Bias in Template-to-Product Ratios in Multitemplate PCR
ABSTRACT Bias introduced by the simultaneous amplification of specific genes from complex mixtures of templates remains poorly understood. To explore potential causes and the extent of bias in PCR
Evidence for a core gut microbiota in the zebrafish
Gut microbiota membership in domesticated and recently caught zebrafish was strikingly similar, with a shared core gut microbiota, and the zebra fish intestinal habitat selects for specific bacterial taxa despite radical differences in host provenance and domestication status.
The evolutionary diversification of cyanobacteria: molecular-phylogenetic and paleontological perspectives.
It is suggested that the clade of cyanobacteria marked by cell differentiation diverged once between 2,450 and 2,100 Ma, providing an internal bacterial calibration point for studies of molecular evolution in early organisms.
Characterization of an Autotrophic Sulfide-Oxidizing Marine Arcobacter sp. That Produces Filamentous Sulfur
No ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase could be detected on the basis of radioisotopic activity or by Western blotting techniques, suggesting an alternative pathway of CO2 fixation.
Biogeography and Ecological Setting of Indian Ocean Hydrothermal Vents
Most organisms found at these Indian Ocean vent fields have evolutionary affinities with western Pacific vent faunas, but a shrimp that ecologically dominates Indian Ocean vents closely resembles its Mid-Atlantic counterpart.
Dominance of one bacterial phylotype at a Mid-Atlantic Ridge hydrothermal vent site.
It is shown here that in a Mid-Atlantic Ridge hydrothermal vent habitat, the surface microbial community consists largely of only one bacterial phylogenetic type (phylotype) as indicated by the dominance of a single 16S rRNA sequence.
Prokaryotic Cells in the Hydrothermal Vent Tube Worm Riftia pachyptila Jones: Possible Chemoautotrophic Symbionts.
The existence of a symbiotic association between vestimentiferan tube worms from deep-sea hydrothermal vents and chemoautotrophic sulfur-oxidizing prokaryotes, based on histological and enzymatic
Intracellular coexistence of methano- and thioautotrophic bacteria in a hydrothermal vent mussel.
The coexistence of two phylogenetically distinct symbiont species within a single cell, a condition not previously known in any metazoan, is demonstrated in the gills of a Mid-Atlantic Ridge
Trophic ecology of massive shrimp aggregations at a Mid‐Atlantic Ridge hydrothermal vent site
Overall, the data indicate a nutritional symbiosis of the shrimp with their epibionts and possibly also with a separate gut microflora.
Expression of form I and form II Rubisco in chemoautotrophic symbioses: Implications for the interpretation of stable carbon isotope values
Invertebrate-chemoautotroph symbioses, in which the bacterial partner provides an internal source of autotrophically fixed carbon for its host, fall into two main groups based on previously reported
