Query: NC_016602:173314 Vibrio furnissii NCTC 11218 chromosome 1, complete sequence Lineage: Vibrio furnissii; Vibrio; Vibrionaceae; Vibrionales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Vibrio furnissii, formerly Vibrio fluvialis biovar II, is occassionally isolated from diarrheal cases, but it has not been confirmed as the causative agent in most cases. Vibrio furnissii is a widespread, free-living, marine bacterium that is associated with crustacean zoonoses and acute gastroenteritis in humans.

General Information: This bacterium was isolated from a seawater sediment sample in the North Sea. The species is able to use Mihagol-S (C14,15-n-alkanes) as a principal carbon source. Using n-alkanes as a sole carbon source causes the strains to produce extracellular and membrane-bound surface-active glucose lipids. Phenotypic analysis showed a restricted nutritional profile, high halotolerance, the absence of fermentative metabolism, and a low G+C content. This, in combination with a 16S phylogenetic study, allowed the placing of this organism into a new genus.
