Mycobacterium avium grew in media at 14–37 °C, and persisted at 4 °C and 42 °C. The bacteria lost approximately 90% viability after 3 months in reverse-osmosis deionized water at 4–37 °C. Cooler temperatures lowered the death rate. Death rates also decreased after a 5- to 10-day starvation adaptation period. Alterations of the steady-state levels of(More)
