Influence of Alginate on Attachment of Vibrio spp. to Stainless Steel Surfaces in Seawater.

Abstract

The influence of alginate on the attachment of Vibrio alginolyticus and Vibrio pelagius biovar II to stainless steel was investigated. When the bacteria were in stationary phase, alginate decreased the number of attached bacteria in the case of each Vibrio sp. In contrast, when V. pelagius biovar II was grown on alginate and harvested in log phase… (More)
