Summary of "Vibrio cholerae Sheds Its Coat to Make Itself Comfortable in the Gut."

Invertebrates molt, furry mammals shed, and human skin exfoliates. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Zingl et al. describe a virulence mechanism in which the bacterial pathogen Vibrio cholerae jettisons outer membrane proteins and lipids in vesicles as it enters the mammalian intestine.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Strains of VIBRIO CHOLERAE containing O ANTIGENS group 1. All are CHOLERA-causing strains (serotypes). There are two biovars (biotypes): cholerae and eltor (El Tor).

Strains of VIBRIO CHOLERAE containing O ANTIGENS group 139. This strain emerged in India in 1992 and caused a CHOLERA epidemic.

The etiologic agent of CHOLERA.

An acute diarrheal disease endemic in India and Southeast Asia whose causative agent is VIBRIO CHOLERAE. This condition can lead to severe dehydration in a matter of hours unless quickly treated.
