Abstract

This study was aimed for the detection of Vibrio parahaemolyticus by biochemical and molecular methods in seafood samples collected from the markets of Cochin located at the southwest coast of India.Atotal of seventy-two V. parahaemolyticus cultures were isolated by selecting sucrose and cellobiose non-fermenting colonies. All the biochemically confirmed strains were found to have 368-bp toxR gene fragment, while an additional 24% of the samples were confirmed as V. parahaemolyticus by toxR based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) from enrichment broths.
