Characterisation of an extracellular vibriolysin of the fish pathogen Moritella viscosa.

Abstract

Moritella viscosa causes winter ulcer disease in salmonids. The aim of the present work was to isolate and partially characterise an extracellular peptidase from M. viscosa, and to study its role in virulence. The peptidase, termed MvP1, was a 38-kDa metallopeptidase produced in late exponential growth. The optimum temperature for MvP1 was 40 degrees C, but… (More)
