Molecular Mechanisms in Legionella Pathogenesis: 376 by Hubert Hilbi

By Hubert Hilbi

Legionnaires’ sickness, a very likely deadly kind of pneumonia essentially affecting aged and immuno-compromised people, is because of the ever-present environmental bacterium Legionella pneumophila. This ebook bargains authoritative studies of alternative elements of its virulence, concentrating on comparative phagocyte an infection, virulence gene law, biochemical features of effector proteins and mobile pathogen-host interactions, in addition to host responses and immunity to L. pneumophila. Taken jointly, the contributions during this compilation offer a state of the art evaluation of present insights into the molecular pathogenesis of the opportunistic and possibly deadly pathogen L. pneumophila.
