Sample text

64 Proper presentation of certain virulence-associated gene products on the microbial surface is now recognized to be as important to pathogenicity as the initial expression of these genes. Presentation entails export pathways, association with other periplasmic or surface factors, and sometimes macromolecular assembly at the surface and is also subject to regulation. Among bacterial pathogens, shared homology is apparent among families of proteins involved in these processes. One family consists of proteins that are known as chaperones and ushers, concepts first proposed in a model for the assembly of uroepithelium-adherent E.

At other times, the same genes may respond independently to other signals. Global regulatory networks are a common feature of microbial virulence as well as basic microbial physiology (Table 1-2). The complexity of virulence regulation in a single microbial pathogen is magnified by the coexistence of multiple interacting (“crosstalking”) systems and by regulons within regulons. P. aeruginosa, for example, contains genes for 55 sensors and 89 response regulators, whereas H. pylori contains genes for 4 and 7, respectively.

New chapters have been added, and all other chapters have been revised extensively, with tables, figures, and references updated. Among the 330 chapters is excellent coverage of such topics as microbial pathogenesis, infections in cancer patients, emerging infections, new antimicrobial agents, antibiotic resistance, travel medicine, vaccines, infections related to exotic pets, and important aspects of agents of bioterrorism. The online version of the book contains fully searchable text on the dedicated Expert Consult website.
