Bacteriophage flux in endosymbionts
(Wolbachia): infection frequency, lateral transfer, and recombination rates.
Macroscopic worm endosymbionts
are frequently found in recent corals (Ross & Newman 1973; Smith 1984; Hunte et al.
'Candidatus Paenicardinium endonii', an endosymbiont
of the plant-parasitic nematode Heterodera glycines (Nemata: Tylenchida), affiliated to the phylum Bacteroidetes.
(11) These data are best explained if the nucleus and nucleolus arose in a cell that already contained a eubacterial endosymbiont
as a source of eubacterial genes.
Why wouldn't it be possible for the endosymbiont
's evolution to reverse its course and once again begin to multiply its genes?
Some Wolbachia might have gone all the way from endoparasites to endosymbionts
Also, ameba-resistant organisms do comprise acknowledged opportunistic pathogens (2), and corneal toxicity was previously reported as significantly higher for Acanthamoeba-hosting endosymbionts
Pleiotropic impact of endosymbiont
load and co-occurrence in the maize weevil Sitophilus zeamais.

Experimentally induced endosymbiont
loss and re-acquirement in the hydrothermal vent bivalve Bathymodiolus azoricus.
Baseline information on endosymbiont
identification, prevalence, intensity, and geographic distribution are necessary to facilitate management and/or mitigation of potential disease interactions between cultured and natural shellfish stocks.
