Abstract

Type III secretion genes in Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida are located on a large plasmid of approximately 140 kb. Cultivation of this organism at elevated temperatures such as 25 degrees C can, however, result in loss of this plasmid. This is accompanied by a loss of virulence for cultured fish cells.
