Ecological studies indicate that aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria (AAP) that use bacteriochlorophyll to support phototrophic electron transport are widely distributed in the oceans. All cultivated marine AAP are alpha-3 and alpha-4 Proteobacteria, but metagenomic evidence indicates that uncultured AAP Gammaproteobacteria are important members of ocean surface microbial communities. Here we report the description of obligately oligotrophic, marine Gammaproteobacteria that have genes for… Expand
Diverse Arrangement of Photosynthetic Gene Clusters in Aerobic Anoxygenic Phototrophic Bacteria
TLDR
Light is shed on the evolution and functional implications in PGCs of marine aerobic anoxygenic phototrophs, and the notion that AAP are a heterogenous physiological group phylogenetically scattered among Proteobacteria is supported. Expand
Diversity of cultivated and metabolically active aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria along an oligotrophic gradient in the Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
This is the first study to document extensively the diversity of AAP isolates and to unveil the active AAP community in an oligotrophic marine environment and highlights the existing gaps in the understanding of the AAP bacteria ecology, especially in the Mediterranean Sea and likely globally. Expand
Evolutionary Divergence of Marine Aerobic Anoxygenic Phototrophic Bacteria as Seen from Diverse Organisations of Their Photosynthesis Gene Clusters
TLDR
Interestingly, members of the Eryth–Citro clade possess the shortest and simplest PGC structure of the known AAPB, and the light-harvesting complex 2 genes are completely absent; perhaps this indicates that the AAPB in this clade arose more recently than their counterparts in other clades. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that horizontal gene transfer of pufLM genes within the PSB is highly unlikely, in contrast to the situation in other groups of anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria belonging to Alpha- and Betaproteobacteria. Expand
High-throughput single-cell sequencing identifies photoheterotrophs and chemoautotrophs in freshwater bacterioplankton
TLDR
The power of single-cell DNA sequencing is demonstrated addressing previously unresolved questions about the metabolic potential and evolutionary histories of uncultured microorganisms, which dominate most natural environments. Expand
A Comparison of 14 Erythrobacter Genomes Provides Insights into the Genomic Divergence and Scattered Distribution of Phototrophs
TLDR
The findings suggest the ongoing evolutionary divergence of Erythrobacter genomes and the scattered distribution characteristic of PGC. Expand
Abundance and Genetic Diversity of Aerobic Anoxygenic Phototrophic Bacteria of Coastal Regions of the Pacific Ocean
TLDR
It is demonstrated that environmental variables regulate both the abundance and diversity of AAP bacteria but that endemism may also be a contributing factor in structuring these communities. Expand
Abundance and diversity of aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria in saline lakes on the Tibetan plateau.
TLDR
Salinity and pH were found to be potential factors controlling the AAP bacterial diversity and community composition and have implications for a better understanding of the potential role of AAP bacteria in carbon cycling in inland lake ecosystems. Expand
Diversity and Distribution of Ecotypes of the Aerobic Anoxygenic Phototrophy Gene pufM in the Delaware Estuary
TLDR
The data suggest that different groups of AAP bacteria are controlled by different environmental factors, which may explain current difficulties in predicting the distribution of total AAP bacteria in aquatic environments. Expand
The Photosynthetic Apparatus and Its Regulation in the Aerobic Gammaproteobacterium Congregibacter litoralis gen. nov., sp. nov
TLDR
In a hypothetical model that explains the regulation of the photosynthetic apparatus in strain KT71T, it is proposed that the expression of photosynthesis genes depends on the cellular redox state and is maximal under conditions that allow a balanced membraneRedox state. Expand

This cultivation study revealed that sporadically detected Gammaproteobacteria gene clones from seawater are part of a phylogenetically diverse constellation of organisms mainly composed of oligotrophic and ultramicrobial lineages that are culturable under specific cultivation conditions. Expand
Cultivation of the ubiquitous SAR11 marine bacterioplankton clade
TLDR
The isolation of representatives of the SAR11 clade is reported, which indicates that diverse uncultivated microbial taxa dominate most natural ecosystems, which has prompted widespread efforts to elucidate the geochemical activities of these organisms without the benefit of cultures for study.

Comparisons of PR-bearing genomic fragments recovered directly from planktonic bacteria inhabiting the California coast, the central Pacific Ocean, and waters offshore the Antarctica Peninsula indicate that PR genes are distributed among a variety of divergent marine bacterial taxa, including both α- and γ-proteobacteria.
