Legionella pneumophila, the causative agent of Legionnaires disease, has a biphasic life cycle with a switch from a replicative to a transmissive phenotype. During the replicative phase, the bacteria grow within host cells in Legionella-containing vacuoles. During the transmissive phenotype and the postexponential (PE) growth phase, the pathogens express(More)
Legionella oakridgensis causes Legionnaires' disease but is known to be less virulent than Legionella pneumophilaL. oakridgensis is one of the Legionella species that is nonflagellated. The genes of the flagellar regulon are absent, except those encoding the alternative sigma-28 factor (FliA) and its anti-sigma-28 factor (FlgM). Similar to L. oakridgensis,(More)
Recently, we identified a putative prophage on a genomic island (GI) within the genome sequence of Francisella hispaniensis isolate AS0-814 (Francisella tularensis subsp. novicida-like 3523) by the analysis of the CRISPR-Cas systems of Francisella. Various spacer DNAs within the CRISPR region of different F. tularensis subsp. novicida strains were found to(More)
