Two clusters (C and F) of vibrios
present at high densities were identified and their virulence with respect to scallop larvae was demonstrated in a challenge experiment.
Gene expression patterns in cholera stool-derived vibrios
have shown that the tcp and ctxAB operons are largely repressed (23).
Because of the high water temperature, high nutrient concentration and high stocking density in the ZEAH system, the lack of adequate handling may be responsible for rapid reproduction of Vibrio
(WASIELESKY et al.
use breakdown products of oil," New Scientist quoted Rita Colwell of the University of Maryland in College Park.
The BAX[R] System Real-Time PCR Assay for Vibrio
detects low levels of three distinct species - V.
bacteria are odorless and colorless, occur naturally in seawater worldwide (Oliver, Warner, & Cleland, 1983), and multiply rapidly when water temperatures increase (Cabrera-Garcia, Vazquez-Salinas, & Quinones-Ramirez, 2004; Elhadi, Radu, Chen, & Nishibuchi, 2004; Motes et al.
cholerae is a gram-negative, highly motile, curved or comma-shaped rod bacterium that produces cholera enterotoxin and responsible for the life-threatening secretory diarrhoea.
METHODS: We examined the geographic diffusion of three cholera outbreaks through their linkage with the wind direction: a) the progress of Vibrio
cholerae O1 biotype El Tor in Africa during 1970-1971 and b) again in 2005-2006; and c) the rapid spread of Vibrio
cholerae O139 over India during 1992-1993.
Your chances of coming across nasty varieties of vibrios
in New England waters are not much better than the guy with the metal detector finding a pot of gold beneath a sand castle.
Taxonomy and description of Vibrio
fluvialis sp nov (synonym Group F vibrios
, Group EF6).
It normally lives in warm seawater and is part of a group of vibrios
that are called "halophilic" because they require salt.
cholerae is not a problem, but two other vibrios
are of concern: V vulnificus and V.
In every sample of bleached coral, but in none of the healthy specimens, the scientists found clusters of rod-shaped bacteria known as vibrios
in environmental, seafood and clinical sources in Germany.
Pathogenicity of Vibrios
to rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss, Walbaum) and Artemia nauplii.
