Understanding the molecular basis of bacterial invasion and of host cell adaptation to intracellular bacteria will provide fundamental insights into the pathophysiology of bacteria and the cell biology of the host. This book details specific examples of bacteria that are masters of manipulation of eukaryotic cell signaling and relates these events to the broader context of host-pathogen interaction. Written by experts in the field, it will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in microbiology, immunology, and biochemistry, as well as in molecular medicine and dentistry.
