Genetically divergent Symbiodinium sp. display distinct molecular responses to pathogenic Vibrio and thermal stress.

Briana Hauff, James M Cervino, Joshua A Haslun, Nancy Krucher, Andrew M Wier, Alexandra L Mannix, Konrad Hughen, Kevin B Strychar,

Global climate change and anthropogenic activities are threatening the future survival of coral reef ecosystems. The ability of reef-building zooxanthellate coral to survive these stressors may be determined through fundamental differences within their symbiotic dinoflagellates (Symbiodinium sp.). We define the in vitro apoptotic response of 2 evolutionarily distant Symbiodinium sp., ... Read more >>

Ulcerated yellow spot syndrome: implications of aquaculture-related pathogens associated with soft coral Sarcophyton ehrenbergi tissue lesions.

James M Cervino, Briana Hauff, Joshua A Haslun, Kathryn Winiarski-Cervino, Michael Cavazos, Pamela Lawther, Andrew M Wier, Konrad Hughen, Kevin B Strychar,

We introduce a new marine syndrome called ulcerated yellow spot, affecting the soft coral Sarcophyton ehrenbergi. To identify bacteria associated with tissue lesions, tissue and mucus samples were taken during a 2009 Indo-Pacific research expedition near the Wakatobi Island chain, Indonesia. Polymerase chain reaction targeting the 16S rDNA gene indicated ... Read more >>

Spirochete attachment ultrastructure: Implications for the origin and evolution of cilia.

Andrew M Wier, Luciano Sacchi, Michael F Dolan, Claudio Bandi, James Macallister, Lynn Margulis,

The fine structure of spirochete attachments to the plasma membrane of anaerobic protists displays variations here interpreted as legacies of an evolutionary sequence analogous to that from free-living spirochetes to undulipodia (eukaryotic "flagella" and homologous structures). Attached spirochetes form a vestment, a wriggling fringe of motile cells at the edge ... Read more >>

Transcriptional patterns in both host and bacterium underlie a daily rhythm of anatomical and metabolic change in a beneficial symbiosis.

Andrew M Wier, Spencer V Nyholm, Mark J Mandel, R Prisca Massengo-Tiassé, Amy L Schaefer, Irina Koroleva, Sandra Splinter-Bondurant, Bartley Brown, Liliana Manzella, Einat Snir, Hakeem Almabrazi, Todd E Scheetz, Maria de Fatima Bonaldo, Thomas L Casavant, M Bento Soares, John E Cronan, Jennifer L Reed, Edward G Ruby, Margaret J McFall-Ngai,

Mechanisms for controlling symbiont populations are critical for maintaining the associations that exist between a host and its microbial partners. We describe here the transcriptional, metabolic, and ultrastructural characteristics of a diel rhythm that occurs in the symbiosis between the squid Euprymna scolopes and the luminous bacterium Vibrio fischeri. The ... Read more >>

Peptidoglycan induces loss of a nuclear peptidoglycan recognition protein during host tissue development in a beneficial animal-bacterial symbiosis.

Joshua V Troll, Dawn M Adin, Andrew M Wier, Nicholas Paquette, Neal Silverman, William E Goldman, Frank J Stadermann, Eric V Stabb, Margaret J McFall-Ngai,

Peptidoglycan recognition proteins (PGRPs) are mediators of innate immunity and recently have been implicated in developmental regulation. To explore the interplay between these two roles, we characterized a PGRP in the host squid Euprymna scolopes (EsPGRP1) during colonization by the mutualistic bacterium Vibrio fischeri. Previous research on the squid-vibrio symbiosis ... Read more >>
