Surface-associated hsp60 chaperonin of Legionella pneumophila mediates invasion in a HeLa cell model.

Abstract

HeLa cells have been previously used to demonstrate that virulent strains of Legionella pneumophila (but not salt-tolerant avirulent strains) efficiently invade nonphagocytic cells. Hsp60, a member of the GroEL family of chaperonins, is displayed on the surface of virulent L. pneumophila (R. A. Garduño et al., J. Bacteriol. 180:505-513, 1988). Because Hsp60… (More)
