Complete and Circularized Genome Assembly of a Human Isolate of <named-content content-type='genus-species'>Vibrio navarrensis</named-content> Biotype <italic toggle='yes'>pommerensis</italic> with MiSeq and MinION Sequence Data

The complete and circularized genome assembly of a human isolate of Vibrio navarrensis biotype pommerensis was subjected to whole-genome sequencing and revealed major differences in biochemical profiles as well as borderline values in DNA-DNA hybridization experiments.

Diversity of Vibrio navarrensis Revealed by Genomic Comparison: Veterinary Isolates Are Related to Strains Associated with Human Illness and Sewage Isolates While Seawater Strains Are More Distant

The detection of V. navarrensis in human clinical specimens strongly suggests that this species should be regarded as a potential human pathogen, as according to the "One Health" concept, human, animal, and environmental health are linked.

An aerolysin-like enterotoxin from Vibrio splendidus may be involved in intestinal tract damage and mortalities in turbot, Scophthalmus maximus (L.), and cod, Gadus morhua L., larvae.

Investigation of the role of the V. splendidus haemolysin in infection of larvae showed that it formed pores in the membranes of erythrocytes of similar diameter to those of aerolysin, suggesting that this might control expression of the vibrioaerolysin.

Identification and characterization of Nip, necrosis-inducing virulence protein of Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora.

A mutant strain of E. carotovora lacking the nip gene showed reduced virulence in potato tuber assay but was unaffected in virulent in potato stem or on other tested host plants.

Complete and Circularized Genome Assembly of a Human Isolate of Vibrio navarrensis Biotype pommerensis with MiSeq and MinION Sequence Data

Strains of Vibrio navarrensis biotype pommerensis were isolated from seawater of the Baltic Sea and contain two circular chromosomes and a large plasmid with a size of 180 kb.

The complete genome sequence for putative H₂- and S-oxidizer Candidatus Sulfuricurvum sp., assembled de novo from an aquifer-derived metagenome.

Genomic evidence suggests RIFRC-1 is a chemolithoautotrophic diazotroph capable of deriving energy for growth by microaerobic or nitrate-/nitric oxide-dependent oxidation of S°, sulfide or sulfite or H₂oxidation, and carbon may be fixed via the reductive tricarboxylic acid cycle.

Characterisation of a haemolysin produced by Vibrio splendidus, a pathogen of turbot larvae

The virulence mechanisms of Vibrio splendidus DMC-1, which was isolated from a batch of turbot larvae suffering very high mortality at a turbot hatchery, were determined and it was indicated that this organism possesses all the domains necessary for gene regulation but with novel features not previously recorded for other regulators of virulence genes.

Positive selection in phytotoxic protein-encoding genes of Botrytis species.

Toxicity of Recombinant Necrosis and Ethylene-Inducing Proteins (NLPs) from Neofusicoccum parvum

An overview of the NLP gene family of N. parvum is described for the first time and additional insights into its pathogenicity mechanism are provided.



Cloning and detection of the hemolysin gene of Vibrio anguillarum.

DNA hybridization analysis under high-stringent conditions using VAH1 as a probe demonstrated thatVAH1 hybridized with 25 out of 28 strains of V. anguillarum including serotypes A to I, but did not hybridize with other species of Vibrio, A. hydrophila or A. salmonicida.

Physical and genetic map of the genome of Vibrio parahaemolyticus: presence of two chromosomes in Vibrio species

A physical map of the genomic DNA for Vibrio parahaemolyticus strain AQ4673 is constructed by combining 17 adjacent NotI fragments and shows two circular replicons, suggesting that a two‐replicon structure is common throughout Vibri species.

Thermostable direct hemolysin gene of Vibrio parahaemolyticus: a virulence gene acquired by a marine bacterium

Results of these genetic studies of the tdh gene indicate that TDH is a major virulence determinant of KP-positive V. parahaemolyticus strains and that the KP- positive phenotype results from highlevelexpression ofaparticulartdhgene, which makes the KP phenotype a good marker for a virulent strain.

Cloning and sequencing of a novel hemolysis gene of Vibrio cholerae.

A hemolysis gene (hlx) which lyses sheep erythrocytes on blood agar plates when expressed in Escherichia coli was cloned from Vibrio cholerae. The cloned gene is predicted to encode a polypeptide of

Demonstration of a plasmid-borne gene encoding a thermostable direct hemolysin in Vibrio cholerae non-O1 strains

Of 15 Vibrio cholerae non-O1 strains, 2 produced a hemolysin termed NAG-rTDH, which is very similar to the thermostable direct hemolysin of V. parahaemolyticus. These two strains contained DNA

Enterohemolysin, a new type of hemolysin produced by some strains of enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC).

DNA sequence of both chromosomes of the cholera pathogen Vibrio cholerae

The V. cholerae genomic sequence provides a starting point for understanding how a free-living, environmental organism emerged to become a significant human bacterial pathogen.

Vibrio navarrensis sp. nov., a species from sewage.

A group of 11 strains, mostly isolated from sewage water in the Province of Navarra, Spain, were found to constitute a DNA relatedness group which is 2 to 39% related to 23 species of the genus
