Abstract

Twenty-five Vibrio strains belonging to nine different species, isolated in common mussels, were examined for the presence of different virulence genes: ctxA, tcpA, toxR, toxS, ace, zot and vpi previously found in pathogenic Vibrio cholerae strains. Our results suggest that there is a wide dissemination of Vibrio cholerae virulence genes among the various Vibrio species tested. This finding raises the question of whether a different approach should be taken to study "environmental" Vibrio strains.
