Vibrio vulnificus metalloprotease VvpE is essentially required for swarming.

Abstract

Bacterial swarming constitutes a good in vitro model for surface adherence and colonization, and is accompanied by expressions of virulence factors related to invasiveness. In this study, it was determined that Vibrio vulnificus swarming was abolished by mutation of the vvpE gene encoding a metalloprotease VvpE and this swarming defect was recovered by… (More)
