Taxonomy388396 - Vibrio fischeri (strain MJ11)
Last modifiedFebruary 27, 2018
Genome assembly and annotationi GCA_000020845.1 from ENA/EMBL
Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Aliivibrio salmonicida (strain LFI1238) pan proteome (fasta)

Bacteria of the genus Vibrio are common and abundant in microbial communities associated with marine animals where they influence their hosts in important ways, either as coevolved beneficial symbionts or by causing diseases such as coral bleaching. These Vibrio-host interactions appear to play a critical role in the survival and dissemination of these bacteria in the marine environment.

The marine bacterium Vibrio fischeri is a specific symbiont in the light-emitting organs of certain squids and fishes where it produces luminescence through the expression of the lux operon. Luminescence is controlled by acyl-homoserine lactone quorum sensing. Strain MJ11 was collected in Japan.
