Bacterial community composition differs with species and toxigenicity of the diatom Pseudo-nitzschia

  title={Bacterial community composition differs with species and toxigenicity of the diatom Pseudo-nitzschia},
  author={Michele L. Guannel and M. Claire Horner-Devine and Gabrielle Rocap},
Interactions between bacteria and members of the marine diatom genus Pseudonitzschia may enhance production of the toxin domoic acid (DA) by toxigenic strains of Pseudonitzschia. To gain a broader understanding of relationships between bacteria and Pseudo-nitzschia species, we used automated ribosomal intergenic spacer analysis (ARISA) to assess the composition of the bacterial communities coexisting with 18 Pseudo-nitzschia strains representing 6 species. For cultures surveyed across multiple… CONTINUE READING
