Legionella pneumophilia


Bonjour, I am L. pneumophilia.
I am found everywhere, especially in aquatic environments.
I get into you through aerosol or water droplets.

My most well known serogroups are types 1, 4 and 6.
I'm well known for causing Legionnaire's disease.
This disease gives you a severe pneumonia illness.
I can also give you a milder, flu like disease called pontic fever.

Did you know? Legionnaire's disease got its name because it was first recognised at a legionnaire veteran convention?

By sheer chance, I just clicked over from this article about cholera. Congratulations on landing Blogger's spotlight!

Dario said...

I think that your blog is really funny! I share the microbe passion with you: i'm graduating in Foods sciences and technologies and i found useful your work. Excuse my poor english but i'm italian. Although i'm thinking to transfer in USA for work :-) Dario

Ashley said...

Thats interesting i never knew why it was called legionnaires. You learn something new everyday.

Did you know that legionnaire veteran convention was in Philadelphia? ... you do now =:-)

Julia Buckley said...

Brilliant. who'd have thought microbes were so cute?! I shall feel really guilty next time I take antiboitics now!

Hey,nice blog!!!

I found a place where you can make an extra $800 or more a month. I do it part time and make a lot more than that. It is definitely worth a visit! You can do it in your spare time and make good cash. Make Extra Cash

Jim said...

I'm a cell biologist....love your blog! With the resources available, you should be able to keep this going for a long, long, long, time...then you can step down, or is it up, to the happy world of the virus....

One more thing...I'm a blogger too and I have yet to discover how those of you who are so much more creative than I set up your personalized headings on your blogs...can you help me? If so, just jump over to my blog and drop a quick note on the first message there. Thanks!!!!!!!

Oberon said...

........i'm not a cell biologist but.......i love your hat.

Ainsley Wiles said...

I was just looking at some algae and other critters from a pond and found your site, don't you just love irony.

Adam said...

Who would have thought that microbes, which can be seen only through a microscope could be so interesting. Really creative

Sylph said...

I love this blog. i am a ecotoxicologist in Canada but i share your interest in bacteria!!!

Anonymous said...

Funny packaging of some serious information! neat!

abux said...

You put a smile on my face, thanks from Spain!

Kathleen Murphy said...

Very cute! I'm a microbiologist by training and am currently a high school biology teacher in the U.S. We are getting ready to blog our Honors Bio notes and create a "virtual study group". As I logged on tonight to set some things up, I saw your blog in the spotlight.
I am a total microbe lover; I have some cartoons drawn by a friend 25 years ago and will upload them to your blog when I have time.
Keep it up. Microbes rule the Earth.

raffy said...

Cute blog! I'm preparing an entry on my blog to link to yours. I'd like to include one of your darling illustrations in the blog entry. I couldn't find an email address to ask for permission though. Could you send an email to raffy@raffyd.com so we might correspond on this? Thanks!

anonymous jones said...

SNOTTITES and EXTREMOPHILES: I have tackled this topic as my current post. What does a snottite and a fluffy bunny have in common? Can you vote an extremophile in at the next election? Do I know what I am talking about?! The voices tell me that I do .....

you are wierd

Joey Maye Faire said...

Very interesting. Keep up the good work. If you keep making those little critters look so cute then more people are going want to get sick!

ThatGirlTasha said...

Congrats on being a "blog of note"I'm not a biologist but I am a germaphobe-very cute blog.

aSpEcT said...

it was like a wonder to go through there.it was a nice nostalgia when i used to be in MBBS preparation entrance class .
nice blog
keep it up

Anonymous said...

this site is HILARIOUS!!!
i have sent it along to several professors, especially my MICRO professor. and friends... i cant wait to go thru all the posts...

but you make them all too cute, i want to adopt them all. but not IN my body ;)

*still cracking up*

tsunamichaser said...

Your blog is great as is your artwork. The images capture these microbes way better than an electron mircoscope, if you are trying to convey to the public the nature of these disease agents. You have a future in health education if you choose.

future alpha lawyer said...

love the blog =)

GoGo said...

OMG, funny!

Great idea! I've adopted a few already in my life time.

Medagogue said...

Someone from my neighborhood got the plague. I wrote about it. Check out my site.

Nenet said...

Wow, you have a great blog, great illustrations too! Congratulations! By the way, I would like to link up your blog, thanks so much.

Vir said...

Love your blog, great job!

Paolo said...

Hi. Very funny. Really. I would like to have someone who take a look to my blog.
I'm new here.
the address is: paolo-taddei-artworks.
Please share with the others.

Continue with microbes. they're great.

Tom said...

Nice to see it taking off, Em.

Interesting concept for a blog, but make sure you spell the names of the organisms correctly..L. pneumophila

Gwendolyne said...

You are the first blog I have bookmarked. Keep up the creative journey of art and science. I studied biochemistry back in University and chose a life in the arts. Visit me one day and say hi.

sacredspace said...

Love ya blog... it was funny and interesting.

I'm new here. Please read mine

tcs said...

Cell biology grad student in the USA thinks this is awesome!

I wonder if non-US people know that the infamous convention was not for the glamorous French Foreign Legion, but for the American Legion, which is mostly elderly, ultra-nationalistic US Armed Forces veterans? Even so, the French hat looks much better than anything an American Legionnaire might wear!

Could you possibly do Listeria monocytogenes? It propels itself from cell to cell using a "comet tail" made of protein from the host. People often get Listeria from cheese.

thanks for your entertaining art & a nice contribution to microbiology education!

j.daniel said...

i love the blog and visit it from time to time. i noticed that you mention "pontic fever" on this post and i wanted to point out the misspelling - i'm certain you meant "pontiac fever" which is named for Pontiac, Michigan (a city just outside Detroit) where the illness was first characterized.

Doc T said...

Another of my favorite genra of bacteria. I spent the last year of my PhD research studying this beast in the swamps of South Carolina. A couple of years later I found myself in the Mt. St. Helens blast zone, a few weeks post-eruption, collecting samples from which I isolated a number of Legionella.
You have a great blog, thanks for your hard work and interest in microbes!

korkusuzlar said...

Don't you get it. It's all about the big musicians. Internet radio gives the smaller bands a chance to possibly make it. The RIAA can't have that, this is the United States of America, where the rich man gets richer and the poor man stays poor.
