We carried out a 16S rDNA-based molecular survey of the prokaryotic diversity associated with the chitin tubes of the giant vent tubeworm Riftia pachyptila (collected at the East Pacific Rise, 9 degrees N and 13 degrees N). Scanning electron microscopy showed dense microbial populations, particularly on the external surface of the middle and upper tube regions, which included very diverse prokaryotic morphotypes. We used archaeal- and bacterial-specific primers for polymerase chain reaction… Expand
Bacterial diversity in hydrothermal sediment and epsilonproteobacterial dominance in experimental microcolonizers at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
TLDR
A molecular survey based on 16S rRNA genes of the bacterial diversity found in two deep-sea vent niches at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge shows that microcolonizers were almost exclusively colonized by epsilonproteobacteria, although these exhibited considerable morphological and phylogenetic in-group diversity.

Microbial diversity of a sulphide spire located in the Edmond deep-sea hydrothermal vent field on the Central Indian Ridge
A culture-independent molecular phylogenetic survey was carried out for a bacterial and archaeal community of a mineralized crust coating a sulphide spire, which was collected from the Edmond ventExpand
Evidence of Chemolithoautotrophy in the Bacterial Community Associated with Alvinella pompejana, a Hydrothermal Vent Polychaete
TLDR
The results suggest that members of both the episymbiont and the surrounding free-living communities display a chemolithoautotrophic form of growth and therefore contribute fixed carbon to other organisms in the vent community. Expand
Phylogenetic Diversity and Axial Distribution of Microbes in the Intestinal Tract of the Polychaete Neanthes glandicincta
TLDR
A difference in microbial community structure along the gut of N. glandicincta is revealed, which might indicate an environmental gradient from anterior to posterior sections affecting the structure of the microbial community. Expand
Microbial diversity associated with a Paralvinella sulfincola tube and the adjacent substratum on an active deep-sea vent chimney
TLDR
The results suggest the presence of mostly mesophilic and low oxygen conditions on the chimney surface, which is in accordance with descriptions of P. sulfincola’s habitat conditions. Expand
Characterization of bacterial community structure in vestimentiferan tubeworm Ridgeia piscesae trophosomes
TLDR
This study strongly suggests that there are multiple phylotypes of bacteria within the trophosome of the vestimentiferan tubeworm Ridgeia piscesae in addition to the known endosymbiont. Expand
Molecular characterization of bacteria associated with the trophosome and the tube of Lamellibrachia sp., a siboglinid annelid from cold seeps in the eastern Mediterranean.
TLDR
The phylogeny and function of intracellular bacterial symbionts inhabiting the trophosome of specimens of Lamellibrachia sp. Expand
Phylogenetic characterization of the bacterial assemblage associated with mucous secretions of the hydrothermal vent polychaete Paralvinella palmiformis.
TLDR
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of the presence of Verrucomicrobia, Fusobacteria and green non-sulfur bacteria on hydrothermal edifices. Expand
Epibiotic bacterial community of Sphaeroma serratum Crustacea, Isopoda relationship with molt status
TLDR
The comparison of DGGE band patterns of several individuals from female, pubescent male and senescent male groups revealed that the bacterial community diversity was dependent on the sex and the age of the individuals and more generally on the molt status. Expand
Epibiotic association between filamentous bacteria and the vent-associated galatheid crab, Shinkaia crosnieri (Decapoda: Anomura)
TLDR
The evidences suggest the epibiotic association between S. crosnieri and the filamentous bacteria attached to the ventral setae of the crab, but the details of role and function are still unclear at the present study. Expand

Novel Bacterial and Archaeal Lineages from an In Situ Growth Chamber Deployed at a Mid-Atlantic Ridge Hydrothermal Vent
TLDR
The phylogenetic diversity was determined for a microbial community obtained from an in situ growth chamber placed on a deep-sea hydrothermal vent on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the prevalence of clones related to thermophilic microbes that use hydrogen as an electron donor and sulfur compounds indicates the importance of hydrogen oxidation and sulfur metabolism at deep- sea hydroThermal vents.

TLDR
The similarity between phylotypes identified from Atlantic and Pacific deep-sea hydrothermal vent sites indicates that this new clade of Proteobacteria may be endemic to and widely distributed among deep- Sea Hydrothermal vents. Expand
