Cytokines are regulatory proteins that act as intercellular communication signals in a variety of processes, including embryonic development, haematopoiesis, stress, inflammation, immunity and tissue repair. Studies since the early 1980s have established the vital role of cytokines in humans and rodent models for the immune, endocrine and neuronal systems. More recently, attention has turned to the cytokines of animals of veterinary importance. This book addresses basic research on cytokines and its clinical potential for veterinary medicine. Cytokines in cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, cats, dogs and birds are considered. It is shown how recent knowledge has exploded, particularly through the use of recombinant DNA and PCR technologies. The role of cytokines in the pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy of animal diseases is reviewed, as is the utility of animal models to investigate diseases analogous to those in humans.It is shown how measurements of cytokines might be used as immunological monitors of disease progression and prognosis, how their administration to production animals might improve health status and how they might be used as vaccine adjuvants or as adjuncts to chemotherapy. Written by leading authorities from Europe, North America, Africa and Australia, the book is essential for research workers in veterinary microbiology and immunology, as well as medical scientists interested in applying this work to human health.

Genetic investigations and manipulations of bacteria and bacteriophage have made vital contributions to our basic understanding of living cells and to the development of molecular biology and biotechnology. This volume is a survey of the genetics of bacteria and their viruses, and it provides students with a comprehensive introduction to this rapidly changing subject. The book is written for upper level undergraduates and beginning graduate students, particularly those who have had an introductory genetics course.
The fifth edition has been extensively revised to reflect recent advances in the field. The book now has a reader-friendly look, with end-of-chapter questions, "Thinking Ahead" and "Applications" boxes to challenge students’ comprehension and insights. A complete glossary of commonly used terms has been revised and expanded.

This concise yet comprehensive text surveys the field of bacterial metabolism in terms useful to students and researchers. Emphasis is on those metabolic reactions occurring only in bacteria. Thus, the book describes in detail the energy metabolism of the various groups of bacteria. In addition, it examines pathways used by bacteria for the degradation of organic compounds, the synthesis of cellular constituents, the regulation of bacterial metabolism and the fixation of molecular nitrogen.

In the twenty first century, the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus continues to be a global threat to human and animal health. There is currently no vaccine for preventing S. aureus infections and the bacterium has developed resistance to many, if not most, antibiotics, hence the therapeutic options are rapidly disappearing. The genetic and physiological flexibility that allows this commensal bacterium to become a powerful pathogen and elucidating the myriad of mechanisms it employs to avoid the host and/or antimicrobials are important areas of research.
This book brings together respected S. aureus experts from around the world to provide a timely overview of staphylococcal research. Topics covered include: medical significance; genetic variation; virulence factors; metabolism; proteomics; cell wall assembly; antibiotic resistance; genetic regulation; and immune response.
Essential reading for scientists working with staphylococci. This text is an excellent introduction for entry level scientists, as well as those seeking a deeper understanding of this critically important bacterial pathogen.

Antibiotics are familiar drugs to us all, so familiar that we may take them for granted. They allow us to survive life-threatening infections, and allow us to protect the animals we farm for food. Many antibiotics have now become ineffective against common diseases, and there are few alternative treatments to replace them. In this topical popular science book, Laura Bowater, Professor of Microbiology Education and Engagement at Norwich Medical School, considers the past, present and uncertain future of antibiotics.
This book begins by looking back at how infectious diseases, such as smallpox and the plague, were able to wreak havoc on populations before the discovery of the first antibiotics. These then revolutionised the medical world. In an engaging and accessible style, Professor Bowater takes the reader through how antibiotics are made, how bacteria are able to mutate and develop resistance and she explains why there is now a lack of new antibiotic drugs coming to market.
What will a future of continued antibiotic resistance look like? How can human activities prevent the rise of ‘superbugs'? Professor Bowater highlights the need for universal cooperation in order to tackle this global health challenge, which, if not addressed, could transport us back to the medical dark ages.
