Inside their bodies, the worms harbor endosymbiotic
microbes; in exchange for a safe place to live, the microbes use the vent chemicals to produce organic carbon that feeds the tubeworms.
In fact, according to the theory of symbiogenesis, which is increasingly supported by scientific evidence, chloroplasts, the organelles responsible for photosynthesis, are nothing more than endosymbiotic
cyanobacteria (Margulis, 1981; Margulis & Bermudes, 1985; Sapp et al.
The earliest endosymbiotic
worm fossils are known from Late Ordovician rugose (Elias 1986) and tabulate corals (Tapanila 2004) and are preserved as bioclaustrations.
approach: Endosymbionts of ticks are almost unexplored and appear to be a potential target for the control of ticks.
The fact that Parachlamydia is endosymbiotic
at 30[degrees]C and lytic at 37[degrees]C suggests that the bacteria present within amoebae in the cooler upper respiratory tract may be liberated when the amoebae reach the warmer lower respiratory tract (9).
The role of endosymbiotic
Wolbachia bacteria in the pathogenesis of river blindness.
theory is a milestone of 20th-century biology, showing that symbiosis can be a creator of new worlds of organisms, indeed, the very world we know.
Tom Cavalier-Smith, an evolutionary biologist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, later modified this endosymbiotic
exists in an endosymbiotic
relationship with their host, being temporarily able to survive and proliferate within gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and finally excreted in the faeces (Hong et al.
Investigating the biodiversity, ecology, and phylogeny of endosymbiotic
dinoflagellates in the genus Symbiodinium using the ITS region: in search of a "species" level marker.
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon synthesized by endosymbiotic
archaea can contribute to global warming.
DNA from contaminating external fungi should be eliminated, if possible, prior to determining if there are endosymbiotic
fungi associated with a laboratory colony of the Asian citrus psyllid Diaphorina citri Kuwayama (Hemiptera: Psyllidae).
