Characterization of a Vibrio alginolyticus strain, isolated from Alaskan oysters, carrying a hemolysin gene similar to the thermostable direct hemolysin-related hemolysin (trh) of Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
It should be noted that hemolysin is a well-known virulence factor, and hemolytic activity has been detected in other Chromobacterium species, such as C.
According to a recent hypothesis, multiple passages of Brucella strain in vitro can increase the expression of hemolysin gene, which might explain their pathogenicity and relation with hemolytic anemia [12].
By using the primers described by Voth et al, (5) PCR detected the gene encoding the hemolysin, sordellilysin (sdl), in the C sordellii isolate.
These include alpha-hemolysin, beta hemolysin, and Penton Valentine leucocidin (PVL), and toxic shock syndrome toxin (TST).4

According to literature (Tonin et al., 2012), leptospirosis causes hemolytic anemia and capillary damage because of the hemolysin expressed by the bacteria.
Hemolysin production was established on Columbia blood agar with 5% sheep blood (OXOID, United Kingdom), as previously described [16].
Detection of the thermostable direct hemolysin gene (tdh) and the thermostable direct hemolysin-related hemolysin gene (trh) of Vibrio parahaemolyticus by polymerase chain reaction.
As DNA synthesis takes place, the polymer end of the tagged nucleotide enters the hemolysin nanopore opening, where a distinct current blockade is produced and measured.
