ABSTRACT We characterized 18 Vibrio isolates, including 15 recovered from human clinical specimens, and found that they clustered with two previously characterized Vibrio navarrensis isolates in a phylogenetic analysis. Four of the 18 strains may represent a new Vibrio species, distinct from V. navarrensis. The potential role of V. navarrensis in human disease needs further investigation.

CRISPR-Cas systems are present predominantly on mobile genetic elements in Vibrio species
The data show that CRISPR-Cas systems are phylogenetically widespread but sporadic in occurrence, actively evolving, and present on MGEs within Vibrionaceae. Expand


Vibrio navarrensis biotype pommerensis: a new biotype of V. navarrensis isolated in the German Baltic Sea.
The determination of phenotypic and genotypic traits of a group of closely related Vibrio strains from the Baltic Sea did not allow species designation, so these Vibrios are suggested to represent a new biotype, named V. navarrensis biotype pommerensis. Expand
Identification of Vibrio Isolates by a Multiplex PCR Assay and rpoB Sequence Determination
The PCR assay provides a simple, rapid, and reliable tool for identification of the major Vibrio pathogens in clinical samples, and rpoB sequencing provides an additional identification tool for other species in the genus Vibri. Expand

Vibrio and Related Organisms
Vibrionaceae isolates should be submitted to public health laboratories, as they are monitored under the CDC’s International Emerging Infections Program and Vibrio Surveillance System; they may also be needed for confirmation and toxin testing. 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
Polymorphism in repeated 16S rRNA genes is a common property of type strains and environmental isolates of the genus Vibrio.
Analysis of the 16S rDNAs obtained from cultures of single colonies of either type collection strains or environmental strains of the genus Vibrio revealed the presence of polymorphism in every one of the strains examined, implying that the divergence of the different versions of this stem-loop is relatively ancient.

Epidemiology, Genetics, and Ecology of ToxigenicVibrio cholerae
It appears that the continual emergence of new toxigenic strains and their selective enrichment during cholera outbreaks constitute an essential component of the natural ecosystem for the evolution of epidemic V. cholerae strains and genetic elements that mediate the transfer of virulence genes.

Divergence and Redundancy of 16S rRNA Sequences in Genomes with Multiple rrn Operons
An upper bound of roughly threefold overestimation of bacterial diversity resulting from cloning and sequencing of 16S rRNA genes from the environment is suggested, however, the inclusion of genomes with a single rrn operon may lower this correction factor to approximately 2.5. Expand
