Pili in Mycobacterium Tuberculosis: Structure, Function, and Therapeutic Advances discusses the types of pili produced by the tuberculosis-causing bacterium, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTBC). The book examines the structure of pili shown under electron and atomic force microscopy and by using whole genome sequencing, and outlines the importance of pili in mycobacterium tuberculosis. It then explores the role of pili in bacteria-host interactions and in drug development and delivery. Sections open with an overview of the structure, synthesis, and function of pili in bacteria. This includes taxonomy and the role of pili in diseases.

The book also examines the preparation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis for electronic and atomic microscopy and looks at the different life cycles and susceptibility patterns of MTBC and goes on to discuss the expression and function of pili using whole genome sequencing and PCR-based methods and delves into bacteria host interactions. Lastly, it explores the development of new drugs and its delivery by pili.
