Abstract :

Members of the genus Pseudovibrio are isolated worldwide from a great variety of marine sources as both free-living and host-associated bacteria. Pseudovibrio-related bacteria are shown to proliferate under extreme oligotrophic conditions, tolerate high heavy-metal concentrations, and metabolize potentially toxic compounds. The data available indicate that these bacteria are mainly beneficial to the host and provide the host with both vitamins/cofactors and protection from potential pathogens via the synthesis of antimicrobial secondary metabolites.
