Reference 16S rRNA Targeted Probes for the Identification of Bacterial Strains Isolated from Cultures of the Toxic Dinoflagellate Alexandrium tamarense. Groben R, Doucette GJ, Kopp M, Kodama M, Amann R, Medlin LK. Microbial ecology. 2000.
Abstract A BSTRACTBacteria have been implicated in the production of paralytic shellfish poison (PSP) toxins, which are normally associated with bloom-forming algal species, specifically toxic dinoflagellate algae. To clarify the role that these bacteria may play in the production of PSP toxins, it is desirable to identify and localize the bacteria associated with the dinoflagellates. 16S rRNA-targeted probes offer the possibility for both, and thus, probes have been made to putatively toxigenic bacteria isolated from the PSP-related dinoflagellate Alexandrium tamarense and tested for their specificity in dot blot and in situ hybridization experiments.
