Laribacter hongkongensis is a facultatively anaerobic, gram-negative bacterium first isolated from the blood and empyema pus of a 36 year-old patient suffering from alcoholic cirrhosis in Hong Kong. Subsequently, it has been found in patients with gastroenteritis, freshwater fish and drinking water reservoirs. It cannot survive in marine fish. A multi-center study has demonstrated its association with community-acquired gastroenteritis/diarrhea. It is motile, seagull or S-shaped, asaccharolytic, and urease-positive. Genome and proteome analysis of L. hongkongensis revealed novel mechanisms for adaptations to survival at different temperatures and habitats (adapted from PubMed 19283063).
