bacterial pathogenesis


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia.

bacterial pathogenesis

The development of a bacterial disease. There are three stages: entry and colonization in the host, bacterial invasion and reproduction with the production of toxic substances, and the response of the host. The mere presence of an organism in the body does not necessarily mean that disease will follow. This progression of the infection will depend upon a number of interacting factors, including the virulence and number of invading organisms and the ability of the host's immune system to destroy the bacteria.

But we've never known which of these two molecules was the more important for bacterial pathogenesis, and whether this belief was correct.
Contributors start by introducing the basic concepts behind the technology and some of the applications, including glass slide DNA microarrays and microarray platforms for protein studies, then turn immediately to such applications as the genome-wide binding profile of a DNA-associated protein, array-based comparative genomic hybridization, single nucleotide polymorphism arrays, in vitro analysis of gene expression, bacterial pathogenesis, functional annotation, agricultural research, and protein microarrays.
Stanley Falkow's investigations into the intimate relationships between bacteria and host cells followed his comment that, "The microbe is just trying to make a living." Structural Biology of Bacterial Pathogenesis, by Gabriel Waksman, Michael Caparon, and Scott Hultgren, is a state-of-the-art treatise describing the known molecular mechanisms by which bacterial pathogens actively probe, sense, and respond to their environment through 2-component systems and through sigma and anti-sigma factors.
