Substantial ambiguity exists regarding the phylogenetic status of facultatively psychrophilic luminous bacteria identified as Photobacterium phosphoreum, a species thought to be widely distributed in the world's oceans and believed to be the specific bioluminescent light-organ symbiont of several deep-sea fishes. Members of the P. phosphoreum species group include luminous and non-luminous strains identified phenotypically from a variety of different habitats as well as phylogenetically defined… Expand
Phylogeny, genomics, and symbiosis of Photobacterium.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis demonstrates a robust separation between Photobacterium and its close relatives, Aliivibrio and Vibrio, and reveals the presence of two well-supported clades. Expand
The uncultured luminous symbiont of Anomalops katoptron (Beryciformes: Anomalopidae) represents a new bacterial genus.
TLDR
Results suggest that expression of the luminescence system might be continuous in P. katoptron and propose the candidate name Candidatus Photodesmus (Greek: photo = light, desmus = servant) kat optron for the species of bacteria symbiotic with A. kAToptron. Expand
Revisiting the genus Photobacterium: taxonomy, ecology and pathogenesis.
The genus Photobacterium, one of the eight genera included in the family Vibrionaceae, contains 27 species with valid names and it has received attention because of the bioluminescence andExpand
Phylogenetic Diversity and Cosymbiosis in the Bioluminescent Symbioses of “Photobacterium mandapamensis”
TLDR
The results, which are the first report of bacterial cosymbiosis in fish light organs and the first demonstration that P. leiognathi is not the exclusive light organ symbiont ofLeiognathid fishes, demonstrate that the host species ranges of P. mandapamensis and P.LeIognathi are substantially distinct. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of host–symbiont specificity and codivergence in bioluminescent symbioses
TLDR
In several associations, bacterial species identities contradicted strict host family bacterial species specificity and the hypothesis of codivergence in bioluminescent symbioses was refuted. Expand
Photobacterium kishitanii sp. nov., a luminous marine bacterium symbiotic with deep-sea fishes.
TLDR
Six representatives of a luminous bacterium commonly found in association with deep, cold-dwelling marine fishes were isolated from the light organs and skin of different fish species and resolved the six strains as members of the genus Photobacterium and as a clade distinct from other species of Photobacteria. Expand
Photobacterium toruni sp. nov., a bacterium isolated from diseased farmed fish.
TLDR
The results obtained demonstrate that the three strains isolated from liver and spleen of diseased farmed redbanded seabream represent a novel species, for which the name Photobacterium toruni sp. Expand
Evidence of bacterial bioluminescence in a Philippine squid and octopus hosts.
TLDR
Most remarkably, this is the first report on the evidence of bacterial luminescence in an octopus, an organism whose bioluminescent counterparts are typically known to emit light only through surface photophores. Expand
Photobacterium aphoticum sp. nov., isolated from coastal water.
TLDR
A facultatively anaerobic marine gammaproteobacterium, designated strain M46(T), was isolated from Mediterranean seawater at Malvarrosa beach, Valencia, Spain by using a polyphasic approach and was found to be situated within the genus Photobacteria in the family Vibrionaceae. Expand
Historical microbiology: revival and phylogenetic analysis of the luminous bacterial cultures of M. W. Beijerinck.
TLDR
Strains of the beijerinckii clade exhibited little sequence variation for the seven genes and approximately 6300 nucleotides examined despite the geographic distances and the more than 80 years separating their isolation, indicating a global distribution for this new clade. Expand

Genomic and Phylogenetic Characterization of Luminous Bacteria Symbiotic with the Deep-Sea Fish Chlorophthalmus albatrossis (Aulopiformes: Chlorophthalmidae)

  • 2005
TLDR
Luminous bacteria symbiotic with C. albatrossis, together with certain other strains of luminous bacteria, form a clade that is related to but evolutionarily distinct from P. phosphoreum, and may constitute the major or sole bioluminescent symbiont of several families of deep-sea luminous fishes. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of the lux operon distinguishes two evolutionarily distinct clades of Photobacterium leiognathi
TLDR
It is demonstrated that P. leiognathi contains two evolutionarily and phenotypically distinct clades, P. mandapamensis and P. gyrB, which are based on a high degree of phenotypic and genetic similarity and which are distinct from each other. Expand
Specificity of symbiosis between deep-sea fishes and psychrotrophic luminous bacteria
TLDR
The differences in luminous bacterial symbionts, the distant phylogenetic relationships, and the marked differences in the structure and location of the luminescent organ among these four fish families suggest an independent and multiple origin of each of these bacteria-fish associations. Expand
Genomic polymorphism in symbiotic populations of Photobacterium leiognathi.
TLDR
Photobacterium leiognathi/leiognathid fish symbiosis apparently is maintained at the bacterial species level rather than at the level of individual, genomotypically defined strain types. Expand
Population genetics and phylogenetic inference in bacterial molecular systematics: the roles of migration and recombination in Bradyrhizobium species cohesion and delineation.
A combination of population genetics and phylogenetic inference methods was used to delineate Bradyrhizobium species and to uncover the evolutionary forces acting at the population-species interfaceExpand
Study of genetic relationships among marine species of the genera Beneckea and Photobacterium by means of in vitro DNA/DNA hybridization
TLDR
Strains representative of species of the marine genera Beneckea and Photobacterium were used as reference standards in in vitro DNA/DNA competition experiments and suggested that V. albensis should be synonymized with V. cholerae, while the latter two organisms should remain distinct from this species. Expand
Taxonomy of the marine, luminous bacteria
TLDR
Four species of luminous, marine bacteria isolated from sea water, surfaces and intestines of fish, as well as from the luminous organs of fish and squid were submitted to an extensive phenotypic characterization, supported by differences in the properties of the Luminous system. Expand
Use of recA as an alternative phylogenetic marker in the family Vibrionaceae.
TLDR
The recA sequences suggest that the genus Vibrio is polyphyletic, and the high heterogeneity observed within vibrios was congruent with former polyphasic taxonomic studies on this group. Expand

TLDR
This article summarizes what is currently known about relationships between light organ symbionts and their hosts, including characteristics of light organ environments, physiology of light organs Symbiotic luminous bacteria housed in elaborate light organs, and the evolution of lightorgan symbiont and their associations.
