Abstract

This review describes the mechanisms of gene transfer in Legionella pneumophila. To date, conjugation and transformation have been reported for this organism. Recent reports indicate that an endogenous system of plasmid transfer appears to be required for the intracellular survival and multiplication of L. pneumophila in host cells.
