Prokaryotic Structure and Function: A New Perspective

Front Cover
This book evaluates the increasing wealth of knowledge that has accumulated concerning the regulation of synthesis and assembly of structural components of the bacterial cell. It is now possible in many cases to trace the exact sequence of events triggered by a change in the physical or chemical environment of a bacterial cell, for instance, signaling, gene expression, transport of the gene product to its correct location, and assembly into a functional structure. The scope of this volume is broad, ranging from the organization of the nuclear material itself to the sequence of events leading to differentiation and development; from the synthesis of intracellular storage material to the assembly of specialized photosynthetic membranes, periplasmic electron transfer chains, and heat-resistant spores.
