Disease relevance of Legionellaceae

 

High impact information on Legionellaceae

  • All were nonfermentative, lacked urease, were incapable of nitrate reduction, and reacted positively with a DNA probe specific for the Legionellaceae [2].
  • Disk diffusion antimicrobial susceptibility testing of members of the family Legionellaceae including erythromycin-resistant variants of Legionella micdadei [3].
  • Glycine-containing selective medium for isolation of Legionellaceae from environmental specimens [4].
  • The addition of 0.001% bromocresol purple and 0.001% bromothymol blue to buffered charcoal-yeast extract agar allowed differentiation between members of the family Legionellaceae [5].
  • This confirms previous reports that mip related genes are widespread among Legionellaceae and therefore specific detection of the species L. pneumophila cannot be based on mip-targeted amplification [6].
 

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Legionellaceae

  • The distribution of mip-related sequences within the Legionellaceae was studied by DNA amplification using mip-specific primers followed by Southern blot hybridization with an internal probe [6].
