Nitric Oxide and Other Small Signalling Molecules, Volume 73, the latest release in the Advances in Microbial Physiology series, continues the long tradition of topical, important, cutting-edge reviews in microbiology. The book contains updates in the field, with comprehensive chapters covering Nitric Oxide and Urinary Pathogens, Antibiotic Lethality and pH Homeostasis, Antimicrobial Strategies for Avian Pathogens and Bioactive Peptides from Marine Sources for Biotechnological Applications, and more.
Professor Robert Poole is West Riding Professor of Microbiology at the University of Sheffield. He has >35 years' experience of bacterial physiology and bioenergetics, in particular O2-, CO- and NO-reactive proteins, and has published >300 papers (h=48, 2013). He was Chairman of the Plant and Microbial Sciences Committee of the UK Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council and has held numerous grants from BBSRC, the Wellcome and Leverhulme Trusts and the EC. He coordinates an international SysMO systems biology consortium. He published pioneering studies of bacterial oxidases and globins and discovered the bacterial flavohaemoglobin gene (hmp) and its function in NO detoxification He recently published the first systems analyses of responses of bacteria to novel carbon monoxide-releasing molecules (CORMs) and is a world leader in NO, CO and CORM research.
