Vibrio cyclitrophicus (previously known as Vibrio cyclotrophicus ) [1] is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH)-degrading marine bacterium.[2] The type strain is P-2P44T (=ATCC 700982T=PICC 106644T).

Description[edit]

Its cells are rod-shaped, some cells being curved. A high percentage of cells are motile during exponential growth, and a few cells are motile during stationary phase. Cells possess either one or two polar or subpolar flagella. Exponential-phase cells measured 0.6-5.0 μm. Some cells form involution bodies during stationary phase.
