ABSTRACT Forty-four novel strains of Gammaproteobacteria were cultivated from coastal and pelagic regions of the Pacific Ocean using high-throughput culturing methods that rely on dilution to extinction in very low nutrient media. Phylogenetic analysis showed that the isolates fell into five rRNA clades, all of which contained rRNA gene sequences reported previously from seawater environmental gene clone libraries (SAR92, OM60, OM182, BD1-7, and KI89A). Bootstrap analyses of phylogenetic… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Recovery of novel bacterial diversity from mangrove sediment
TLDR
The results significantly expand the knowledge of the bacterial diversity of the unique mangrove environment and reveal a diversity of sequences that were mostly novel. Expand
Functional characteristics of culturable bacterioplankton from marine and estuarine environments.
TLDR
The metabolic capacity of bacterioplankton was investigated, as such information is necessary to fully understand carbon cycling and other biogeochemical processes. Expand
Expansion of Cultured Bacterial Diversity by Large-Scale Dilution-to-Extinction Culturing from a Single Seawater Sample
TLDR
This study showed that a large number of novel bacterial strains could be obtained by an extensive HTC from even a small number of samples, as exemplified by numerous isolates of the SAR11 clade and Verrucomicrobia. Expand
Presence of Ecophysiologically Diverse Populations within Cobetia marina Strains Isolated from Marine Invertebrate, Algae and the Environments
TLDR
The study found all strains tolerated CdCl2 concentrations up to 875 mM and phenotypic features of the strains isolated from degraded alga thallus differed with the type strain C. marina LMG 2217T, suggesting an ecologically adapted population of C.Marina at a subspecies level. Expand
A taxonomic framework for emerging groups of ecologically important marine gammaproteobacteria based on the reconstruction of evolutionary relationships using genome-scale data
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a reliable allocation of members of the oligotrophic marine gammaproteobacteria group and related species to higher taxonomic ranks is possible by phylogenetic analyses of whole proteomes but also of the RNA polymerase beta subunit, whereas phylogenetic reconstructions based on 16S rRNA genes alone resulted in unstable tree topologies with only insignificant bootstrap support. Expand
Lentisphaera araneosa gen. nov., sp. nov, a transparent exopolymer producing marine bacterium, and the description of a novel bacterial phylum, Lentisphaerae.
TLDR
Two phylogenetically distinct marine strains producing transparent exopolymers (TEP) were cultivated from Oregon coast seawater by dilution to extinction in a high throughput culturing format and consistently formed a new phylum-level lineage within the domain Bacteria. Expand
Diversity of cultivated and metabolically active aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria along an oligotrophic gradient in the Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
This is the first study to document extensively the diversity of AAP isolates and to unveil the active AAP community in an oligotrophic marine environment and highlights the existing gaps in the understanding of the AAP bacteria ecology, especially in the Mediterranean Sea and likely globally. Expand
Cultivation of Dominant Freshwater Bacterioplankton Lineages Using a High-Throughput Dilution-to-Extinction Culturing Approach Over a 1-Year Period
TLDR
This study successfully implemented a dilution-to-extinction cultivation strategy to cultivate previously uncultured or underrepresented freshwater bacterial groups, thus expanding the basis for future multi-omic studies. Expand
Diversity of urea-degrading microorganisms in open-ocean and estuarine planktonic communities.
TLDR
A great diversity of ureolytic organisms was revealed because primers were able to amplify many previously unknown, environmentally relevant urease genes, and they will support new approaches for exploring the role of urea in marine ecosystems. Expand
Comparison of the diversity of cultured and total bacterial communities in marine sediment using culture-dependent and sequencing methods
TLDR
To optimize media for culturing marine microbes, microbial communities in three sediment samples were described using high-throughput sequencing (HTS) and culture-dependent techniques and revealed communities dominated by Gammaproteobacteria. Expand

Cultivation of the ubiquitous SAR11 marine bacterioplankton clade
TLDR
The isolation of representatives of the SAR11 clade is reported, which indicates that diverse uncultivated microbial taxa dominate most natural ecosystems, which has prompted widespread efforts to elucidate the geochemical activities of these organisms without the benefit of cultures for study. Expand
Culturability and In Situ Abundance of Pelagic Bacteria from the North Sea
TLDR
The culturability of abundant members of the domain bacteria in North Sea bacterioplankton was investigated by a combination of various cultivation strategies and cultivation-independent 16S rRNA-based techniques and predicted a limit to the isolation of unculturable marine bacteria, particularly the gamma-proteobacterial SAR86 cluster.

Isolation of Novel Pelagic Bacteria from the German Bight and Their Seasonal Contributions to Surface Picoplankton
ABSTRACT We tested new strategies for the isolation of abundant bacteria from coastal North Sea surface waters, which included reducing by several orders of magnitude the concentrations of inorganicExpand
Sphingomonas alaskensis Strain AFO1, an Abundant Oligotrophic Ultramicrobacterium from the North Pacific
TLDR
The isolation of this species over an extended period, its high abundance at the time of sampling, and its geographical distribution indicate that it has the capacity to proliferate in ocean waters and is therefore likely to be an important contributor in terms of biomass and nutrient cycling in marine environments. Expand
Isolation of Typical Marine Bacteria by Dilution Culture: Growth, Maintenance, and Characteristics of Isolates under Laboratory Conditions
TLDR
It was concluded that the cells in these 15 dilution cultures had adapted to growth under laboratory conditions after several months of nutrient deprivation prior to isolation and were potentially a very important part of picoplankton biomass in the areas investigated. Expand
Isolation and characterisation of the marine ultramicrobacterium Sphingomonas sp. strain RB2256
TLDR
Application of the dilution culture technique to the field of subsurface microbiology could be adopted to study the occurrence of UMB in groundwater with a comparable and stable ‘low-nutrient-conditioned’ phenotype. Expand
Fulvimarina pelagi gen. nov., sp. nov., a marine bacterium that forms a deep evolutionary lineage of descent in the order "Rhizobiales".
TLDR
Three brownish-yellow bacterial strains were isolated from the western Sargasso Sea by high-throughput culturing methods and characterized by polyphasic approaches and indicated that they formed a distinct and deep evolutionary lineage of descent, together with A. coralicida, within the order "Rhizobiales" of the alpha-Proteobacteria.

TLDR
It is hypothesized that the marine Roseobacter lineage plays a role in cycling organic sulfur compounds produced within the bloom, based on data and previous physiological studies of cultured Roseobacteria strains. Expand
Sphingomonas alaskensis sp. nov., a dominant bacterium from a marine oligotrophic environment.
TLDR
Seven Gram-negative strains, isolated in 1990 from a 10(6)-fold dilution series of seawater from Resurrection Bay, a deep fjord of the Gulf of Alaska, were identified in a polyphasic taxonomic study and the ability to differentiate the species justifies the proposal of a new species name, Sphingomonas alaskensis sp.

TLDR
It is proposed from the polyphasic studies that strain HTCC2559T (=ATCC BAA-628T = KCTC 12090T) belongs to a new genus and species named Croceibacter atlanticus gen. nov., sp.nov. Expand
