Example sentences for: pneumophila

How can you use “pneumophila” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • There are examples in the literature where both ABC transporters (in Streptococcus gordonii : [ 35 ] ) and helicase genes (in Legionella pneumophila : [ 36 ] ) have been directly implicated in virulence.

  • E. coli and Legionella pneumophila are the only two γ-proteobacteria that possess this protein, suggesting that they might have acquired RecT via a relatively recent horizontal transfer from Gram-positive bacteria.

  • I have demonstrated that a gene coding for a bifunctional catalase-peroxidase is likely a transfer from archaea to a variety of pathogenic bacteria, including E. coli O157:H7 [ 9 ] . Although not yet directly implicated in O157:H7 as a virulence factor, this enzyme has been implicated as a virulence factor in Mycobacterium tuberculosis [ 24 26 ] , and in Legionella pneumophila [ 25 ] . Furthermore, this E. coli O157:H7 catalase-peroxidase has been associated with enterohaemorrhagic hemolysin in a variety of shiga-like toxin-producing (verotoxin-producing) E. coli [ 30 31 ] . This correlation of the presence of the catalase-peroxidase in many virulent but not in avirulent strains suggests a direct role in the virulence of enterohemorrhagic E. coli .

  • ( A. tumefaciens , which is not shown in Figure 9, is virtually identical to S. meliloti ). Additional phylogenetically spaced fusions are present in Thermomonospora fusca, Azospirillum brasilense , and Legionella pneumophila . Other fusions that involve trpAa or trpAb homologs also occur in nature, as shown in Table 3, and a degree of care is needed to avoid confusion between them.
