We studied the effects of predation on the cytometric and phylogenetic features of two enriched bacterial communities obtained from two cultures of marine heterotrophic nanoflagellates: Jakoba libera and a mixed culture of Cafeteria sp. and Monosiga sp. Protists were harvested by flow cytometric cell sorting and eight different treatments were prepared. Each bacterial community was incubated with and without protists, and we added two treatments with protists and the bacteria present after the… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Compositional responses of bacterial communities to redox gradients and grazing in the anoxic Cariaco Basin
TLDR
Results demonstrated that redox gradients structured microbial communities and that predator exclusion significantly altered bacterial abundances and community composition. Expand
Effect of top-down control on cell-specific activity and diversity of active marine bacterioplankton
TLDR
Both the presence and type of mortality process play a key role in structuring a bacterial community, and this effect varies in ecosystems of differing trophic state. Expand
Effect of carbon addition and predation on acetate-assimilating bacterial cells in groundwater.
TLDR
Stable isotope probing with uniformly labeled acetate was used to identify metabolically active and inactive bacterial populations based on their ability to assimilate acetate and/or its metabolites and revealed a bacterial community dominated by Proteobacteria, Firmicutes, and Bacteroidetes. Expand
Community heterogeneity and single-cell digestive activity of estuarine heterotrophic nanoflagellates assessed using lysotracker and flow cytometry.
TLDR
The results show that different populations that develop in estuarine regrowth cultures are characterized by different intrinsic ranges of size and of feeding activity, and that there is a wide range of single-cell responses within these HNF populations. Expand
Protistan Grazing on Marine Bacterioplankton
TLDR
The missing bacterial grazers were found when the smallest planktonic unpigmented protists, heterotrophic nanoflagellates, were studied not only in terms of taxonomy of isolated forms, as has been done by dedicated protozoologists for a long time, but by microbial ecologists with an ecological perspective. Expand
In situ prey selection of mixotrophic and heterotrophic flagellates in Antarctic oligotrophic lakes: an analysis of the digestive vacuole content
TLDR
Some general trends to selectivity over some HPP were found, and similar prey prefer-ences were observed in all bacterivorous flagellates. Expand
Identification of Ciliate Grazers of Autotrophic Bacteria in Ammonia-Oxidizing Activated Sludge by RNA Stable Isotope Probing
TLDR
RNA-SIP analysis revealed that the peritrich ciliate Epistylis galea dominated the acquisition of carbon from bacteria with access to CO2 under ammonia-oxidizing conditions, while there was no evidence of specific grazing on acetate consumers under denitrifying conditions. Expand
Microbial communities of recirculating aquaculture facilities: interaction between heterotrophic and autotrophic bacteria and the system itself
TLDR
Investigating the heterotrophic bacterial communities of a marine recirculating aquaculture system aimed at investigating the dynamic nature of the prokaryotic populations, the relative abundance of pathogens versus probionts and the interaction betweenheterotrophic and nitrifying bacteria. Expand
Mixotrophic Phytoflagellate Bacterivory Field Measurements Strongly Biased by Standard Approaches: A Case Study
TLDR
Overall, this case study indicates that applying the two commonly used premises can introduce significant biases and considerably alter the perception of mixotrophy in a given system. Expand
Grazing impact of different heterotrophic nanoflagellates on eukaryotic (Ostreococcus tauri) and prokaryotic picoautotrophs (Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus).
TLDR
Overall, this study shows that the nanoflagellate community composition is conclusive for pICOautotrophic community structure and, vice versa, the picoautotroph community structure favours or inhibits the growth of some nan oflageLLate groups. Expand

Predator-Specific Enrichment of Actinobacteria from a Cosmopolitan Freshwater Clade in Mixed Continuous Culture
TLDR
The community structure of pelagic microbial assemblages can be influenced by the taxonomic composition of the predator community, albeit to different extents. Expand
Composition and population dynamics of planktonic bacteria and bacterivorous flagellates in seawater chemostat cultures
TLDR
It is revealed that continuous cultivation with unsupplemented seawater altered the bacterial community composition compared to the inoculum, and HNF exerted efficient grazing control on the bacterial communities during 3 wk of cultivation and reduced bacterial biomass to approximately 10% of that in the predator-free chemostats. Expand
Morphological and compositional shifts in an experimental bacterial community influenced by protists with contrasting feeding modes
TLDR
Significant cultivation-dependent shifts of the bacterial community were observed toward (gamma)-Proteobacteria and members of the Cytophaga/Flavobacterium group, which demonstrated the rather poor agreement between cultivation-based approaches and oligonucleotide probing. Expand
Regulation of bacterial biomass and community structure by metazoan and protozoan predation
TLDR
The experiments demonstrated that predation is a major structuring force for planktonic bacterial communities and that changes in predation regime probably have a much stronger impact on the structure of the bacterial community than on bacterial abundance and biomass. Expand
Contrasting bacterial strategies to coexist with a flagellate predator in an experimental microbial assemblage
TLDR
It is concluded that bacteria in mixed assemblages can adopt at least two distinct strategies as a reaction to intense flagellate predation: to outgrow predation pressure or to develop inedible, inactive filaments. Expand
Impact of Protozoan Grazing on Bacterial Community Structure in Soil Microcosms
TLDR
The composition ofprotozoan communities is important for the effect of protozoan grazing on bacterial communities, and size-selective feeding may explain some but not all of the changes in bacterial community structure. Expand
changes in bacterial community structure in seawater mesocosms differing in their nutrient status
TLDR
Although grazing had an effect on the genetic diversity of bacterial communities by eliminating some populations, other species were preserved and it seems that some species such as Alterornonas macleodii may have developed defence strategies to escape predation. Expand
Genetic changes in the bacterial community structure associated with protistan grazers
TLDR
The results show that DGGE analysis can be used to facilitate studies on the effect of protistan grazing on natural bacterial communities, and a large change in the bacterial community structure coinciding with the peak in protist numbers is shown. Expand
Effect of protistan bacterivory on coastal bacterioplankton diversity
TLDR
The results of the experiments show that protists appeared to be capable of controlling bacterioplankton taxonomic diversity under these manipulated conditions, and agree with the hypothesis that aquatic bactenoplankton communiries are composed. Expand
Genetic diversity of 'satellite' bacteria present in cultures of marine diatoms.
TLDR
Algal diversity might be an important factor in explaining the enormous bacterial diversity in marine assemblages, and vice versa, according to the results of a test of hypothesis that algal cells constitute niches for specific bacterial species. Expand
