The newly established genus Pseudoalteromonas contains numerous marine species which synthesize biologically active molecules. The production of a range of compounds which are active against a variety of target organisms appears to be a unique characteristic for this genus and may greatly benefit Pseudoalteromonas cells in their competition for nutrients and colonization of surfaces. Species of Pseudoalteromonas are generally found in association with marine eukaryotes and display anti… CONTINUE READING
