The realization of the immunogenic properties of double stranded DNA and its implications in disease and vaccinology


Key Features

  • Multi-authored by a distinguished panel of world-class experts
  • Ideal source of information for those wanting to learn about DNA sensing
  • Provides in-depth explanations of DNA sensing pathways and the innate immune system, bridging the gap between them


Biological DNA Sensor defines the meaning of DNA sensing pathways and demonstrates the importance of the innate immune responses induced by double stranded DNA (dsDNA) through its influencing functions in disease pathology and immune activity of adjuvants for vaccines.

Though discussed in specific subsections of existing books, dsDNA and its immunogenic properties has never received the complete treatment given in this book. Biological DNA Sensor approaches the impact of dsDNA's immunogenicity on disease and vaccinology holistically. It paints a complete and concise picture on the topic so you can understand this area of study and make more informed choices for your respective research needs. Chapters are authored by researchers who are renowned for their research focus, ensuring that this book provides the most complete views on the topics.
