Planctomyces maris sp. nov.: a Marine Isolate of the Planctomyces-Blastocaulis Group of Budding Bacteria

  title={Planctomyces maris sp. nov.: a Marine Isolate of the Planctomyces-Blastocaulis Group of Budding Bacteria},
  author={John Bauld and James T. Staley},
SUMMARY: A new marine strain of the Planctomyces-Blastocaulis group of stalked, budding bacteria was isolated: the name Planctomyces maris is proposed. Cells were spherical to ovoid, exhibited longitudinal symmetry and had a single fibrillar appendage located at one pole of mature cells. Reproduction occurred by budding at the opposite pole of the cell. The resulting daughter cell was motile by a single subpolar flagellum. The organism was an obligately aerobic, mesophilic heterotroph which…

Planctomicrobium piriforme gen. nov., sp. nov., a stalked planctomycete from a littoral wetland of a boreal lake.

An aerobic, budding, non-pigmented and rosette-forming bacterium isolated from a littoral wetland of a boreal lake located in Valaam Island, northern Russia, and designated strain P3(T) was a mildly acidophilic, mesophilic organism capable of growth at pH values between pH 4.2 and 7.1 and at temperatures between 10 and 30 °C.

Zavarzinella formosa gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel stalked, Gemmata-like planctomycete from a Siberian peat bog.

The unique cell morphology, the capability of growth in acidic conditions and a number of chemotaxonomic and genotypic characteristics served to differentiate strain A10(T) from G. obscuriglobus, a novel genus and species of planctomycetes.

Phycisphaera mikurensis gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from a marine alga, and proposal of Phycisphaeraceae fam. nov., Phycisphaerales ord. nov. and Phycisphaerae classis nov. in the phylum Planctomycetes.

Three strains isolated from a marine alga collected on Mikura Island, Japan, are proposed to be placed in a novel genus and species named Phycisphaera mikurensis gen. nov. in the phylum Planctomycetes.

Life cycle of a budding and appendaged bacterium belonging to morphotype IV of theBlastocaulis-Planctomyces group

Transmission electron microscopy was employed to determine ultrastructural details regarding the single ensheathed flagellum, the polarly distributed crateriform structures and numerous pili, the excreted holdfast, the multifibrillar major appendage (a fascicle), and daughter cell (bud) formation.

Alienimonas californiensis gen. nov. sp. nov., a novel Planctomycete isolated from the kelp forest in Monterey Bay

The isolation and genomic and physiological characterisation of strain CA12T obtained from giant bladder kelp in Monterey Bay, California, USA are described and it is suggested that the isolated strain represents a novel species within a novel genus.

Complete genome sequence of Planctomyces brasiliensis type strain (DSM 5305), phylogenomic analysis and reclassification of Planctomycetes including the descriptions of Gimesia gen. nov., Planctopirus gen. nov. and Rubinisphaera gen. nov. and emended descriptions of the order Planctomycetales and th

A quantitative comparison of phylogenetic and phenotypic aspects indicates that the three Planctomyces species with type strains available in public culture collections should be placed in separate genera, and the genera Gimesia, Planctopirus and Rubinisphaera are proposed to accommodate P. maris, P. limnophilus and P. brasiliensis.

Isolation and ultrastructure of freshwater strains ofPlanctomyces

Four strains of a freshwaterPlanctomyces species—different in a number of respects from those hitherto described—have been isolated and their morphology and ultrastructure examined by transmission



Two Identical Genera of Budding and Stalked Bacteria: Planctomyces Gimesi 1924 and Blastocaulis Henrici and Johnson 1935

A comparison of the characteristics of the organisms considers Blastocaulis spaerica Henrici and Johnson 1935 and Planctomyces bekefii Gimesi 1924 to be identical, which means that both organisms occur in the same habitat and at the same time.

Biology of budding bacteria

A study of the distribution of genera demonstrated their ubiquitous presence; most representatives tolerated in their habitats various degrees of salinity or concentrations of organic nutrients, different depths, and the climate of various geographical locations.

Prosthecomicrobium and Ancalomicrobium: New Prosthecate Freshwater Bacteria

The term prostheca is proposed for the rigid appendages of procaryotic cells bounded by the cell wall, and is defined to include the structures on these new bacteria, as well as the stalks of the caulobacters and thehyphae of the hyphomicrobia.

Biology of Budding Bacteria III. Fine Structure of Rhodomicrobium and Hyphomicrobium spp

The ultrastructure of 14 strains of hyphomicrobia, and of Rhodomicrobium vannielii, was investigated by means of electron microscopy of thin sections and the majority of the strains possessed a well-developed internal membrane system, which appeared to be derived by invagination from the cytoplasmic membrane.

Budding bacteria of the Pasteuria-Blastobacter group.

Two strains of ovoid budding bacteria have been isolated from peptone enrichment cultures from a creek and lake and attach to organisms and inanimate substrata by holdfast st...

Temperature-gradient incubator for the growth of clostridia.

A temperature-gradient incubator was constructed and used for the growth of Clostridia and the minimum, optimum, and maximum temperatures can be obtained for 12 organisms at one time.

The stain reported here differs from previous alkaline lead stains in that the chelating agent, citrate, is in sufficient excess to sequester all lead present, and is less likely to contaminate sections.
