Salinity dependence of the distribution of multicellular magnetotactic prokaryotes in a hypersaline lagoon.


Candidatus Magnetoglobus multicellularis is an unusual magnetotactic multicellular microorganism composed of a highly organized assemblage of gram-negative bacterial cells. In this work, the salinity dependence of Ca. M. multicellularis and its abundance in the hypersaline Araruama Lagoon, Brazil were studied. Viability experiments showed that Ca. M… (More)
