About this Research Topic
Following the success of this Research Topic http://journal.frontiersin.org/researchtopic/3298/regulation-of-gene-expression-in-enteropathogenic-bacteria, we are happy to launch a second edition of the project. Pathogenic bacteria have evolved numerous strategies to survive in and to attack 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 causing infections in humans, including but not limited to Vibrio, Shigella, Salmonella, Campylobacter, Yersinia, Escherichia coli, Helicobacter pylori, Listeria monocytogenes, and Clostridium difficile.
Keywords: Gene expression, Enteropathogenic bacteria, protein regulator, regulatory non-coding RNAs, virulence
