Acidocalcisomes conserved from bacteria too many fish dating site
As a positive control, genomic DNAs from frozen sponge tissues and “”-positive clones from 16S ribosomal DNA libraries were used.
The affiliation of the morphologically conspicuous sponge bacterium with the novel phylogenetic lineage was confirmed by fluorescence in situ hybridization with newly designed probes targeting different sites of the poribacterial 16S r RNA.
were collected by scuba diving offshore of Little San Salvador Island, Bahamas (24°34.39′N, 75°58.00′W), at depths of 5 to 15 m in July 2000.
Individual specimens were placed separately into plastic bags and brought to the surface.
So far an estimated 15,000 species have been described, but the true diversity is probably much higher (20).
Particularly the tropical sponges are known for their colorful appearances and their morphological plasticity, encompassing encrusting, rope, ball, and vase shapes ranging in size from a few millimeters to 1 m.
