Names Legionella pneumophila str. Lens
Accession numbers NC_006366, NC_006369
Background Legionella pneumophila is the causative agent of the Legionnaires' disease, a potentially fatal pneumonia. It was isolated after an outbreak of pneumonia at an American legion convention in Philadelphia. Legionella pneumophila is found in biofilms and fresh and industrial water systems worldwide. It can survive and replicate intracellularly in free-living protozoa, often in aquatic biofilms. Legionella pneumophila (strain Corby) is an aerobic human isolate. (HAMAP: LEGPC)
