      Bacterial virulence; iron-regulated membrane proteins

    • Abstract


      The amount of iron that might be readily available to bacteria in body fluids is extremely small. This iron restricted environment induces phenotypic changes in the metabolism and in the composition of the membrane proteins of bacteria growingin vivo. These changes are now providing a fresh insight into the capabilities of bacteria to multiply in host tissues and are suggesting new possibilities for targetting therapeutic and prophylactic measures.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
