Daphnia magna, a host for evaluation of bacterial virulence

Published inApplied and environmental microbiology, vol. 78, no. 2, p. 593-595
Publication date2012
Abstract

We show that Daphnia magna can be used to assess acute virulence of pathogens relevant to human health, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Photorhabdus asymbiotica. Analysis of bacterial mutants suggests that P. aeruginosa uses similar mechanisms to infect Daphnia and other hosts.
