Abundance and diversity of aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria in saline lakes on the Tibetan plateau.


Aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic (AAP) bacteria are heterotrophic prokaryotes that are capable of utilizing light as an energy source but are not capable of producing molecular oxygen. Recently, multiple studies have found that AAP bacteria are widely distributed in oceans and estuaries and may play an important role in carbon cycling. However, AAP bacteria… (More)
