The Comprehensive Sourcebook of Bacterial Protein Toxins 4th 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 toxins. Considerable progress has been made in understanding the structure, function, interaction and trafficking into cells, as well as mechanism of action of toxins. Bacterial toxins are involved in the pathogenesis of many bacteria, some of which are responsible for severe diseases in human and animals, but can also be used as tools in cell biology to dissect cellular processes or used as therapeutic agents. Novel recombinant toxins are already proposed in the treatment of some diseases, as well as new vaccines. Alternatively, certain toxins are also considered as biological weapons or bioterrorism threats. Given the multifaceted aspects of toxin research and the multidisciplinary approaches adopted, toxins are of great interest in many scientific areas from microbiology, virology, cell biology to biochemistry and protein structure. This new edition is written with a multidisciplinary audience in mind and contains 5 new chapters that reflect the latest research in this area. Other chapters have been combined, deleted and fully revised as necessary to deliver relevant and valuable content. Descriptions of relevant toxins as well as representative toxins of the main bacterial toxin families to allow for a better comparison between them. Focused chapters on toxin applications and common properties or general features of toxins.

Pore-forming toxins are virulence factors produced by a great variety of pathogenic bacteria ranging from the Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus to the Gram-negative Helicobacter pylory. The recent studies reviewed in this volume describe the progress that has been made in dissecting the different steps of the mode of action of these proteins which generally include binding to specific cell surface receptors, oligomerization into ring like structures and membrane perforation.

Over the past few decades the increase in bacterial resistance has led to the search for novel antibacterial therapies and a better understanding of virulence mechanisms used by pathogens. It has been shown that the interplay between pathogenic bacteria and the host is complex and finely balanced. Successful pathogens can manipulate host homeostasis and normal cell functions using a variety of molecular strategies. This volume of the Karger book series Contributions to Microbiology summarizes some of the most important bacterial

This book focusses on evolutionary, structural and functional aspects of pore-forming proteins, bringing together prominent researchers in the fields of structural biology and cellular and biophysical techniques. The focus is on the MACPF/CDC protein super family that was originally discovered because of unexpected structural similarity between a domain present in bacterial cholesterol-dependent cytolysins (CDC) and proteins of the membrane attack complex/perforin (MACPF) family. Members of the MACPF/CDC super family are crucial for many biological processes, being efficient
