extracellular and surface-bound biological activities of vibrio fluvialis, vibrio furnissii and related species.twenty-seven vibrio strains were assessed for virulence-associated biological activities, including iron chelation, hydrolases, haemolysis and haemagglutination. all strains hydrolysed dna, chitin, gelatin and casein, produced siderophores, and lysed red blood cells. all v. fluvialis, v. cholerae and v. mimicus strains exhibited diverse lipolytic activity distinct from more discriminate lipolysis by v. furnissii. v. furnissii manifested fibrin and mucin hydrolysis but no phosphate or esculin hyd ...19892779486
vibrio furnissii (formerly aerogenic biogroup of vibrio fluvialis), a new species isolated from human feces and the environment.strains formerly classified as the aerogenic (gas-producing) biogroup of vibrio fluvialis were shown by dna relatedness to be a separate species. the species was named vibrio furnissii sp. nov. (type strain atcc 35016 = cdc b3215). three strains of v. furnissii were 79% or more related to the type strain of v. furnissii and about 50% related to the type strain of v. fluvialis. v. fluvialis strains were 40 to 64% related to the type strain of v. furnissii. divergence in related sequences was only ...19836630464
vibrio fluvialis attachs to but does not enter hela cell monolayers.considering the possibility that invasiveness could be a neglected factor of virulence in vibrio fluvialis-linked enteritis, since a dysenteric form of the disease was seen in bangladesh, we studied 12 brazilian strains of the organism, six clinical and six environmental, to determine whether they might be able to enter into hela cell monolayers or would carry plasmids incidentally involved in invasiveness. four human and two environmental isolates attached to but did not enter into the cells. t ...19947885249
