Description

A survey of research conducted over the past 50 years. * Examines the advances in technology and the recent availability of sequences of microbial genomes that have led to an explosion of knowledge in the field. * Offers insight into development and future directions that will fascinate graduate and advanced undergraduate students and equip instructors in pathogenesis and infectious diseases. * Discusses the structures, chemical properties, and biosynthesis of the microbial products, such as siderophores and hemophores used by these organisms to acquire iron, and explores the transport of these compounds into gram-negative bacteria. * Covers iron transport in the prototype, E. coli K-12, iron transport systems in selected pathogenic microorganisms, and iron transport in ecology. This title is published by the American Society for Microbiology Press and distributed by Taylor and Francis in rest of world territories.
