In order to investigate the relationship between host and symbiosis in the luminous marine fish, Physiculus japonicus, the bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS) of symbiotic luminous bacteria were compared serologically and electrophoretically. Five symbiotic luminous bacteria (PJ strains) were separately isolated from five individuals of this fish species caught at three points, off the coasts of Chiba, Nakaminato, and Oharai. LPS preparations were made from these bacteria by Westphal's phenol…

Relationship between Luminous Fish and Symbiosis
TLDR
It is shown that the luminous marine fish, Physiculus japonicus, was symbiotically associated with at least three serotypes of the species P. phosphoreum in its symbiotic relationship as host, and grouping by serological analysis of the LPSs agreed with that by chemical analysis.
