  author={William Soto and C Phoebe Lostroh and Michele K Nishiguchi},
1. The Vibrionaceae 1.1. A GENERAL DESCRIPTION The family Vibrionaceae (Domain Bacteria, Phylum Proteobacteria, Class Gammaproteobacteria) is comprised of mostly motile gram-negative chemoorganotrophs, possessing at least one polar flagellum (Farmer III and Janda, 2005; Thompson and Swings, 2006). Vibrios are facultative anaerobes, having both respiratory and fermentative metabolisms, and the mol% G+C of the DNA is 38-51% (Farmer III and Janda, 2005). Cells are usually 1 µm in width and 2-3 µm… CONTINUE READING
