About this Research Topic
Pathogenic bacteria have evolved numerous strategies to survive in environment and hosts, which can be reflected by transcriptional and posttranscriptional changes in specific genes especially including those encoding virulence determinants. Regulation of gene expression by regulatory proteins and non-coding RNAs enables the pathogens to adapt their metabolic needs and to coordinately express virulence determinants during different stages of infection. In this Research Topic, we encourage submissions on mechanisms and consequences of transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene regulation processes in enteropathogenic bacteria such as Vibrio, Shigella, Escherichia coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter, Yersinia, Bacillus, Helicobacter pylori, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Mycobacterium avium, Listeria monocytogenes, Clostridium difficile, and Shewanella.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
