The Comprehensive Sourcebook of Bacterial Protein Toxins, Fourth Edition, contains chapters written by internationally known and well-respected specialists.

Bacterial protein toxins book book contains chapters devoted to individual toxins, as well as chapters that consider the. This book describes the major achievements and discoveries relevant to bacterial protein toxins since the turn of the new century illustrated by the discovery of more than fifty novel toxins (many of them identified through genome screening).

Bacterial protein toxins act either at the level of the cell surface or on targets in the cytosol. Superantigens and toxins containing lytic activity exert their action at the level of the cell. Designed for newcomers to the field of toxins, this important volume is intended to show how these proteins work while providing an up-to-date review of the field.

Bacterial Protein Toxins describes Bacterial protein toxins book aspects of the biology of toxins, including their synthesis and secretion from the bacterial cell, their travels to and into the target host cell, and their modes of attacking the host.

"This volume covers the very current aspects of up-to-date bacterial toxicology and comprehensively reviews the most important bacterial protein toxins such as the intracellular acting toxins which exhibit enzyme activity, as well as those toxins that interact with cell plasma membranes by damaging the membranes (pore formation) or stimulating cell receptors Bacterial protein toxins book.

Bacterial toxins that act inside cells interact very specifically with key components of the cell and some even manipulate the cell in subtle ways for their own purposes. These potent toxins, described in this book, will be of interest to both microbiologists and cell Range: £ - £ Bacterial toxins play an important role in infectious diseases.

Several are amongst the most potent biological agents known to man. Cholera, pertussis, Bacterial protein toxins book, clostridium and tetanus toxins are all produced by bacteria. In many cases, it is the toxin produced and not the infectious agent itself that causes pathology.

Botulinum toxin has now of course found clinical application as botox. Bacterial toxins are classified into two major types: Endotoxins and exotoxins. Endotoxins are specifically referred to as cell-associated toxins—non-protein lipopolysaccharides associated with the cell wall of Gram negative bacteria.

They act at, or near, the bacterial growth site. The Ras superfamily of small GTP-binding proteins as targets for bacterial toxins / Patrice Boquet ; 3. Molecular, functional and evolutionary aspects of ADP-ribosylating toxins / Mariagrazia Pizza, Vega Masignani and Rino Rappuoli ; 4.

Glucosylating and Deamidating Bacterial Protein Toxins, Klaus AktoriesPrice: $ The Comprehensive Sourcebook of Bacterial Protein Toxins 4th Edition, contains chapters written by internationally known and well-respected specialists.

Here we will briefly introduce the diversity of bacterial protein toxins and then focus on new advances made on toxins acting on intracellular host targets. Bacterial protein toxins can be classified into several functional groups despite their diverse structures and modes of action (Fig.

1) (for general reviews, see Alouf and Popoff ).Cited by: Bacterial Protein Toxins by K. Aktories,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. Bacterial toxins damage the host at the site of bacterial infection or distanced from the site of infections.

Bacterial toxins can be single proteins or organized as oligomeric protein complexes and are organized with distinct AB structure-function properties. The A domain encodes a catalytic activity; ADP-ribosylation of host proteins is the earliest post-translational modification Cited by: Bacterial Toxins: Methods and Protocols consists of two sections: one on protein toxins (15 chapters) and one on endotoxins (5 chapters).

Each s- tion is introduced by an overview article (Chapters 1 and 16). The protocols collected represent state-of-the-art techniques that each have high impact on future bacterial toxin research. DNA-DAMAGING TOXINS. A number of bacterial protein toxins damage DNA and, by means of this action, are thought to be related to cancer development.

Up to now, only toxins produced by intestinal bacteria have been reported to exert such activities. In this context, Escherichia coli is, to date, the dominant producing bacterium (Elliott et by:   The Comprehensive Sourcebook of Bacterial Protein Toxins, Fourth Edition, contains chapters written by internationally known and well-respected specialists.

This book contains chapters devoted to individual toxins, as well as chapters that consider the different applications of these Pages: Microbial toxins are toxins produced by micro-organisms, including bacteria and fungi.

Microbial toxins promote infection and disease by directly damaging host tissues and by disabling the immune system. Some bacterial toxins, such as Botulinum neurotoxins, are the most potent natural toxins known. However, microbial toxins also have important uses in medical science.

Bacterial Protein Toxins by Drusilla L. Burns,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. This chapter discusses the molecules that have been classically known as bacterial toxins; the last section mentions some recently identified molecules that cause cell intoxication and have many but not all of the properties of classical toxins.

Bacterial proteins are proteins from which any bacterium may be comprised in its natural state. Subcategories. This category has the following 4 subcategories, out of 4 total. Bacterial pore forming protein toxins are widespread among bacterial pathogens and opportunistic pathogens. Their roles in disease progression are varied and complex.

In this review the cholesterol dependent cytolysins (CDCs) and the related membrane attack complex/perforin (MACPF) protein families, as well as Staphylococcus aureus α-hemolysin.

Cutting-edge and geared to producing successful experimental results, Bacterial Toxins: Methods and Protocols provides investigators with a first-rate collection of readily reproducible methods designed to help today's bacterial toxin investigators - both novice and expert - utilize a wide array of powerful research tools.

The major weapons utilized by bacterial pathogens are protein toxins and effectors secreted via specific bacterial secretion systems, including type I-VII secretion apparatuses. In recent years, great advances have been achieved in understanding how bacterial toxins and effectors subvert immune signaling and cellular processes of by: 5.

Examples of bacterial toxins by bacteria colonizing wound or mucous membrane 1) Cholera Toxin - V. cholerae binds to cells in small intestine and synthesizes toxin that acts on the mucosal cells 2) Diphtheria Toxin - C. diphtheriae colonizes the throat and produces diphtheria toxin. However, all bacterial protein toxins interact first with cell membranes by recognizing specific receptors, which are a lipid or another molecule but anchored to the lipid bilayer.

When bound to their receptor, some toxins act locally at the cell membrane, notably by triggering pore formation across the lipid by:.
