The dependence of Legionella pneumophila on other aquatic bacteria for survival on R2A medium

The dependence of Legionella pneumophila on other aquatic bacteria for survival on R2A medium

Biofilms were grown in a continous culture model biofilm system. Bacteria isolated from these biofilms were shown to prolong the viability of Legionella pneumophila when inoculated onto R2A medium. Heat-killed and cell-free extracts of the same bacteria were not able to support the survival of L. pneumophila on R2A. This suggests that the non-Legionellaceae play a role as yet undefined in the survival of L. pneumophila.

Abstract

Biofilms were grown in a continous culture model biofilm system. Bacteria isolated from these biofilms were shown to prolong the viability of Legionella pneumophila when inoculated onto R2A medium. Heat-killed and cell-free extracts of the same bacteria were not able to support the survival of L. pneumophila on R2A. This suggests that the non-Legionellaceae play a role as yet undefined in the survival of L. pneumophila.
