The morphologies, halotolerances, temperature requirements, pigment compositions and 16S rRNA gene sequences of five culture collection strains and six novel isolates of cyanobacteria with helical, tightly coiled trichomes were investigated. All strains were very similar morphologically and could be assigned to the genus Spirulina (or section Euspirulina sensu Geitler), according to traditional classification. However, the isolates showed significantly different requirements for salinity and… Expand
Polyphasic characterization of benthic, moderately halophilic, moderately thermophilic cyanobacteria with very thin trichomes and the proposal of Halomicronemaexcentricum gen. nov., sp. nov.
TLDR
A new genus of moderately halophilic, moderately halotolerant and moderately thermophilic cyanobacteria with very thin trichomes with closely related and distantly related strains is described and the new species Halomicronema excentricum is proposed. Expand
Phylogenetically distant clade of Nostoc-like taxa with the description of Minunostoc gen. nov. and Minunostoc cylindricum sp. nov
TLDR
The phylogenies based on 16S rRNA and rpoC1 gene sequences indicated that the two cyanobacterial strains isolated from a wet rocky wall in a mid-subtropical region in China grouped into a unique and robust cluster with high bootstrap values, leading to the establishment of Minunostoc gen. nov. Expand
Extending the ecological distribution of Desmonostoc genus: proposal of Desmonostoc salinum sp. nov., a novel Cyanobacteria from a saline-alkaline lake.
TLDR
A filamentous heterocytous strain, Nostocaceae CCM-UFV059, isolated from Laguna Amarga, Chile, was characterized applying the polyphasic approach, extending the ecological coverage of the genus Desmonostoc and contributing to a better understanding of cyanobacterial diversity and systematics. Expand
Comparative characterization of two cyanobacteria strains of the order Spirulinales isolated from the Baltic Sea - polyphasic approach in practice
TLDR
The analysis of photosynthetic pigments indicated that in the cyanobacteria of the order Spirulinales the model of response to changing light regime might be preserved even after a long time of growth in culture. Expand
Genotypic Diversity of Oscillatoriacean Strains Belonging to the Genera Geitlerinema and Spirulina Determined by 16S rDNA Restriction Analysis
TLDR
Two strains of hypersaline origin clustered together and were found to be distant from their counterparts of marine and freshwater habitat, and another cluster, formed by alkali-tolerant strains with tightly coiled trichomes, was well delineated. Expand
Phenotypic and genotypic characterisation of an unique indigenous hypersaline unicellular cyanobacterium, Euhalothece sp.nov.
TLDR
A novel halotolerant species of cyanobacterium of the order Chroococcales was isolated from hypersaline estuary in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa and is considered to represent a novel species of Euhalothece. Expand
Chroakolemma gen. nov. (Leptolyngbyaceae, Cyanobacteria) from soil biocrusts in the semi-desert Central Region of Mexico
TLDR
Two species are proposed that are morphologically similar to Leptolyngbya edaphica, Chamaethrix vaginata and Trichocoleus badius and are phylogenetically distant from Chroakolemma. Expand
Polyphasic characterization of cyanobacteria isolated from desert crusts, and the description of Desertifilum tharense gen. et sp. nov. (Oscillatoriales)
TLDR
Phylogenetic, morphological, ultrastuctural and physiological analyses demonstrated that the investigated strains represented a novel cyanobacterial genus, for which the name Desertifilum tharense gen. et sp. Expand
Preliminary studies of cyanobacteria, picoplankton, and virioplankton in the Salton Sea with special attention to phylogenetic diversity among eight strains of filamentous cyanobacteria
TLDR
Investigation of Cyanobacterial diversity in the Salton Sea suggested considerable cryptic genetic variability among filamentous strains of similar or identical morphology and showed members of the form-genus Geitlerinema to be distributed among three major phylogenetic clades of cyanobacteria. Expand
Spirulina subsalsa var. salina var. nov. : Thermo-Halotolerant Cyanobacteria Accumulating Two Kinds of Compatible Solute, Originated from the Sultanate of Oman
TLDR
Morphological observation of BAH8-10-45 suggests that this strain belongs to the genus Supirulina Turpin ex Gomont and the species of Spirulina, which has been proposed as a genus for cyanobacteria which has halotolerance in range of 3–13 wt/vol % or higher. Expand

The phylogeny of unicellular, extremely halotolerant cyanobacteria
TLDR
This represents the first case in which a phylogenetically coherent group of cyanobacteria can be defined on the basis of physiology, and the Halothece cluster contained two subclusters that may be divergent at the generic level. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships Among Filamentous Helical Cyanobacteria Investigated on the Basis of 16S Ribosomal RNA Gene Sequence Analysis
TLDR
A distance tree based on the 16S rRNA sequences was constructed and shows that the two Arthrospira strains are not closely related to the Spirulina strain but belong to a cluster of strains assigned to the genera Oscillatoria, Lyngbya, and Microcoleus. Expand
Phenotypic and phylogenetic analyses show Microcoleus chthonoplastes to be a cosmopolitan cyanobacterium
TLDR
Comparison with three culture collection strains originally assigned to M. chthonoplastes revealed that strain PCC 7420 belongs to the same tightly delimited group, both phenotypically and in 16S rRNA gene sequence, but that strains SAG 3192 and 10mfx do not. Expand
Carotenoids and mycosporine-like amino acid compounds in members of the genus Microcoleus (Cyanobact
TLDR
This study demonstrates the applicability of the chemotaxonomy with carotenoids and mycosporines in solving problematic questions in low-rank cyanobacterial systematics. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among the Chromatiaceae, their taxonomic reclassification and description of the new genera Allochromatium, Halochromatium, Isochromatium, Marichromatium, Thiococcus, Thiohalocapsa and Thermochromatium.
TLDR
A genetic divergence between Chromatium species originated from freshwater sources and those of truly marine and halophilic nature was revealed and a reclassification is proposed on the basis of 16S rDNA sequence similarity supported by selected phenotypic properties. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of filamentous cyanobacterial taxa inferred from 16S rRNA sequence divergence.
TLDR
The phylogenetic position of the eight genera of Oscillatoriales was investigated based on 165 rRNA gene sequences which have proven to be very useful for the study of bacterial phylogeny. Expand
Phylogeny and molecular fingerprinting of green sulfur bacteria

The sequences of the Chlorobiaceae strains were consistent with the secondary structure model proposed earlier for Chlorobium vibrioforme strain 6030 and indicate a close phylogenetic relatedness among the green sulfur bacteria. Expand

An accurate method for characterization, classification and identification of oxyphotobacterial clone cultures has been developed using the DNA sequence polymorphism in the 16S rRNA regions V6 to V8 for individual strain characterization and identification. Expand

Enrichment culture and microscopy conceal diverse thermophilic Synechococcus populations in a single hot spring microbial mat habitat
TLDR
This work provides evidence that this species is strongly selected for in laboratory culture to the exclusion of many more-predominant cyanobacterial species coexisting in the Octopus Spring mat in Yellowstone National Park, and infer that biodiversity within this community is linked to guild structure.
