By Richard J. Lamont

Realizing the molecular foundation of bacterial invasion and of host telephone variation to intracellular micro organism will supply primary insights into the pathophysiology of micro organism and the telephone biology of the host. This ebook information particular examples of micro organism which are masters of manipulation of eukaryotic telephone signaling and relates those occasions to the wider context of host-pathogen interplay. Written by way of specialists within the box, it is going to be of curiosity to researchers and graduate scholars in microbiology, immunology, and biochemistry, in addition to in molecular drugs and dentistry.

1996, 1997). , 1996). For induction of large-scale actin rearrangements and large membrane protrusions sufficient to engulf several bacterial particles simultaneously, cellular signals evoked by Shigella effectors such as IpaA, IpaC, IpgD, and VirA appear to be necessary (Fig. 4). , 1998). , 1995). , 1997). IpaA chihiro sasakawa 36 IpaA secreted via the TTSS upon cell contact has been indicated to modify the Shigella-induced entry foci, and an ipaA mutant induced disorganized filopodial protrusions (Fig.

The subset of genes together with other genes coding for the secreted effectors, chaperones, and regulators exist as a PAI, which potentially transposes horizontally in different species of bacteria, thus distributing among many Gram-negative pathogenic bacteria, where some of the PAI are located on the chromosome and some on a plasmid. In fact, there is considerable homology between the proteins of the TTSS in different pathogens (Hueck, 1998). Of note, some of the proteins of TTSSs also share significant similarity to the components of the bacterial flagella export machinery.

CHAPTER 2 Shigella invasion Chihiro Sasakawa 25 INVASION Shigella invasion and the host inflammatory responses Shigella cause bacillary dysentery (shigellosis), a disease provoking a severe inflammatory diarrhea in humans and primates. In tropical areas of developing countries, shigellosis is endemic and a major killer of children under 5 years of age. Shigellosis occurs following ingestion of a very small number (100–1000) of bacteria, thus permitting easy spread of the disease by person-to-person contact as well as by the drinking of contaminated water.
