Book Description :

This volume focuses on antibiotics research, a field of topical significance for human health due to the worrying increase of nosocomial infections caused by multi-resistant bacteria. It covers several basic aspects, such as the evolution of antibiotic resistance and the influence of antibiotics on the gut microbiota, and addresses the search for novel pathogenicity blockers as well as historical aspects of antibiotics. Further topics include applied aspects, such as drug discovery based on biodiversity and genome mining, optimization of lead structures by medicinal chemistry, total synthesis and drug delivery technologies. Moreover, the development of vaccines as a valid alternative therapeutic approach is outlined, while the importance of epidemiological studies on important bacterial pathogens, the problems arising from the excessive use of antibiotics in animal breeding, and the development of innovative technologies for diagnosing the “bad bugs” are discussed in detail. Accordingly, the book will appeal to researchers and clinicians alike.

Book Description :

Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has been used as a biopesticide in agriculture, forestry and mosquito control because of its advantages of specific toxicity against target insects, lack of polluting residues and safety to non-target organisms. The insecticidal properties of this bacterium are due to insecticidal proteins produced during sporulation. Despite these ecological benefits, the use of Bt biopesticides has lagged behind the synthetic chemicals. Genetic improvement of Bt natural strains, in particular Bt recombination, offers a promising means of improving efficacy and cost-effectiveness of Bt-based bioinsecticide products to develop new biotechnological applications. On the other hand, the different Bacillus species have important biotechnological applications; one of them is carried out by producing secondary metabolites, which are the study object of natural product chemistry. The amazing structural variability of these compounds has attracted the curiosity of chemists and the biological activities possessed by natural products have inspired the pharmaceutical industry to search for lead structures in microbial extracts. Screening of microbial extracts reveals the large structural diversity of natural compounds with broad biological activities, such as antimicrobial, antiviral, immunosuppressive, and antitumor activities that enable the bacterium to survive in its natural environment. These findings widen the target range of Bacillus spp., in special B. thuringiensis, besides insecticidal activity and help people to better understand its role in soil ecosystem.

Although the origin and the basic meaning of the terms "planar lipid bilayers" and "liposome" have not changed during the years, the present advances in the scientific, technological, biomedical and consumer product fields are remarkable. Ever since its launch the "Adances in Planar Lipid Bilayers and Liposomes’ (APLBL) has provided a global platform for a community of researchers having very broad scientific interests in theoretical, experimental and simulation studies on lipid and cell membrane micro and nanostructures. Ranging from artificial lipid membranes to cell membranes, controlled release of functional molecules, drug delivery to cancer cells, pharmaceutical formulations to food products, the applications are simply enormous. An assortment of chapters in APLBL represents both an original research as well as comprehensives reviews written by world leading experts and young researchers. Many ideas proposed in lipid nanoscience are frontier and futuristic, although some have immediate technological applications. The core scientific principles of lipid nanoscience and applications, however, are grounded in physics and chemistry. In last three decades the studies of polymorphism of lipid micro and nanostructures have gone through a major revolution concerning its understanding and evolution of new equilibrium and non-equilibrium structures of various length scales. Novel applications of the lipid micro and nanostructures are progressing rapidly among numerous disciplines. The APLBL book series gives a survey on recent theoretical as well as experimental results on lipid micro and nanonanostructures. In addition, the potential use of the basic knowledge in applications like clinically relevant diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, biotechnology, pharmaceutical engineering and food products is presented.
