Handbook of Listeria monocytogenes
edited by Dongyou Liu

The first comprehensive compilation of knowledge in this area, Handbook of Listeria monocytogenes 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.

Features:

  • Examines the molecular mechanisms of Listeria's virulence and pathogenicity
  • Provides comprehensive coverage of Listeria diagnostic procedures
  • Explores the latest genetic and proteomic techniques for the study of Listeria
  • Reviews recent advances in Listeria immunity and vaccine strategies

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
