1. Metal ion transport in eukaryotic microorganisms: insights from Saccharomyces cerevisiae
2. Iron uptake by fungi: contrasted mechanisms with internal or external reduction
3. Dynamics of metabolism and its interactions with gene expression during sporulation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
4. Carbon and nitrogen metabolism in rhizobium
5. Redundancy of aerobic respiratory chains in bacteria? Routes, reasons and regulations

Audience: Microbiologists, biochemists, biotechnologists. Of particular interest to those interested in physiology, microbial biochemistry, and its applications.

Editorial Reviews

Eugene M. Muller
This book, the 39th volume in the series "Advances in Microbial Physiology, contains seven of state-of the-art review articles. The Advances series is written to present a review of the current knowledge in each of the selected subjects. The topics that are covered will be of interest to a limited number of investigators, particularly physiologists and ecologists. The book is intended for both basic scientists working in the area of microbial physiology as well as an audience with more than a strong knowledge in this field. Each review discusses in depth the biochemical, genetic, and molecular biological approaches that are being used to build the current level of understanding of physiological mechanisms. The book as written offers to be of vast practical utility to both applied and basic scientists. The editorial staff of this series solicits contributions from internationally recognized scientists. Each review is current, well-written, and sufficiently illustrated. Each is well supported by current and appropriate references. The topics covered in this volume include: nitrate assimilation, clostridial carbohydrate to solvent conversion, mycobacterial envelope layers, effects of fermentation acids on growth, sulfur-oxidizing bacteria, microbial circadian and ultradian rhythms, and utilization of unusual carbon compounds by anoxygenic phototrophs. These reviews, and the Advances series in general, deal with issues that are so specialized as to limit the general appeal of the book. The book would be of most benefit to those individuals who are currently conducting research in the fields reviewed in this volume, although, as with the previous volumes of the Advances series, eachedition will be a valuable resource for both basic and applied scientists. The book will be a useful addition to the private libraries of researchers in microbial physiology, ecology, and biotechnology.

Meet the Author

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.
