Electrophoretic mobility of Legionella pneumophila serogroups 1 to 14
Buse, H., J. Hoelle, C. Muhlen, AND D. Lytle. Electrophoretic mobility of Legionella pneumophila serogroups 1 to 14. FEMS MICROBIOLOGY LETTERS. Elsevier Science Ltd, New York, NY, , 1, (2018).
Legionella pneumophila (Lp) is ubiquitous in the aquatic environment and can persist within drinking water distribution systems (DWDS) enabling these systems to serve as a potential source of human infections. This study characterizes the surface charge differences between Legionella pneumophila (Lp) sgs and helps further our understanding of bacterial mechanisms governing L. pneumophila persistence in DWDS. Understanding the ecological importance of Lp surface properties (e.g. in mobility, colonization, resistance to disinfectants, etc.) within DWDS, would aid in mitigation of health risks associated with this water-based pathogen.
