ASM Press, 2003 - Medical - 563 pages
A review and analysis of research and investigations from the perspective of the host intestinal epithelial cell. Examines the effects of enteric microbial pathogens on host intestinal epithelial cell function and physiology, as well as the signaling events responsible for these functional consequences. Covers the normal structure and function of the gastrointestinal tract is covered and focuses on specific microbial pathogens. Examines the results of studies utilizing nonintestinal cell models within the context of findings obtained from model intestinal epithelial systems. Emphasizes relevant physiological endpoints."
