Summary

V. parahaemolyticus, an estuarine bacterium widely distributed in natural aquatic environments around the world, is a well-known food-borne pathogen causing gastrointestinal disease. It survives stresses of nutrient deprivation and low temperature. The cells recovered after a temperature upshift probably represented the regrowth of a few surviving cells. These surviving cells were capable of growth and multiplication with limited nutrients at an extraordinary rate when the temperature was upshifted.
