ABSTRACT Vibrio navarrensis is an aquatic bacterium recently shown to be associated with human illness. We report the first genome sequences of three V. navarrensis strains obtained from clinical and environmental sources. Preliminary analyses of the sequences reveal that V. navarrensis contains genes commonly associated with virulence in other human pathogens.

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. Expand

Classification and structural insight into vibriolysin-like proteases of Vibrio pathogenicity.
The results suggest that structure of N-terminus might play a key role in the pathogenicity of VLPs, which are important virulence agents in the arsenal of Vibrio causing instant cytotoxic effects during infection. Expand
CRISPR-Cas and Contact-Dependent Secretion Systems Present on Excisable Pathogenicity Islands with Conserved Recombination Modules
This work demonstrated the presence of CRISPR-Cas systems and T3SSs on PAIs and showed that similar recombination modules can associate with different cargo genes and catalyze their incorporation into bacterial chromosomes, which could convert a strain into a pathogen with very different disease pathologies.

Molecular and Phenotypic Characterization of Vibrio navarrensis Isolates Associated with Human Illness
Four of the 18 strains characterized may represent a new Vibrio species, distinct from V. navarrensis, and found that they clustered with two previously characterized VIBrio navar Rensis isolates in a phylogenetic analysis. Expand

Vibrio vulnificus is an opportunistic human pathogen that is highly lethal and is responsible for the overwhelming majority of reported seafood-related deaths in the United States ([30][1],Expand
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 genusExpand
Phylogeny and Molecular Identification of Vibrios on the Basis of Multilocus Sequence Analysis
Overall, the three genetic loci were more discriminatory among species than were 16S rRNA sequences, and it can conclude that strains of the same species will have at least 98, 94, and 94% rpoA, recA, and pyrH gene sequence similarity, respectively. Expand
Tit-for-Tat: Type VI Secretion System Counterattack during Bacterial Cell-Cell Interactions
The data suggest that, in P. aeruginosa, T6SS organelle assembly and lethal counterattack are regulated by a signal that corresponds to the point of attack of the T 6SS apparatus elaborated by a second aggressive T6 SS(+) bacterial cell. Expand
A computational genomics pipeline for prokaryotic sequencing projects
The pipeline is capable of enhanced or manually assisted reference-based assembly using multiple assemblers and modes; gene predictor combining; and functional annotation of genes and gene products, which makes it suitable for projects of a sensitive nature. Expand
