Vibrio Harvei

  • Gram-negative
  • bioluminescent
  • marine
  • rod-shaped
  • motile (via polar flagella),
  • facultatively anaerobic
  • halophilic (extremophile for high salt)
  • competent for both fermentative and respiratory metabolism.
  • grow between 4°C and 35°C.
  • lacks a LuxI/R quorum sensing system(which fischeri uses), instead employs a hybrid quorum-sensing circuit, detecting its autoinducer via a membrane-bound histidine kinase and using a phosphorelay.
