Genetic and morphological characterization of Rivularia and Calothrix (Nostocales, Cyanobacteria) from running water.

Abstract

In this study, a polyphasic approach was adopted to investigate natural freshwater (river and stream) samples of Rivularia colonies and isolated strains of cyanobacteria with a high degree of trichome tapering (genera Rivularia and Calothrix). Analysis of the phycocyanin (PC) operon and the intervening intergenic spacer (cpcBA-IGS) and 16S rRNA gene… (More)
