Growth temperature reversibly modulates the virulence of Legionella pneumophila

Growth temperature reversibly modulates the virulence of Legionella pneumophila
Growth temperature reversibly modulates the virulence of Legionella pneumophila

In chemostat culture, the virulence of two strains of Legionella pneumophila was shown to be significantly (P < 0.05) reduced when the culture temperature was lowered from 37 to 24°C. This modulation was reversed by returning the temperature to 37°C, which resulted in a statistically significant (P < 0.05) increase in virulence.

Abstract

In chemostat culture, the virulence of two strains of Legionella pneumophila was shown to be significantly (P < 0.05) reduced when the culture temperature was lowered from 37 to 24°C. This modulation was reversed by returning the temperature to 37°C, which resulted in a statistically significant (P < 0.05) increase in virulence.
