Bacterial infections affect world health today as a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Pathogenic bacteria routinely command a broad spectrum of niches in the human host, making an understanding of pathogenesis mechanisms crucial to the development of prophylactics and treatment for bacterial diseases. A variety of in vitro methods, in vivo animal model systems and cutting-edge genomics assays have arisen in the effort to study bacterial pathogenesis and identify potential therapeutic targets. In Bacterial Pathogenesis, in-depth methods and state-of-the-art protocols are presented for investigating specific mechanisms of pathogenesis for a wide range of bacteria. This invaluable collection includes protocols to study host-pathogen interactions, animal models of infection, and novel approaches to identifying therapeutic targets designed to control infections. Up-to-date molecular typing methods for Staphylococcus aureus and a new model of streptococcal pharyngitis in non-human primates are also included. Bacterial Pathogenesis will prove an invaluable collection for microbiologists, immunologists, cell biologists and infectious disease clinicians - and indispensable to all science researchers interested in studying pathogenic bacteria and related disease processes.Clean the PCR reaction using the QIAquick PCR Purification Kit (Qiagen) to remove primers and polymerase, and ... sets specific to the pOK-target locus such that PCR will generate an amplicon of the entire pOK-target locus plasmid, with a anbsp;...
