The taxonomic positions of Vibrio marinus and 11 related natural isolates were examined. Their phylogenetic positions on the basis of almost complete 16S rRNA sequences were determined by maximum likelihood, maximum parsimony and neighbor-joining analyses. V. marinus and the 11 isolates fell into a single cluster that was clearly distinct from other genera. There is now strong evidence that V. marinus should be reclassified as Moritella marina gen. nov., comb. nov.

TLDR
A 4.89-Mb draft genome sequence of Moritella dasanensis ArB 0140 is reported, which could provide comprehensive information on a psychrophilic mechanism in extreme environments. Expand
Moritella profunda sp. nov. and Moritella abyssi sp. nov., two psychropiezophilic organisms isolated from deep Atlantic sediments.
TLDR
Polyphasic evidence indicates that the two strains were isolated from Atlantic sediments belong to the genus Moritella and represent distinct species, for which the names MoriteLLA profunda sp. Expand
Moritella dasanensis sp. nov., a psychrophilic bacterium isolated from the Arctic ocean.
TLDR
Based on the data obtained, including DNA-DNA relatedness, physiological and biochemical tests and ice-controlling activity, strain ArB 0140T was found to be genetically and phenotypically different from other recognized species of the genus Moritella. Expand
Isolation of clustered genes that are notably homologous to the eicosapentaenoic acid biosynthesis gene cluster from the docosahexaenoic acid-producing bacterium Vibrio marinus strain MP-1
TLDR
A 40-kbp DNA fragment was isolated from the cosmid library of Vibrio marinus strain MP-1 and it is speculated that these ORFs 8, 9, 10 and 11 had high homology with ORFs 5, 6, 7 and 8 of the eicosapentaenoic acid biosynthesis gene cluster. Expand
Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of Vibrio viscosus sp. nov. and Vibrio wodanis sp. nov. isolated from Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) with 'winter ulcer'.
TLDR
Ability to degrade casein, oxidative production of acid from trehalose and production of lysine decarboxylase are important biochemical tests that will differentiate between V. viscosus, V. wodanis, and V. marinus. Expand
Characterization of Vibrio viscosus and Vibrio wodanis isolated at different geographical locations: a proposal for reclassification of Vibrio viscosus as Moritella viscosa comb. nov.
TLDR
The results revealed that the V. viscosus and V. wodanis strains are heterogeneous genotypically and phenotypically, and a reclassification of Vibrio Viscosus as Moritella viscosa comb is proposed. Expand

REISOLATION AND EMENDATION OF DESCRIPTION OF VIBRIO MARINUS (RUSSELL) FORD
TLDR
From the taxonomic data, both quantitative and qualitative, these strains appear to form a species-group closely related to the Vibrio marinus isolated by Russell from the gulf of Naples in 1891, and the V. marinus species description is extended. Expand
Phylogeny of the Vibrionaceae, and recommendation for two new genera, Listonella and Shewanella
TLDR
Results of this study indicate a good correlation between the taxonomy of the Vibrionaceae established using conventional and molecular genetic data and evolutionary relationships deduced from 5S rRNA sequences, however, several species require reconsideration of their taxonomic status, based on the new information obtained in this study. Expand
A New Approach to Separate the Genus Photobacterium from Vibrio with RFLP Patterns by HhaI Digestion of PCR-Amplified 16S rDNA
TLDR
A new approach to separate members of the genus Photobacterium from the genus Vibrio with RFLP (Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism) patterns by HhaI digestion of PCR-amplified 16S rDNA is developed and should be useful in routine identification system. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of the genera Alteromonas, Shewanella, and Moritella using genes coding for small-subunit rRNA sequences and division of the genus Alteromonas into two genera, Alteromonas (emended) and Pseudoalteromonas gen. nov., and proposal of twelve new species combinations.
TLDR
Small-subunit ribosomal DNA sequences were determined for 17 strains belonging to the genera Alteromonas, Shewanella, Vibrio, and Pseudomonas and these sequences were analyzed by phylogenetic methods, and it was suggested that the genus Alteromon as should be split into two genera. Expand
The nucleotide sequence of 5 S ribosomal RNA from Vibrio marinus.
TLDR
The complete nucleotide base sequence of the 5 S ribosomal RNA from Vibrio marinus MP-1 has been determined and compared with those of other members of the Vibrionaceae for which 5S rRNA sequences are available, confirming that V. marinus (MP-1) belongs to the family VibrIONaceae, but may represent a new genus.

Phylogenetic relationships of marine bacteria, mainly members of the family Vibrionaceae, determined on the basis of 16S rRNA sequences.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of 50 reference strains, mostly marine bacteria which require Na+ for growth, were determined on the basis of 600 16S rRNA nucleotides by using reverse transcriptase sequencing, and the family Vibrionaceae was separated into at least seven groups (genera and families).

TLDR
On the basis of polyphasic taxonomic data, the Antarctic iron-reducing strains are placed in two new species, Shewanella frigidimarina sp. Expand
Evolutionary relationships of cultivated psychrophilic and barophilic deep-sea bacteria
TLDR
The data indicate that the barophilic phenotype has evolved independently in different (gamma)-Proteobacteria genera. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis and assessment of the genera Vibrio, Photobacterium, Aeromonas, and Plesiomonas deduced from small-subunit rRNA sequences.
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis confirmed that the family Vibrionaceae should include only Photobacterium and Vibrio species; that Aeromonas species deserve family rank; and that Plesiomonas shigelloides is linked to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Expand
Partial and complete 16S rDNA sequences, their use in generation of 16S rDNA phylogenetic trees and their implications in molecular ecological studies
TLDR
The reverse transcriptase technique of 16S rRNA sequencing was used to determine the phylogeny of the extremely slow growing pathogenic organism Mycobacterium leprae, but the main breakthrough occurred recently when the 16SRDNA of small numbers of cells could be amplified by the PCR approach and sequenced, either directly or following a cloning step.
