A comprehensive reference on the state of the science for both experienced researchers and for those who are interested in discovering its many promising applications.
Examines c-di-GMP signaling from a variety of angles, beginning with an introductory chapter that compares c-di-GMP to the better-known second messenger cAMP.
Recounts the discovery of c-di-GMP, explains the important role of bioinformatics in the development and continued evolution of the field, and describes the fundamental structure, function, regulation, and integration of c-di-GMP pathways.
Explores the role of c-di-GMP in such diverse processes as flagellar biogenesis and motility, extracellular polysaccharide biosynthesis, biofilm development, virulence, and innate host immunity.
