Chloroflexi and Bacteroidetes were second and third most abundant phylum, followed by Firmicutes, Chlorobi in Cekirge, Kemalpasa and Orhaneli hot springs samples.
The dominant bacterial phylogenetic phyla present were Acidobacteria, Proteobacteria, Gemmatimonadetes, Chloroflexi, and Planctomycetes, ranging from 5% to 38% of the sequences.
These analyses, conducted for the first time, here provide robust statistical support for proposing that the origin of plant NIPs arose via HGT from bacterial AqpN rather than AqpZ, with the last common ancestor closely related to nitrite-oxidizing members of the Chloroflexi phylum.
On the basis of comparison with reference species submitted in Genbank the 16S rRNA sequences of clones showed affiliation with 8 phyla: Proteobacteria Firmicutes Acidobacteria Actinobacteria Gemmatimonadetes Bacteroidetes Planctomycetes and Chloroflexi.
In contrast to the gut and the GFPs, the feed was dominated by the phyla Firmicutes (48%) and Proteobacteria (42%); and the waterway by Chloroflexi (29%) and Proteobacteria (49%).
2007), usando los metodos moleculares de reaccion en cadena de polimerasa (PCR) y electroforesis en gel de gradiente desnaturalizante (DGGE), demostraron la presencia de Epsilonproteobacteria, Bacteroidetes, Geobactereaceae, Chlorobi y Chloroflexi en muestras de aguas subterraneas contaminadas con uranio (U) y tecnecio (Tc) sometidas a procesos de biosaneamiento.
Members of the following phyla were detected in nearly all of the samples: Actinobacteria, Bacteroidetes, Chloroflexi, Cyanobacteria, Firmicutes, and Proteobacteria (Alphaproteobacteria, Betaproteobacteria, Deltaproteobacteria, and Gammaproteobacteria).
The researchers said that the new charts suggest that 6,157 out of 9,740 prokaryotic species - including cyanobacteria, actinobacteria, bacilli and chloroflexi - share a common ancestor that was adapted to life on land.
9%, and Chloroflexi and Proteobacteria represented over 5% of the total reads.
The HMA sponge communities, however, showed more phylum-level diversity, with Proteobacteria, Chloroflexi, Acidobacteria, Actinobacteria, candidate phylum Poribacteria, and other phyla as dominant community members.
As displayed in Table 1, sequence analysis (about 650 bp) revealed the presence of 27 genera of bacteria belonging to 12 bacterial groups (the [alpha], [beta], [gamma], and [delta] classes of Proteobacteria and the Acidobacteria, Actinobacteria, Bacteroidetes, Chloroflexi, Cyanobacteria, Firmicutes, Planctomycetes, Verrucomicrobia phyla of bacteria) present in mussel homogenates.
The remaining 57% separated into the following phyla: planctomycetales (12%), actinobacteria (9%), gemmatimonadetes (9%), firmicutes (5%), chloroflexi (5%), acidobacteria (4%), and 13% of unknown bacterial origin.
