Strain Information: 1572/5

Division/Phylum: Amoebozoa    Class: Tubulinea


Saccamoeba lacustris Dujardin (1841)

CCAP 1572/5
Isolator: Michel (2006)
Origin: Freshwater; from decaying leaves in pond, Sudermühlen, Lüneburg Heath, Germany
Culture: Medium NN; Bacteria present; sub; E. coli or Enterobacter cloacae as food bacteria
Other: Orig. desig. SL-30 (SL-3); strain SL-3 appeared after its isolation as host of an intranuclear Nucleophaga-like parasite, non infected trophozoites had been separated from those infected and represent the origin of this strain "SL-30". The endoparasite was called "K-SL3".;
