The complete DNA sequence of the Ectocarpus siliculosus Virus EsV-1 genome.
TLDR
The EsV-1 genome is the largest viral DNA sequenced to date and contains components of a surprisingly complex signal transduction system with six different hybrid histidine protein kinases and four putative serine/threonineprotein kinases. Expand
Oligoalginate Recognition and Oxidative Burst Play a Key Role in Natural and Induced Resistance of Sporophytes of Laminariales
TLDR
It is found that an alginate-triggered oxidative burst significantly induces resistance in Laminaria digitata against infection, inferring that oligoalginate signals are important cues in the interaction between laminarialean kelps and potential pathogens. Expand
Phycodnaviridae– large DNA algal viruses
TLDR
Accumulating evidence indicates that the phycodnaviruses and their genes are ancient, thus allowing significant differences to have evolved, and then compares their genomes. Expand
Modelling the Chlorophyll a Content of the River Rhine - Interrelation between Riverine Algal Production and Population Biomass of Grazers, Rotifers and the Zebra Mussel, Dreissena polymorpha
TLDR
Both groups were unable to control algal development in River Rhine between km 359 and 860, due to favourable growth conditions for phytoplankton, explained by modelling as a matter of improved food supply. Expand
MOLECULAR SYSTEMATICS OF ECTOCARPUS AND KUCKUCKIA (ECTOCARPALES, PHAEOPHYCEAE) INFERRED FROM PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF NUCLEAR‐ AND PIASTTD‐ENCODED DNA SEQUENCES
TLDR
A hypothesis on the origin and dispersal of E. siliculosus suggests several natural dispersal events during periods of global cooling as well as recent and possibly anthropogenic disperseal events. Expand
Analysis of the Flagellar Beat Pattern of Male Ectocarpus Siliculosus Gametes (Phaeophyta) in Relation to Chemotactic Stimulation by Female Cells
TLDR
High-speed cinemicrography shows thatgametes moving close to a coverglass perform planar bending waves with their front flagellum, and freely swimming gametes exhibit elliptical and rotary wave motions, suggesting a relationship between thigmotaxis and mode of action of the front flagesllum. Expand
New members of a group of DNA viruses infecting brown algae
TLDR
A synopsis including new molecular and biochemical data shows that these viruses share common characteristics: genomes of double‐stranded DNA, infection mode, morphology, extended temperence, and narrow host‐specificity that distinguish the brown algal viruses from all other known plant viruses.

SEXUAL PHEROMONES IN ALGAE
Revue sur les interactions sexuelles et les phenomenes de reconnaissance cellulaire chez les Algues vertes et Phacophycophyta marine
Viruses in marine brown algae.
TLDR
Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis demonstrated that in addition to EsV, other brown algal viruses also possess large double-stranded DNA as genomes, although their sizes differ significantly among species. Expand
Genome structure of a virus infecting the marine brown alga Ectocarpus siliculosus.
TLDR
It is proposed that the native Ectocarpus virus genome is a circular DNA molecule whose double strand is interrupted by single-stranded regions that produces large linear as well as fragmented DNA. Expand
