Surface Structures of Microorganisms and Their Interactions with the Mammalian Host Edited by E. Schrinner, M. H. Richmond, G. Seibert, U. Schwarz This book discusses the interactions that occur between the surface layers of microorganisms and the mammalian "host". Particular emphasis is placed on the field of microbial infection and pathogenicity, whereby yeasts, fungi and protozoa are considered in addition to bacteria. Other topics treated include bacterial endotoxins and cell wall degradation products. The twenty contributions to this book were written by a wide range of specialists from different countries. They offer an international and interdisciplinary compilation of current knowledge in this field.
