A gram-negative strictly aerobic curved rod-shaped halophilic and fermentative agarolytic bacterium involved in marine organism infections.
Vibrio agarivorans is an oxidase positive that contained polarly flagellated bacilli which ferment glucose without the production of gas and does not produced decarboxylases. It is able to use various compounds as sole carbon and energy sources.
Vibrio agarivorans is mostly found in seawater that has a unique characteristics which can able to liquefy the solid agar plate due to its extracellular agarase activity exhibited at temperature about 40’C with pH 7.6.
Vibrio agarivorans undergo hydrolytic activity and the main product is oligosaccharide at the degree of polymerization containing 2,988 base pairs.
Species: Vibrio aestuarianus
