About the Authors
  • Adhesion is the crucial first stage in any infectious disease. It is therefore important to fully understand the mechanisms underlying bacterial adhesion so that we may be able to develop methods of maintaining our normal (protective) microflora, and of preventing pathogenic bacteria from initiating an infectious process. This book describes the bacterial structures responsible for adhesion and the molecular mechanisms underlying the adhesion process. A unique feature is that it also deals with the consequences of adhesion for both the adherent bacterium and the host cell/tissue to which it has adhered.

    • Describes bacterial adhesion to host cells and tissue purely at the molecular level
    • Written by leading experts in the field to provide an overview of the topic
    • Uniquely, deals with the consequences of adhesion - both the effects on the bacteria and the effects on the host cell/tissue - as well as the mechanisms

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...this volume is a unique publication. The authors are to commended for this timely and important endeavor...the book provides a great amount of of very useful information on the mechanisms, regulation, and molecular consequences of bacterial adhesion...the book would certainly be of interest to a broad population of microbiologists and graduate students."
