Summary of "Virulence properties of Vibrio vulnificus isolated from diseased zoea of freshness shrimp Macrobrachium rosenbergii."

Macrobrachium rosenbergii is one of the most economically important freshwater shimp, with fast growth and high nutrient content in the agricultural development of China. However, it had been suffering diseases infection, causing mass death and great economic losses. In the present study, a bacteria strain was isolated from the diseased zoea of M. rosenbergii and was identified as Vibrio vulnificus by biochemical characteristics and 16S rRNA homologous analysis. The infection test showed that the strain GXFL1-3 was pathogenic to zoea and postlarva of M. rosenbergii, and the half lethal dose (LD) were 1.16 × 10 CFU/mL and 1.45 × 10 CFU/mL, respectively. Detection of virulence-associated genes by PCR indicated that GXFL1-3 was positive for fur, OmpU, acfA, flaA, vvhA, vvp and tcp, the detection of extracellular enzymes and hemolysin showed that GXFL1-3 was positive for protease, amylase, lecithin, urease and hemolysin activity, further supporting its pathogenicity. A duplex PCR for rapid detection of V. vulnificus was established. Only V. vulnificus could amplify two specific bands of flaA and fur, while the other six strains of Vibrio were negative. The minimum detectable amount of template was 2.4 × 10 CFU/mL through sensitivity test.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A species of halophilic bacteria in the genus VIBRIO, which lives in warm SEAWATER. It can cause infections in those who eat raw contaminated seafood or have open wounds exposed to seawater.

A species of gram-negative bacteria in the genus VIBRIO, isolated from SHELLFISH, as well as from human diarrheal stools and ear infections.

A strain of the VIBRIO CHOLERAE bacteria belonging to serogroup non-O1, infecting humans and other PRIMATES. It is related to VIBRIO CHOLERAE O1, but causes a disease less severe than CHOLERA. Eating raw shellfish contaminated with the bacteria results in GASTROENTERITIS.

A metalloproteinase which degrades helical regions of native collagen to small fragments. Preferred cleavage is -Gly in the sequence -Pro-Xaa-Gly-Pro-. Six forms (or 2 classes) have been isolated from Clostridium histolyticum that are immunologically cross-reactive but possess different sequences and different specificities. Other variants have been isolated from Bacillus cereus, Empedobacter collagenolyticum, Pseudomonas marinoglutinosa, and species of Vibrio and Streptomyces. EC

A species of gram-negative bacteria in the genus VIBRIO, the causative agent of cold water vibriosis, a HEMORRHAGIC SEPTICEMIA of ATLANTIC SALMON.
