Chemical Communication Among BacteriaBook - 2008
The latest findings on chemical communication among bacteria and potential areas for future research.Includes four sections that address cell-cell signaling during development and DNA exchange; signaling in relationship to humans, animals, and plants; production and detection of chemical signals; and eukaryotic quorum sensing. Presents new discoveries, including the structures of three bacterial signal synthases, signal receptors, mechanisms of signal transduction, pathways, and the expression of target genes. Provides a comprehensive overview of signal synthesis, detection, and its impacts on bacterial behavior.
