    Phylogenetic Investigations on the Endosymbiotic Bacteria of Axinella donnani
    Author(s): Vimala A, Xavier Innocent B and Huxley VAJVimala A, Xavier Innocent B and Huxley VAJ

    The present study focuses on the isolation of endosymbiotic bacteria from eight different types of sponges. The sponges were collected from the southern peninsular coast of India and identified as Sigmadocia carnosa, Ircinia fasciculate, Callyspongia diffusa, Zygomycale angulosa, Clathria vulpine, Clathria gorgonids, Phloeodictyon species and Axinella donnani. For the isolation of endosymbionts, the collected sponge species were cultured in three different media such as Nutrient agar media, Zobell marine agar and Zobell marine agar + sponge extracts. The sponge extracts supplemented media produced high bacterial growth than the other media. The sponge A. donnani recorded the highest bacterial counts. Of which, 13 endosymbiotic bacterial strains (ESB) of A. donnani were screened against common pathogenic bacteria. The strains ESB-3 and ESB-7 were identified to be potential strains.. View More»
