Physicochemical Factors Affecting Persistence of Francisella Tularensis in Soil

Abstract

Francisella tularensis (FT) is gram negative, non-motile, capsulated and intracellular zoonotic fastidious bacteria, causing tularemia in both animals and human. Soil texture and heavy metals play an important role in survival and persistence of microbes in environment. In the present study, association of physical and chemical composition of soil was… (More)
