            Stress Biology of Cyanobacteria: Molecular Mechanisms to Cellular Responses

            Stress Biology of Cyanobacteria: Molecular Mechanisms to Cellular Responses (Paperback)

            A significant component of many different ecosystems, cyanobacteria occupy almost every niche of the earth, including fresh and salt waters, rice fields, hot springs, arid deserts, and polar regions. Cyanobacteria, along with algae, produce nearly half the global oxygen, making a...ssessment of their ecophysiologies important for understanding climate impacts and potential remediation. Stress Biology of Cyanobacteria: Molecular Mechanisms to Cellular Responses is a compilation of holistic responses of cyanobacteria, ranging from ecological and physiological to the modern aspects of their molecular biology, genomics, and biochemistry. Covering almost every aspect of cyanobacterial stress biology, this book is divided into two parts: Bioenergetics and Molecular Mechanisms of Stress Tolerance and Cellular Responses and Ecophysiology. The first few chapters focus on the molecular bioenergetics of photosynthesis and respiration in cyanobacteria, and provide a clear perspective on different stress tolerance mechanisms. Part I also covers the effect of specific stresses-including heavy metal, high and low temperature, salt, osmotic, and UV-B stress-on a wide range of vital physiological, biochemical, and molecular processes of cyanobacteria. Part II describes mechanisms of symbiosis, stress-induced bioproducts, and the role of environmental factors on nitrogen fixation, which along with photosynthesis is a major contributor to the current geochemical status of the planet. The text also covers mutation and cyanobacterial adaptation, and the most widely studied cyanotoxin, microcystin, which has effects on both human and animal health. With contributions from experts around the world, representing the global importance of cyanobacteria, this book provides a broad compilation of research that deals with cyanobacterial stress responses in both controlled laboratory conditions as well as in their natural environment.

            The objective of this book is to present a critical review and evaluation of the so-called conventional methods currently being used for bacterial identification, as well as to discuss the new approaches for the detection and identification of bacteria. Morphological, biochemical..., and serological methods of detection and identification of bacteria in clinical specimens are emphasised, and current methods of characterization and enumeration of bacteria in air, water, milk, and other food materials are also described.

            The Metabolism of Arsenite

            Arsenite contamination of drinking water is a major cause of chronic illness and mortality in many countries around the world, but until recently little was known of the processes determining its movement and concentration. Bacterial oxidation of arsenite was first described in 1...918 and thought to be a means of detoxification. It was not until 2000 that the first autotrophic arsenite-oxidising bacterium was isolated and shown to gain energy from arsenite oxidation. Since then a wide range of such bacteria has been isolated: aerobes and anaerobes, heterotrophs and autotrophs; thermophiles, mesophiles and psychrophiles. The literature on the topic has grown rapidly. This book reviews the new understanding of the diversity and abundance of such organisms, their role in arsenic cycling in the environment and their possible relations with arsenic-dependent diseases in humans. After a brief overview of arsenic metabolism, and an examination of the world 's most contaminated site Giant Mine the main body of the book concerns the cellular machinery of arsenite oxidation. Topics treated in the book are: - aerobic and anaerobic arsenite oxidation - enzymes, genes, and the regulation of those genes expression - comparative genomics, phylogeny and evolution of the arsenite oxidase genes - microbial arsenite oxidation: bioremediation - the construction of biosensors for quality control of drinking water and measuring industrial contamination

            The future prospects of probiotics lie in the successful application of individual strains with specific beneficial effects on the host. This development implies that not only the most robust strains are selected but also strains with a promising probiotic function with moderate ...or high sensitivity to processing stresses. This also means an increasing variety of probiotic strains with different functions. Therefore the processing of probiotics becomes an important issue. The strains have to be cultivable and proper growth conditions have to be known. Another very important step in processing is the preservation step. This includes either the freezing and frozen storage or the drying and storage in powder form. The fermentation, drying, and storage processes are highly interrelated. Therefore a holistic approach has to be chosen for the production of highly effective probiotic formulation. The book comprises state-of-the-art knowledge on isolation and characterization of probiotics as well as processing (fermentation, freezing, drying, and storage) and application of probiotics in different food products. This book will serve as a guidebook to researchers, technologists, and industry professionals in the field of probiotics.

            Once feared as a deadly intracellular bacterium with the extraordinary capacity to survive a wide array of arduous external stressors, Listeria monocytogenes is increasingly recognized as a preferred vector for delivering anti-infective and anti-cancer vaccine molecules. A reliab...le, single-source reference on the fundamental aspects of this bacterium is crucial to support future study and further the advancement of biomedical sciences and intervention strategies. Drawn from an international panel of scientists with notable expertise in their respective fields, the Handbook of Listeria monocytogenes is divided into four sections: Section I discusses the biology and pathogenicity of this bacterium, including epidemiology and stress responses. Section II demonstrates identification and detection techniques such as phenotypic and genotypic identification, strain typing, and virulence determination. Section III details the current knowledge of genetic manipulation of Listeria, including comparative genomics, genomic divisions, epidemic clones and population structure, and analysis of cell envelope proteins. Section IV covers innate and adaptive immunity against Listeria, and examines the use of this bacterium for anti-infective and anti-cancer vaccine development. The first comprehensive compilation of knowledge in this area, this handbook is an indispensable reference for anyone embarking on the path of manipulation of Listeria as either a model for the study of the host-bacterium relationship or as a tool for delivering protective molecules to cytoplasm.
