Detection of bacteria of the family Spirochaetaceae in the crystalline style of 11 species of endemic gastropods from Lake Baikal is reported. Investigation by transmission and scanning electron microscopy showed that these spirochetes belonged to the genus Cristispira.
Two cyanobacterial strains, Pseudanabaena sp. 0411 and Synechococcus sp. 0431, were isolated from a sample collected in the Kotel'nikovskii hot spring of the Baikal rift. According to the results of light and transmission electron microscopy, as well as of the phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene, these cyanobacteria were classified as Pseudanabaena… (More)
