Vibrio vulnificus, a naturally occurring estuarine bacterium frequently transmitted to humans via raw oysters, is a leading cause of seafood-related deaths in the United States. Although unique virulence markers have not been identified to date, multiple biomarkers have been used previously to associate strains with clinical or environmental types of V. vulnificus. In this study, we evaluated the usefulness of these biomarkers in characterizing 349 V. vulnificus oyster isolates by the presence… CONTINUE READING
