Description of Bacterial Stress Responses 2nd Edition (PDF)

Bacterial Stress Responses 2nd Edition by Gisela Storz & Regine Hengge is a great Bacteriology book available for (eBook) PDF download. A decade has passed since the first edition of the Bacterial Stress Responses book was published, and the time has come for a new edition. Reflecting back, an astonishing amount has been learned about bacterial stress responses in the past ten years. Major developments include new ways of thinking about regulation. It has become clear that there is far more posttranscriptional regulation than initially imagined, by regulatory small RNAs and riboswitches as well as by proteolysis.

The genome-wide identification of transcription regulators and their target genes in a broad range of organisms has also allowed scientists to think about regulatory networks on a much larger scale. General regulatory principles, which have come to be better understood and underlie all stress responses, are the focus of the first section of the new edition.

The second and third sections of this edition illustrate how much more we now know about both the specific and general stress responses. Many more regulators and target genes and connections between different responses have been identified. In addition, the physiological roles of many of the target genes are better understood. The research on extremely complex general stress responses, which encompass hundreds, if not thousands of genes, has revealed how general stress responses are comprised of highly integrated regulatory networks, modulated at the levels of transcription, transcript stability, translation, protein activity, protein degradation and by the production or decay of small signaling molecules. Significant insights into how bacteria survive stress conditions by undergoing changes of their state or morphology or cell surface have also been obtained. These topics discussed in the first three sections provide background for the last three sections, including the fourth part of the book focused on how stress responses affect the interactions between bacteria and host cells.
