BIOLUMINESCENT symbioses range from facultative associations to highly adapted, apparently obligate ones1. The family Anomalopidae (flashlight fishes) encompasses five genera of tropical reef fishes that have large suborbital light organs2. The suborder Ceratioidei (deep-sea anglerfishes) contains 11 families. In nine of these, females have a bioluminescent lure3,4 that contains bacterial symbionts5. In all other fish light-organ symbioses (occuring in 10 families in 5 orders6), the symbionts… Expand

Phylogenetic divergence between the obligate luminous symbionts of flashlight fishes demonstrates specificity of bacteria to host genera.
TLDR
Different genera of anomalopids were found to harbour different species of bacteria, even when the hosts overlapped in geographic range, suggesting that the divergence between bacterial species is not the result of geographic isolation. Expand
The uncultured luminous symbiont of Anomalops katoptron (Beryciformes: Anomalopidae) represents a new bacterial genus.
TLDR
Results suggest that expression of the luminescence system might be continuous in P. katoptron and propose the candidate name Candidatus Photodesmus (Greek: photo = light, desmus = servant) kat optron for the species of bacteria symbiotic with A. kAToptron. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of host–symbiont specificity and codivergence in bioluminescent symbioses
TLDR
In several associations, bacterial species identities contradicted strict host family bacterial species specificity and the hypothesis of codivergence in bioluminescent symbioses was refuted. Expand
Light organ symbioses in fishes.
  • M. Haygood
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Critical reviews in microbiology
  • 1993
TLDR
This article summarizes what is currently known about relationships between light organ symbionts and their hosts, including characteristics of light organ environments, physiology of light organs Symbiotic luminous bacteria housed in elaborate light organs, and the evolution of lightorgan symbiont and their associations. Expand
The strains of bioluminescent bacteria isolated from the White Sea finfishes: genera Photobacterium, Aliivibrio, Vibrio, Shewanella, and first luminous Kosakonia.
TLDR
The obtained data expands the existing body of knowledge about the bioluminescence spread among the bacteria of Nordic latitudes and provides complex information that is crucial for their precise identification. Expand
Evidence of bacterial bioluminescence in a Philippine squid and octopus hosts.
TLDR
Most remarkably, this is the first report on the evidence of bacterial luminescence in an octopus, an organism whose bioluminescent counterparts are typically known to emit light only through surface photophores. Expand
Bacterial endosym bioses in m arine littoral w orm
Symbioses with sulfur bacteria are not restricted to the deep sea. Littoral sediments with hydrogen sulfide undemeath an oxic surface layer are often populated by gutless marine Oligochaeta living inExpand
Genomic and Phylogenetic Characterization of Luminous Bacteria Symbiotic with the Deep-Sea Fish Chlorophthalmus albatrossis (Aulopiformes: Chlorophthalmidae)
  • P. Dunlap, J. Ast
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Applied and Environmental Microbiology
  • 2005
TLDR
Luminous bacteria symbiotic with C. albatrossis, together with certain other strains of luminous bacteria, form a clade that is related to but evolutionarily distinct from P. phosphoreum, and may constitute the major or sole bioluminescent symbiont of several families of deep-sea luminous fishes. Expand
Characterization of the microbiome and bioluminescent symbionts across life stages of Ceratioid Anglerfishes of the Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
16S rDNA sequencing results from adult fishes corroborate the previously published identity of ceratioid bioluminescent symbionts and support the findings that these symbiont do not consistently exhibit host specificity at the host family level. Expand
Ongoing Transposon-Mediated Genome Reduction in the Luminous Bacterial Symbionts of Deep-Sea Ceratioid Anglerfishes
TLDR
Unlike most luminous symbionts, these bacteria are undergoing an evolutionary transition toward small genomes with limited metabolic capabilities, and this work demonstrates that ecological factors other than an intracellular lifestyle can lead to dramatic gene loss and evolutionary changes and that transposon expansions may play important roles in this process.

Relationship of the luminous bacterial symbiont of the Caribbean flashlight fish, Kryptophanaron alfredi (family Anomalopidae) to other luminous bacteria based on bacterial luciferase (luxA) genes
  • M. Haygood
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Archives of Microbiology
  • 1990
TLDR
The hybridization results, sequence comparisons and the mol% G+C of the Kryptophanaron alfredi symbiont luxA gene suggest that the Symbiont may be considered as a new species of luminous Vibrio related to VIBrio harveyi. Expand
Luminous bacteria of a monocentrid fish (Monocentris japonicus) and two anomalopid fishes (Photoblepharon palpebratus and Kryptophanaron alfredi): population sizes and growth within the light organs, and rates of release into the seawater
TLDR
Bacterial doubling times in the light organs of monocentrid and anomalopid fishes were variable and ranged from 7.5 to 135 h in M. japonicus and 8 to 23 h in the anomalopids, and the luminescence of bacteria after their release into the seawater was determined. Expand
Sulfur-oxidizing bacterial endosymbionts: analysis of phylogeny and specificity by 16S rRNA sequences
TLDR
The 16S rRNAs from the bacterial endosymbionts of six marine invertebrates from diverse environments were isolated and partially sequenced and showed that each of the bacterial symbionts is distinct from the others and that all fall within a limited domain of the gamma subdivision of the purple bacteria. Expand
CO‐EVOLUTION OF LUMINOUS BACTERIA AND THEIR EUKARYOTIC HOSTS
TLDR
It is anticipated that new systems will be found that represent states between those described here, and that the luminous bacteria will provide a living model for the gradual evolution from free-living microbes in intracellular organelles. Expand
A Molecular Genetic Classification of Zooxanthellae and the Evolution of Animal-Algal Symbioses
TLDR
Closely related algae were found in dissimilar hosts, suggesting that animal and algal lineages have maintained a flexible evolutionary relation with each other. Expand
DNA-DNA Solution Hybridization Studies of the Bacterial Symbionts of Hydrothermal Vent Tube Worms (Riftia pachyptila and Tevnia jerichonana)
  • Deeanne B. Edwards, D. Nelson
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Applied and environmental microbiology
  • 1991
TLDR
DNA purified from the two most distant sites indicated that all R. pachyptila symbionts are conspecific and that the variability in DNA-DNA hybridization was comparable within or between widely separated vents, and the symbiont of another tube worm, Tevnia jerichonana, was found to be the first case in which distinct hosts possess the same sulfur bacterial symbions. Expand
Luciferase genes cloned from the unculturable luminous bacteroid symbiont of the Caribbean flashlight fish, Kryptophanaron alfredi.
TLDR
Comparison of the hybridization pattern of light organ DNA with that of DNA of a putative symbiotic isolate provides a method for identifying the authentic luminous symbiont regardless of its luminescence, and was used to reject one such isolate. Expand
Phylogeny of the Vibrionaceae, and recommendation for two new genera, Listonella and Shewanella
TLDR
Results of this study indicate a good correlation between the taxonomy of the Vibrionaceae established using conventional and molecular genetic data and evolutionary relationships deduced from 5S rRNA sequences, however, several species require reconsideration of their taxonomic status, based on the new information obtained in this study.

Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism Analysis Reveals High Levels of Genetic Divergence Among the Light Organ Symbionts of Flashlight Fish.
TLDR
The symbionts phylogeny is consistent with the proposed phylogeny of the host fish family and suggests that each symbiont strain coevolved with its host fish species. Expand
Bacterial Origin of Luminescence in Marine Animals
TLDR
Bacterial luciferase activity was detected in light organ extracts of squids, fishes, and pyrosomes, suggesting that these systems are derived from bacteria-animal symbioses, andalyses of the decay kinetics show that the luciferases from the squid, ceratioid, andPyrosome light organs are all similar to bacterial luciferased from the genus Photobacterium, while those from the anomalopid light organ are different.
