The cytolysin gene of Vibrio vulnificus: sequence and relationship to the Vibrio cholerae E1 Tor hemolysin gene.

By K Yamamoto, A C Wright, J B Kaper and J G Morris


A cytolysin of ca. 56 kilodaltons has been suggested as a possible virulence factor in Vibrio vulnificus infections. We sequenced the DNA encoding cytolytic activity and found that the sequence contained two open reading frames, vvhA and vvhB. vvhA encoded the structural gene for the cytolysin and contained the N-terminal amino acid sequence previously reported for the protein. Regions of the vvhA gene showed homology to the structural gene for the Vibrio cholerae E1 Tor hemolysin
