Abstract

The organization of the CTX prophage in environmental strains of Vibrio mimicus was investigated. Sixteen hundred non-sucrose fermenting vibrios were examined for ctx gene by hybridization. Out of 1,600 isolates, 6 V. mimicus isolates contained ctxA gene. The organization of CTX prophage was determined by RFLP using ctxA probe. The CTX prophage integrated at a single site in V. mimicus genome which was present as a single copy flanked by at least a single RS element. Ribotype pattern revealed that a particular clone of V. mimicus acquired the CTXφ in the aquatic environment. This study demonstrated that V. mimicus could act as a reservoir of CTXφ in the aquatic environment.
