Vibrio harveyi has caused devastating loses in mariculture through vibrioses infection. VirB11 plays a critical role in bacteria substrate translocation and virulence. The present study is a bioinformatic analysis of VirB11 in Vibrio harveyi. VirB11 was cloned and analyzed, unveiling an encoded nucleotide sequence of 1,034 bp coding 338 amino acids. A molecular weight and pI of 37,703.39 Da and 6.31 were respectively predicted. No signal peptides and transmembranes were predicted. A conserved P-loop NTPase was predicted, multiple predictions also included 3D module.
