Default OD620 of a Listeria culture



Dear netters,

Merry Christmas!
I have a problem in growing Listeria monocytogenes in LB broth overnight to reach a OD620 >0.5. I have tried: 1) make fresh broth batch; 2) pull out the -70 C glycerol stock and streak on LB plate to isolate single colony and start over, 3) grow seed bacterial culture using this new single colony at day time for 7 hours and subculture at 1:100 dilution into the new flask overnight with agitation, but all failed. From my labmate, it is clear the same strain performed pretty well in about one year ago in LB broth and OD620 can go up to 1.5 after overnight growth. Do I need to pass through mouse to revive it ? Any clue will be most appreciated. Hanhong Dan

Hi Hanhiong

Sounds to me like the isolate has degraded competance as evidenced by the
extension of lag phase.

You could try using a less selctive medium at all stages after all it is
already in defined pure culture right.

Probabley your easiest solution is to purchase a new type culture.
