  author={Hyun-Hee Cho and Eun Jung Shim and Jin-Sook Park},
The bacterial community structure of two marine sponges, Spirastrella abata and Cinachyrella sp. collected from Jeju Island, in April 2009, was analyzed by 16S rDNA-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE). DGGE banding patterns indicated 8 and 7 bands for Spirastrella abata and Cinachyrella sp., respectively. Comparative sequence analysis of variable DGGE bands revealed from 92% to 100% similarity to the known published sequences. The bacterial groups associated with Spirastrella abata…

Phylogenetic diversity of bacterial community associated with the tropical marine sponges, Cinachyrella sp. and Plakortis sp.

The bacterial community structures of two marine sponges collected from Chuuk in the South Pacific in February 2012 were analyzed by PCR-DGGE (Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis) fingerprinting and revealed 85-100% similarities to known bacterial species in the public database.

A Comparison of Bacterial Diversity Associated with the Sponge Spirastrella abata Depending on RFLP and DGGE

Overall bacterial community in the sponge differed depending on the analysis methods, including RFLP and DGGE, which revealed that bacterial community consisted of four phyla, including Proteobacteria (Alphaproteobacteria), Actinobacteria, Spirochetes, and Chloroflexi.

Bacterial Community Diversity Associated with Two Marine Sponges from the South Pacific Ocean based on 16S rDNA-DGGE analysis

The phylogenetic analysis showed that the bacterial community associated with Hyrtios sp.

Phylogenetic Diversity of Bacterial Community Inhabited in Callyspongia elegans

The aim of this study was to investigate the bacterial community inhabited in Callyspongia elegans and it is strongly suggested that fifteen isolates are candidates for a new genera or species, based on the analyses of 16S rDNA gene sequences.

The Distribution and Antibacterial Activity of Marine Sponge-Associated Bacteria in the Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara, Turkey

The distribution and antibacterial activities of bacteria isolated from fifty-five marine sponge samples collected from the Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara were investigated and provided data for further studies on marine-derived antimicrobial agents, including the effects of environmental differences.

Identification of bat trypanosomes from Minas Gerais state, Brazil, based on 18S rDNA and Cathepsin-L-like targets

The results revealed that the diversity of trypanosome species in a region considered endemic for Chagas disease is greater than previous descriptions, and can confirm the necessity of using DNA sequencing approaches in order to determinatetrypanosomes species isolated from bats.



Community Structure of Bacteria Associated with Two Marine Sponges from Jeju Island Based on 16S rDNA-DGGE Profiles

DGGE analysis indicated predominant communities of the sponge-associated bacteria differ in the two sponges from the same geographical location, and revealed that bacterial community profiles of the spongees were host species-specific.

Bacterial Community Analyses of Two Red Sea Sponges

This study is the first culture-based and culture-independent investigation of the total bacterial assemblages associated with two Red Sea Demosponges, Hyrtios erectus and Amphimedon sp, and provides an excellent resource of several candidate bacteria for production of novel pharmaceutically important compounds.

Culturable Bacterial Symbionts Isolated from Two Distinct Sponge Species (Pseudoceratina clavata and Rhabdastrella globostellata) from the Great Barrier Reef Display Similar Phylogenetic Diversity

The bacterial community structures represented in both sponges were found to be similar at the phylum level by the same four phyla in this study and also at a finer scale at the species level in both Firmicutes and Alphaproteobacteria.

Cultivable Bacterial Community from South China Sea Sponge as Revealed by DGGE Fingerprinting and 16S rDNA Phylogenetic Analysis

By the strategy of mixed cultivation integrated with microbial community DNA-based DGGE fingerprinting and phylogenetic analysis, the cultivable bacterial community of sponge could be revealed effectively.

Abundance and Bioactivity of Cultured Sponge-Associated Bacteria from the Mediterranean Sea

One single alphaproteobacterium, which was related to Pseudovibrio denitrificans, was shown to dominate the cultured community of at least six of the sponges and is probably evolutionary young and facultative and possibly involves biologically active secondary metabolites.

A comparative study on the phylogenetic diversity of culturable actinobacteria isolated from five marine sponge species

Sponge species have been demonstrated here to vary as sources of culturable actinobacterial diversity, and the methods for sampling such diversity presented may be useful for improved sampling of such diversity.

Diversity of Bacteria in the Marine Sponge Aplysina fulva in Brazilian Coastal Waters

ABSTRACT Microorganisms can account for up to 60% of the fresh weight of marine sponges. Marine sponges have been hypothesized to serve as accumulation spots of particular microbial communities, but

Linking abundance and diversity of sponge-associated microbial communities to metabolic differences in host sponges

Sequence analysis of the microbial communities showed a diversity of metabolic capabilities among the microbes of the lowδ15N group, which are lacking in the high δ15 N group, further supporting metabolic differences between the two groups.

Spatial distribution of sponge-associated bacteria in the Mediterranean sponge Tethya aurantium.

The local distribution of the bacterial community associated with the marine sponge Tethya aurantium Pallas 1766 was studied and a new monophyletic cluster of sponge-derived 16S rRNA gene sequences related to the Betaproteobacteria was identified using analysis of 16S sRNA gene clone libraries.
