Natural products from microbes associated with insects
Here we review discoveries of secondary metabolites from microbes associated with insects. We mainly focus on natural products, where the ecological role has been at least partially elucidated,Expand

Natural products and morphogenic activity of γ-Proteobacteria associated with the marine hydroid polyp Hydractinia echinata.
Illumina 16S rRNA gene sequencing was used to profile the associated bacterial community of the marine hydroid Hydractinia echinata, a long-standing model system in developmental biology. 56Expand

Genome Sequences of Three Pseudoalteromonas Strains (P1-8, P1-11, and P1-30), Isolated from the Marine Hydroid Hydractinia echinata
ABSTRACT The genomes of three Pseudoalteromonas strains (P1-8, P1-11, and P1-30) were sequenced and assembled. These genomes will inform future study of the genes responsible for the production ofExpand

Biosynthesis, Synthesis, and Activities of Barnesin A, a NRPS-PKS Hybrid Produced by an Anaerobic Epsilonproteobacterium.
Despite the wealth of physiological knowledge and plentiful genomes available, only few natural products of anaerobic bacteria have been identified until today and even less have been linked to theirExpand

Two distinct bacterial biofilm components trigger metamorphosis in the colonial hydrozoan Hydractinia echinata
In the marine environment bacterial-induced metamorphosis of larvae is a widespread cross-kingdom communication phenomenon and critical for the persistence of many marine invertebrates. However, theExpand

Hybrid Polyketides from a Hydractinia-Associated Cladosporium sphaerospermum SW67 and Their Putative Biosynthetic Origin
Five hybrid polyketides (1a, 1b, and 2–4) containing tetramic acid core including a new hybrid polyketide, cladosin L (1), were isolated from the marine fungus Cladosporium sphaerospermum SW67, whichExpand

Secondary metabolites from marine microbes
In this project we analyze the chemical potential and interaction mechanisms of marine microbes associated with marine invertebrates or biofilms. Marine biofilms are the main cause of the so calledExpand
