Special topic: Legionella pneumophila and other Legionella species.
Legionella is aerobic, rod-shaped and Gram-negative bacteria, and
includes Legionella pneumophila, which causes legionellosis.
Legionella mainly inhabit in terrestrial soil and in aquatic
environments such as lakes and rivers. In the human living
environment, it is often found in circulating water used for
air-conditioning and bathing facilities, and is considered to be
transmitted to humans through the tiny water droplets (aerosols)
occurred from these facilities.
In JCM, 18 strains belong to the 14 species, including Legionella 
pneumophila subsp. pneumophila JCM 7571T, have been maintained.
Legionella require amino acids such as L-cysteine, serine and
threonine as energy and carbon sources for the growth. These strains
can be cultured on cysteine-containing medium such as buffered
charcoal yeast extract (BCYE) agar for approximately 2-3 days.
