Vibrio natriegens

prokaryotic facultative-anaerobic gram-negative halophilic


prokaryotic facultative-anaerobic gram-negative


  1. Can be used for cloning thanks to its fast doubling time
  2. Reaches high cell densities and good for protein expression


  1. Vibrio natriegens ( ATCC14048): a non pathogenic strain

Life Cycle

Vibrio natriegens has a doubling time of under 10 min in optimal conditions ( between 35°C and 37°C) It is a marine organism, so it is important to add additional salt to the media for an final concentration of 2.5%.
