This volume delivers a compendium of detailed protocols to the research community in order to aid in the investigation and discovery of Yersinia
virulence mechanisms using important in vivo
and in vitro
infection models, which have led to major advances in the field and in our understanding of Yersinia
pathogen-host interactions. Beginning with a section on mouse models, the book continues with chapters covering the monitoring of bacteria during infection, invertebrate models, as well as Yersinia
interaction with immune cells and immune signaling. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology
series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Comprehensive and authoritative, Pathogenic Yersinia: Methods and Protocols provides a single source for researchers seeking to better understand these pathogens and the diseases they produce in humans.
