Vibrio

 [vib´re-o]
a genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, motile, straight or curved rod-shaped bacteria. V. cho´lerae is the etiologic agent of Asiatic cholera; V. metschniko´vii causes gastroenteritis; V. parahaemoly´ticus causes gastroenteritis due to the consumption of raw or improperly cooked seafood (especially in Japan); and V. vulni´ficus causes septicemia and cellulitis in persons who have consumed raw seafood.

vibrio

 [vib´re-o]
an organism of the genus Vibrio, or other spiral motile organism.
cholera vibrio Vibrio cholerae.
noncholera v's a group of microorganisms that are similar to Vibrio cholerae but differ from it immunologically and having variable pathogenic properties. Many that were isolated from water or from the feces of individuals with mild diarrheal disease have been named for the place of their discovery, such as V. danu´bicus, V. ghin´da, and V. massau´ah.

Vibrio

(vib'rē-ō),
A genus of motile (occasionally nonmotile), nonsporeforming, aerobic to facultatively anaerobic, gram-negative bacteria (family Spirillaceae) containing short (0.5-3.0 mcm), curved or straight rods that occur singly or which are occasionally united into S-shapes or spirals. Motile cells contain a single polar flagellum; in some species, two or more flagella occur in one polar tuft. Some of these organisms are saprophytes in salt and fresh water and in soil; others are parasites or pathogens. The type species is Vibrio cholerae.
[L. vibro, to vibrate]
