Filamentous Infestations Observed on Eggs and Larvae of Cultured Crustaceans1
A variety of filamentous microorganisms infesting eggs, larvae, and postlarval crustacea are described. The mode of action of some of these microorganisms are considered, and the consequences of
Bakterien und Cyanophyceen. Übereinstimmungen und Unterschiede
The result of a renewed survey of the characters of Cyanophyceae and Bacteria is again that, as Procaryonts, they have certain features in common which, however, do not support the idea of natural relationship.
Gliding microbes: some taxonomic reconsiderations
Certain microbes capable of bending and gliding on solid substrata, but neither forming flagella nor endospores, show affinities with blue-green algae despite their lack of photosynthetic pigments.
Der Polymorphismus von Lyngbya kuetzingii
Lyngbya kuetzingii is a strictly photoautotrophic member of the Cyanophyceae to which very small concentrations of organic nutrients are deleterious.
Electron microscope studies on Leucothrix mucor
Electron microscopic studies of thin sections of filaments, knots, resettes, gonidia, and gonidial-forming filaments of Leucothrix mucor were carried out, finding that the cell membrane contains many invaginations, both along the outer wall and along the transverse septa.
Observations on the biology ofThiothrix
Fine structure analysis revealed that the organism was a gram negative bacterium and numerous sulfur granules were bound by a unit membrane extending from the cytoplasmic membrane.
Several interesting organisms present in activated sludge
The authors’ experience was that sludge bulking develops during mass occurence of the genera Leucothrix, Lineola, Spirulina, Achronema and other filamentous species.
Zur Kenntnis von Leucothrix, einer Gattung farbloser Cyanophyceen
The taxonomic position of Leucothrix as related to the Cyanophyceae is established by the production of hormogonia with gliding motility, the structure of the trichomes, and the occurrence of necridia.
Phylogenetic relationships of filamentous sulfur bacteria (Thiothrix spp. and Eikelboom type 021N bacteria) isolated from wastewater-treatment plants and description of Thiothrix eikelboomii sp. nov., Thiothrix unzii sp. nov., Thiothrix fructosivorans sp. nov. and Thiothrix defluvii sp. nov.
Comparative 16S rRNA sequence analysis supports monophyly of the Thiothrix/type 021N group, and phenotypic differences between the Thuothrix spp.
