Reference Fenollar F, Maurin M, Raoult D. Wolbachia pipientis growth kinetics and susceptibilities to 13 antibiotics determined by immunofluorescence staining and real-time PCR. Antimicrob Agents Chemother. 2003 May47(5):1665-71.PubMed ID12709338
Method Quantitative PCR assay. The primary inoculum was found to contain approximately 10^3 DNA copies/ml. After latency of approximately 24 h, the growth of W. pipientis was exponential, with a nearly 2.5-log increase in the bacterial load after 6 days of incubation of the cultures. Thus, the doubling time during this period could be evaluated to be 14 h.
