Abstract:

Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a halophilic bacterium that commonly inhabits the marine and estuarine environments. This organism is known as one of the major leading causative agent for gastroenteritis, often related to consumption of raw or undercooked seafood. In this study, molluscan shellfish collected from various estuarine environments of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts of Karnataka were tested and analyzed for the presence of V. parahaemolyticus. These isolates were confirmed both by phenotypic, genotypic methods and checked for presence of virulence factors too. A total of 203 isolates of Vibrio parahaemolyticus were isolated of which, 20 isolates showed positive for tdh gene. The 20 isolates were further studied for Kanagawa phenomenon, production of thermostable direct haemolysin, antibiotic susceptibility and the presence of antibiotic resistant gene, which are related to pathogenicity in humans.


Keywords: V.parahaemolyticus, haemolysin,shellfish and virulence,molluscan shellfish.
