A molecular systematic survey of cultured microbial associates of deep-water marine invertebrates.
A taxonomic survey was conducted to determine the microbial diversity held within the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Marine Microbial Culture Collection (HBMMCC). The collection consists ofExpand
Associated bacterial communities of two deep-water sponges
A combination of approaches was used to examine the bacterial communities associated with 2 deep-water Scleritoderma spp. sponges. Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis analysis of partial 16S rRNAExpand
Neopeltolide, a macrolide from a lithistid sponge of the family Neopeltidae.
A new marine-derived macrolide designated as neopeltolide (1) has been isolated from a deep-water sponge of the family Neopeltidae. Its structure was elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic dataExpand
Vibrio caribbeanicus sp. nov., isolated from the marine sponge Scleritoderma cyanea.
A Gram-negative, oxidase-positive, catalase-negative, facultatively anaerobic, motile, curved rod-shaped bacterium, strain N384(T), was isolated from a marine sponge (Scleritoderma cyanea; phylumExpand
Comparison of the anaerobic microbiota of deep-water Geodia spp. and sandy sediments in the Straits of Florida
Marine sediments and sponges may show steep variations in redox potential, providing niches for both aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms. Geodia spp. and sediment specimens from the Straits ofExpand
Two distinct microbial communities revealed in the sponge Cinachyrella
Marine sponges are vital components of benthic and coral reef ecosystems, providing shelter and nutrition for many organisms. In addition, sponges act as an essential carbon and nutrient link betweenExpand
Haematology and biochemistry of warru (Petrogale lateralis MacDonnell Ranges race) in captivity and the wild.
OBJECTIVE Use haematology, biochemistry and protein electrophoresis analyses to establish reference values for, and describe the health status of, wild and captive colonies of critically endangeredExpand
Discorhabdin P, a new enzyme inhibitor from a deep-water Caribbean sponge of the genus Batzella.
Discorhabdin P (1), a new discorhabdin analogue, has been isolated from a deep-water marine sponge of the genus Batzella. Discorhabdin P (1) inhibited the phosphatase activity of calcineurin and theExpand
Diversity of the Bacterial Communities Associated with the Azooxanthellate Deep Water Octocorals Leptogorgia minimata, Iciligorgia schrammi, and Swiftia exertia
This study examined the microbiota associated with the marine azooxanthellate octocorals Leptogorgia minimata, Swiftia exertia, and Iciligorgia schrammi collected from moderate depths (45 m).Expand
Floating geomembrane covers for odour control and biogas collection and utilization in municipal lagoons
The use of anaerobic lagoons as the first pond in waste stabilization pond systems in tropical and warm-temperature climates is considered a highly cost-effective and practical way to treat municipalExpand
