MAGALHAES, Marcelo; MAGALHAES, Vera; ANTAS, Maria G.  and  TATENO, Seiki. Isolation of urease-positive Vibrio parahaemolyticus from diarrheal patients in Northeast Brazi. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 1991, vol.33, n.4, pp.263-265. ISSN 1678-9946.

Of 21 human fecal strains of Vibrio parahaemolyticus, isolated on the Northeast Coast of Brazil, eight (38%) were urease positive. Most of these strains, in contrast to the urease-negative ones, did not produce the hemolysin responsible for the Kanagawa phenomenon.

Keywords : Vibrio parahaemolyticus; Vibrio diarrhea; Vibrio urease; Kanagawa phenomenon.
