Hepatoplasma crinochetorum Ts
Abstract
ABSTRACT “ Candidatus Hepatoplasma crinochetorum” Ps is an extracellular symbiont residing in the hepatopancreas of the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber . Its genome is highly similar to that of the close relative “ Ca. Hepatoplasma crinochetorum” Av from Armadillidium vulgare . However, instead of a clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat (CRISPR)-Cas system

The Pine Bark Adelgid, Pineus strobi, Contains Two Novel Bacteriocyte-Associated Gammaproteobacterial Symbionts

Abstract
ABSTRACT Bacterial endosymbionts of the pine bark adelgid, Pineus strobi (Insecta: Hemiptera: Adelgidae), were investigated using transmission electron microscopy, 16S and 23S rRNA-based phylogeny, and fluorescence in situ hybridization. Two morphologically different symbionts affiliated with the Gammaproteobacteria were present in distinct bacteriocytes. One of them (“ Candidatus

‘Candidatus Protochlamydia amoebophila’, an endosymbiont of Acanthamoeba spp

Ca. Protochlamydia amoebophila
Abstract
The obligately intracellular coccoid bacterium UWE25, a symbiont of Acanthamoeba spp., was previously identified as being related to chlamydiae based upon the presence of a chlamydia-like developmental cycle and its 16S rRNA gene sequence. Analysis of its complete genome sequence demonstrated that UWE25 shows many characteristic features of chlamydiae, including dependency on host-derived metabolites, composition of the cell envelope and the ability to thrive as an energy parasite within the cel
