The Genus Aeromonas: Taxonomy, Pathogenicity, and Infection
An extensive review of issues still remain regarding the role that Aeromonas plays in bacterial gastroenteritis, the extent to which species identification should be attempted in the clinical laboratory, and laboratory reporting of test results from contaminated body sites containing aeromonads. Expand
Evolving concepts regarding the genus Aeromonas: an expanding Panorama of species, disease presentations, and unanswered questions.
Convincing evidence suggests that some aeromonads do cause gastroenteritis, but it is presently unclear whether many of the strains isolated from feces are involved in diarrheal disease. Expand
16S rRNA Gene Sequencing for Bacterial Identification in the Diagnostic Laboratory: Pluses, Perils, and Pitfalls
The use of 16S rRNA gene sequences to study bacterial phylogeny and taxonomy has been by far the most common housekeeping genetic marker used for a number of reasons. These reasons include (i) its… Expand
The Genus Aeromonas: Biochemical Characteristics, Atypical Reactions, and Phenotypic Identification Schemes
A total of 193 strains representing 14 different Aeromonas genomospecies were evaluated for 63 phenotypic properties to create useful tables for the reference identification of mesophilic aeromonads and several new tests were identified that help to separate members of the A. caviae complex. Expand
Infections associated with the genus Edwardsiella: the role of Edwardsiella tarda in human disease.
Although studies indicate that this bacterium is susceptible to most commonly prescribed antibiotics, fatal gastrointestinal and extraintestinal infections have been described. Expand
Current perspectives on the epidemiology and pathogenesis of clinically significant Vibrio spp.
Questions regarding pathogenic Vibrio species remain unanswered, including their frequency and distribution in environmental specimens, infective doses, virulence potential of individual isolates, and markers associated with such strains. Expand
Recent advances in the study of the taxonomy, pathogenicity, and infectious syndromes associated with the genus Aeromonas.

Analysis of homologues of intimin (eae), which revealed that the central conserved domains are similar in E. albertii and Shigella B13 and distinct from those of eae variants found in pathogenic E. coli, formed a distinct evolutionary branch of enteric pathogens that has radiated into groups with distinct virulence properties.

Biochemical and Pathogenic Properties ofShewanella alga and Shewanella putrefaciens
Pathogenicity studies of mice indicate that S. putrefaciens alga appears to be the more virulent species, possibly due to the production of a hemolytic substance. Expand
The Genus Hafnia: from Soup to Nuts
There are numerous gaps in the understanding of this genus, including ecologic habitats and population genetics, disease-producing role in animals, phenetic and genetic methods useful in distinguishing genomospecies within the H. alvei complex, and bona fide pathogenicity factors. Expand
