Molecular Basis of Symbiosis
Jorg Overmann 2006 Springer, Progress in Molecular and Subcellular Biology Series

This book, part of the Progress in Molecular and Subcellular Biology series, contributes a broader perspective and understanding of the function of symbiotic systems. 14 different model systems are featured, comprising well-known symbioses as well as novel experimental systems which have only recently become amenable to experimental manipulation. Systems include: Syntrophic Associations in Methanogenic Degradation; Prokaryotic Symbionts of Termite Gut Flagellates; Caedibacter Endocytobionts in Paramecium; Mixotricha paradoxa from the Intestine of the Australian Termite Mastotermes darwiniensis; Extrusive Bacterial Ectosymbiosis of Ciliates; Hydrogenosomes and Symbiosis; Molecular Interactions Between Rhizobium and Legumes; Molecular Mechanisms in the Nitrogen-fixing Nostoc; Bryophyte Symbiosis; Symbiosis of Thioautotrophic Bacteria with Riftia pachyptila; Symbioses of Methanotrophs and Deep-Sea Mussels (Mytilidae: Bathymodiolinae); Symbioses Between Bacteria and Gutless Marine Oligochaetes; Roles of Bacterial Regulators in the Symbiosis Between Vibrio fischeri and Euprymna scolopes; and Molecular Requirements for the Colonization of Hirudo medicinalis by Aeromonas veronii.
