Phylogenetic Analysis of Microbial Communities in Different Regions of the Gastrointestinal Tract in Panaque nigrolineatus, a Wood-Eating Fish
TLDR
Using 16S rRNA gene phylogeny, it is reported that the P. nigrolineatus gastrointestinal tract possesses a microbial community closely related to microorganisms capable of cellulose degradation and nitrogen fixation. Expand
Investigation into the fungal diversity within different regions of the gastrointestinal tract of Panaque nigrolineatus, a wood-eating fish
TLDR
This study is the first to examine the fungal community in a xylivorous fish and results support the hypothesis that diet influences fungal distribution and diversity within the gastrointestinal tract of P. nigrolineatus. Expand
Anaerobic Treatment of Brackishwater Aquaculture Sludge: An Alternative to Waste Stabilization Ponds
TLDR
A reduction in potential environmentally harmful factors such as salinization, land requirements, greenhouse gas emissions, as well as transportation costs are achieved, making the UASB reactor an attractive possible alternative for saline aquaculture sludge management. Expand
Examination of a Culturable Microbial Population from the Gastrointestinal Tract of the Wood-Eating Loricariid Catfish Panaque nigrolineatus
TLDR
This study verifies the presence of a resident microbial community in the gastrointestinal tract of P. nigrolineatus by fluorescence microscopy and focuses on the cellulose-degrading members by culture-based and 13 C-labeled cellulose DNA stable-isotope probing (SIP) approaches. Expand
Effect of Diet on the Enteric Microbiome of the Wood-Eating Catfish Panaque nigrolineatus
TLDR
These findings suggest that the P. nigrolineatus gut environment selects for an enteric community based on function, rather than a vertically transferred symbiotic relationship, which may provide an advantage to an organism that switches between dietary strategies to survive a highly variable environment. Expand
Bacterial community analysis of marine recirculating aquaculture system bioreactors for complete nitrogen removal established from a commercial inoculum.
TLDR
It is indicated that environmental seawater can be a favorable enhancement to the bacterial consortium of recirculating aquaculture systems biofilters. Expand
Nitrogenase diversity and activity in the gastrointestinal tract of the wood-eating catfish Panaque nigrolineatus
TLDR
The intake of a cellulose rich diet and the presence of a suitable environment for nitrogen fixation suggest that the GI tract microbial community may allow a unique trophic niche for P. nigrolineatus among fish. Expand
Metagenomic Insights Into the Diversity of Halophilic Microorganisms Indigenous to the Karak Salt Mine, Pakistan
TLDR
The study of the halophiles in the Karak salt mine provides clues for species contributing to the maintenance of biogeochemical cycles of the ecosystem, the first report of a metagenomic study of any hypersaline region of Pakistan. Expand
Wood degradation by Panaque nigrolineatus, a neotropical catfish: diversity and activity of gastrointestinal tract lignocellulolytic and nitrogen fixing communities
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the Neotropical catfish, Panaque nigrolineatus, which ingests large quantities of wood as part of its diet and has been shown to include bacterial and fungal communities participating in both lignocellulose degradation and nitrogen fixation that are taxonomically distinct from all other wood-feeding organisms.
