      Cell-surface signaling in Pseudomonas: stress responses, iron transport, and pathogenicity (pages 569–597)

      María A. Llamas, Francesco Imperi, Paolo Visca and Iain L. Lamont

      Version of Record online: 2 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6976.12078

      In this review, we discuss the diversity of cell-surface signaling systems that control functions such as iron uptake and virulence in Pseudomonas species, as well as the underlying regulatory mechanisms and the ways in which these systems are integrated with other cellular pathways.

      Bitter-sweet symphony: glycan–lectin interactions in virus biology (pages 598–632)

      Wander Van Breedam, Stefan Pöhlmann, Herman W. Favoreel, Raoul J. de Groot and Hans J. Nauwynck

      Version of Record online: 6 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/1574-6976.12052

      Glycans and lectins cover crucial roles in virus biology and their interplay often shapes the virus-host interaction. This review reflects on glycan-lectin interactions in the context of viral infection and anti-viral immunity, and explores potential targets for antiviral strategies.
