectromelia (mousepox). Early and robust STAT1 and STAT3 activation was found to strongly correlate with survival of poxvirus infection. In addition, different modes of innate immune recognition distinguished vaccinia from ectromelia infection with toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) activation being unique to immune recognition of vaccinia and not of ectromelia. These results suggest that different modes of early innate immune recognition could play an essential role in the containment of poxvirus infections and underlie the strict host species specificity of poxviruses. Chapter 3 deals with the paracrine cytokine responses elicited by antigen specific T cell activation in vivo. Using a T cell receptor (TCR) transgenic model we found profound and sustained activation of STAT5 in the Foxp3+ T regulatory cells (T regs) of mice immunized with a model peptide antigen after the adoptive transfer of antigen specific T cells. STAT5 activation in T regulatory cells was found to be interleukin-2 (IL-2) dependent and IL-2 signals elicited T regulatory cell proliferation and enhanced suppressive functions. Infection with vaccinia virus yielded a similar pattern of STAT5 activation in T regulatory cells, and STAT5 signaling was found to be even more potent under conditions of preexisting immune memory. These experiments revealed that antigen specific T-cell activation is intrinsically linked via paracrine IL-2 production to the activation of the polyclonal T reg repertoire, a response mechanism that could prevent autoimmunity. Chapter 3 also describes the regulation of autocrine IL-2 signaling during antigen specific T cell activation. Surprisingly, following TCR stimulation in vivo DO11 T cells did not display potent STAT5 activation even though these cells produced IL-2 and expressed the high affinity IL-2 coreceptor CD25. Only upon secondary TCR stimulation was robust autocrine IL-2 dependent STAT5 activation observed. Overall, these experiments demonstrate the nuances of IL-2/STAT5 signaling across numerous innate and adaptive cells populations revealing that in vivo T regulatory cells are extremely sensitive to antigen specific T cell activation. Targeting IL-2 signals specifically to antigen specific T cells while blocking IL-2 activation of T regs could enhance the efficacy of vaccination.

    The thymus is an evolutionarily ancient primary lymphoid organ common to all vertebrates in which T cell development takes place. Failing thymus function is associated with immunodeficiency and/or autoimmunity. In this volume, leading experts provide a comprehensive overview of recent advances in thymopoiesis research. The chapters cover the development of the thymic epithelial microenvironment, address the formation of a diverse and self-tolerant repertoire of T cell receptors as the basis for cellular immunity, discuss the mechanisms by which progenitor cells colonize the thymus and detail the molecular basis for T lineage decisions. The reviews illustrate the important role of the multifaceted process of thymopoiesis for adaptive immunity.

    Toxoplasma gondii is an obligate, intracellular parasite of the Apicomplexan phylum that is able to infect nearly all warm-blooded vertebrates. This capability for survival in a variety of host niches is reflected in the diversification of Toxoplasma strains. Strains differ dramatically in their interaction with hosts, and a fruitful approach towards understanding the molecular underpinnings of disease has been to identify and characterize drivers of strain-specific differences in host response. Chapter 1 provides a general introduction to Toxoplasma gondii and its ability to modulate host immunity, with special attention given to what is known about the mechanisms behind strain-specific phenotypes and the role of one particular player, ROP16. Chapter 2 describes experiments demonstrating that Toxoplasma secretes a polymorphic tyrosine kinase, ROP16, that can directly phosphorylate host STAT6. These experiments made use of a targeted disruption of the ROP16 locus in Type I parasites to identify ROP16-dependent signaling pathways, and used biochemical approaches to dissect the mechanism by which ROP16 is able to induce rapid STAT6 activation. Chapter 3 describes work demonstrating that ROP16 activation of STAT6 directs murine macrophage polarization towards an alternatively activated (M2) phenotype. In Chapter 4, the avian host response to Toxoplasma is examined to determine whether strain-specific differences in host response might be inverted in non-mammalian hosts. We show that strain-specific transcriptional host response, as well as transcriptional host response modulated by ROP16, appears very similar in chickens as in mice and humans. This suggests that variance between mammalian and avian host species in general may not be the source of selective pressure for the success of these common strains, or of ROP16's variability. Chapter 5 concludes with a discussion of future directions for further characterization of ROP16's role in modulating host response. We show that ROP16 interacts with host chromatin and suggest that investigation of ROP16's function in the host nucleus might yield further molecular insights as to how Toxoplasma is able to co-opt host cells and influence the course of infection.

    "Viruses are now considered to play major roles in the evolution of life. Because they have genes that are not found in any cellular organism they seem to be remnants of early stages of life on earth. Besides their disease causing features and actions as genetic parasites viruses have lifestyles that are clearly symbiotic and even symbiogenetic. Increasing empirical data suggest that some viruses such as endogenous retroviruses and non-retroviral RNA viruses and even DNA viruses prefer cellular genomes as habitat. They determine genetic host (group) identity and genetic host features. Viruses and virus-related modules such as mobile genetic elements and other repeat sequences identified in intronic regions of host genomes play important roles in gene regulation and genetic content (re)arrangement. This book exemplifies some astonishing key features of viruses acting as essential agents of life."--Publisher.

    Will address an important, yet underrepresented, topic. The correlation between viruses and atherosclerosis has been a focal point of the authors work, for a number of years. This volume will explore the relationship between different viral strains and atherosclerosis. It will begin by describing the hypothesis and denoting the mechanisms of virus-driven atherosclerosis, then expanding on the subject by focusing on different virus strains from Herpes, to Epstein-Barr, to the triad of Hepatitis viruses, et al on a chapter-by-chapter basis. While there are books, albeit few, that cover particular viral strains and their relationship to cardiovascular diseases, this work will be unique in its scope by considering multiple strains of viruses, making it a repository of information on the topic; a truly comprehensive volume.
