Description

Microbial Toxins, A Comprehensive Treatise, Volume IIA: Bacterial Protein Toxins provides a comprehensive discussion of various aspects of bacterial toxins. The book's 10 chapters discuss the following: botulinum toxin; tetanus toxin; Clostridium perfringens toxins types A, B, C, D, and E; cholera toxins; the exotoxin of Shigella dysenteriae; protein toxins from Bordetella pertussis; Salmonella typhimurium and Escherichia coli neurotoxins; toxins of Proteus mirabilis; and Listeria monocytogenes toxin. Each chapter covers the nature of the toxin, toxin production and purification, and mode of action.
