Hyphomonas strain VP-6 is a prosthecate bacterium isolated from the Guayamas vent region and is a member of a genus of primary and common colonizers of marine surfaces. It adheres to solid substrata as a first step in biofilm formation. Fine-structure microscopy and the use of specific stains and lectins reveal that it synthesizes two different extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). One is a temporally synthesized, polar holdfast EPS, and the other is a capsular EPS that is present during… CONTINUE READING
