Contents Cover; Half-title; Series-title; Title; Copyright; Contents; Contributors; Preface; CHAPTER 1 The dendritic cell in bacterial infection: Sentinel or Trojan horse?; CHAPTER 2 CD1 and nonpeptide antigen recognition systems in microbial immunity; CHAPTER 3 The NRAMP family: co-evolution of a host/pathogen defence system; CHAPTER 4 Evasion of complement system pathways by bacteria; CHAPTER 5 Bacterial immunoglobulin-evading mechanisms: Ig-degrading and Ig-binding proteins; CHAPTER 6 Evasion of antibody responses: Bacterial phase variation
Summary Over the past decade researchers have shown that bacteria have evolved many ways of evading immunity and hence causing infection. Our present understanding of these mechanisms is described in this book, which will appeal to graduate students and researchers in microbiology, immunology, as well as in pharmacology and molecular medicine
