Ulrike Pfreundt, Dina Spungin, Shengwei Hou, Björn Voß, Ilana Berman-Frank, Wolfgang R Hess
De-novo assembly of a metagenomic dataset obtained from a decaying cyanobacterial Trichodesmium bloom from the New Caledonian lagoon resulted in a complete giant phage genome of 257,908bp, obtained independently with multiple assembly tools. Noteworthy, gammaproteobacteria were an abundant fraction in the sequenced samples. Mapping of the raw reads with 99% accuracy to the giant phage genome resulted in an average coverage of 262X. The closest sequenced relatives, albeit still distant, are the Pseudomonas phages PaBG from Lake Baikal and Lu11 isolated from a soil sample from the Philippines...

To explore the molecular mechanism of triploidy effect in the pearl oyster Pinctada fucata, two RNA-seq libraries were constructed from the mantle tissue of diploids and triploids by Roche-454 massive parallel pyrosequencing. The identification of differential expressed genes (DEGs) between diploid and triploid may reveal the molecular mechanism of triploidy effect. In this study, 230 down-regulated and 259 up-regulated DEGs were obtained by comparison between diploid and triploid libraries. The gene ontology and KEGG pathway analysis revealed more functional activation in triploids and it may due to the duplicated gene expression in transcriptional level during whole genome duplication (WGD)...

Variation at the genomic level is important for understanding a species' demographic and phylogenetic history, in addition to identifying candidate regions that may be under selection and important to local adaptation. We used restriction-site associated DNA (RAD) sequencing to sample single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from the grass rockfish genome (Sebastes rastrelliger) to assess range-wide patterns of population structure and test for signatures of selection (i.e. outlier loci). Two different filtering criteria yielded 6572 and 10,393 SNPs that were genotyped in over 70% of 110 individuals from six sampling areas using RAD loci...

Many dinoflagellates are known to cause red tides and often outgrow non-motile diatoms and motile small flagellates through active vertical migration between well-lit surface and eutrophic deep waters and/or by locating and ingesting prey cells. Their flagella play important roles in these two critical behaviors. However, the structural and functional genes of dinoflagellate flagella are very little known. Thus, a de novo assembly and characterization of the transcriptome of the fast-swimming dinoflagellate Ansanella granifera were conducted and its flagellum genes were compared with those of other dinoflagellates, motile small flagellates, and non-motile protist species...

Increasing evidence suggests that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play diverse roles in cellular processes, including in the regulation of embryogenesis and growth. However, little is known about the role of lncRNAs in marine invertebrates inhabiting changing environments. Therefore, the aim of this study was to present the first characterization of lncRNAs in an intertidal marine gastropod. Specifically, Tegula atra individuals were sampled in four sites of the central-northern Chilean coastline (28-31°) during summer and winter...

Circular RNA (circRNA) was first reported over thirty years ago. With the development of high-throughput sequencing technologies, circRNA has been identified in an increasing number of species. However, few studies on circRNA have been reported in teleost fish. Accumulating transcriptome and phenotype data enable us to probe the biological functions of circRNA in fish species. Here, we report the identification of circRNAs from RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) data in large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea), a commercially important marine fish in China and East Asia...

Brown algae have evolved complex multicellularity in the heterokont lineage. They are phylogenetically distant to land plants, fungi and animals. Especially, the members of Laminariales (so-called kelps) have developed highly differentiated tissues. Extracellular matrix (ECM) plays pivotal roles in a number of essential processes in multicellular organisms, such as cell adhesion, cell and tissue differentiations, cell-to-cell communication, and responses to environmental stimuli. In these processes, a set of extracellular secreted proteins called the secretome operates remodeling of the physicochemical nature of ECM and signal transduction by interacting with cell surface proteins and signaling molecules...

The Gulf of Naples is a dynamical area with intense exchanges between offshore oligotrophic and coastal eutrophic waters with frequent freshwater inputs. The Sarno River, one of the most polluted rivers in Europe, strongly contributes to the pollution of the area, discharging high amounts of heavy metals and organic wastes from heavily cultivated and industrial areas. This paper reports on the diversity and community structure of the marine residential Bacteria and Archaea of the Gulf of Naples in an area close to the river Sarno plume and investigates their small-scale taxonomic diversity and expression patterns as a proxy of potential metabolic activity using metagenomics and metatranscriptomics...

The water column in the oligotrophic Gulf of Aqaba/Eilat experiences distinct seasonal cycles with the cooling air and water temperatures of late fall and winter destabilizing the thermocline and forming mixed layer depths reaching 300 to 700m. As air temperatures warm thermal re-stratification results in a stable thermocline throughout the summer which physically separates a photic, nutrient-poor surface layer from an aphotic, nutrient-rich deep layer. Here we present the first metatranscriptome dataset, and its taxonomic assignments, sampled from three depths of the 700m deep Station A in the Gulf of Aqaba during the summer stratification (surface - 10m, deep chlorophyll maximum (DCM) - 85m, deep aphotic zone -500m)...

The anadromous Atlantic salmon utilizes both fresh and salt water (FW and SW) habitats during its life cycle. The parr-smolt transformation (PST) is an important developmental transition from a FW adapted juvenile parr to a SW adapted smolt. Physiological changes in osmoregulatory tissues, particularly the gill, are key in maintaining effective ion regulation during PST. Changes are initiated prior to SW exposure (preparative phase), and are completed when smolts enter the sea (activational phase) where osmotic stress may directly stimulate changes in gene expression...

A prophage namely vB_RhkS_P1 was induced by mitomycin C from Rhodovulum sp. P5 in the shallow-sea hydrothermal systems. The vB_RhkS_P1 had siphovirus-like morphology, and the average particle had a head size of approximately 61nm, and the tail length approximately 93nm. The genome of vB_RhkS_P1 was a size of 38.8kbp, 67.5% GC content, and 59 open reading frames. The genome contained Mu-like head structural genes but its genomic content was distinct from Mu or Mu-like phages.

The gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) and the European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) are the most important aquaculture species in the Mediterranean Sea and since the last decade it has been seen an exponential increase in their available molecular resources. In order to improve accessibility to transcriptome resources, Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs), mRNA sequences and raw read sequences were assembled and deposited in BLAST queryable databases. The publicly available sea bream and sea bass sequences (6...

More and more genomes are sequenced and a great range of biological questions can be examined at the genomic level in a growing number of organisms. Testing the function of genome features, from gene networks, genome organization, conserved non-coding sequences to microRNAs, and, more generally, experimentally addressing the genotype-phenotype relationship is now possible owing to the clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-Cas9 revolution of genome editing. In the present review, we give a brief overview of the CRISPR/Cas9 toolbox and different strategies for genome editing currently available...

Low temperature and high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) are two of the most remarkable environmental factors influencing deep-sea ecosystem. The adaptive mechanisms of microorganisms which live in these extreme environments to low temperature and high pressure warrant investigation. In this study, the global gene expression patterns of the deep-sea bacterium Shewanella piezotolerans WP3 in response to cold (0 °C) and HHP (50 MPa) shock were evaluated through DNA microarray analysis. Results revealed that 22, 66, and 106 genes were differentially expressed after WP3 was respectively exposed to cold shock for 30, 60, and 90 min...

For microorganisms, heat shock is a major stressful condition. Heat shock is characterized by sudden temperature increases that damage important protein structures and interfere with essential cellular functions. In this study, global gene expression patterns of the deep-sea bacterium Shewanella piezotolerans WP3 in response to heat shock were studied by DNA microarray analysis. Overall, 438, 573, and 627 genes were found to be differentially expressed after heat shock for 30, 60, and 90min, respectively. Functional classification of differentially transcribed genes was performed using the Clusters of Orthologous Groups of Proteins database...

Intertidal mussels are often used to understand how life is orchestrated under tidal regimes of submergence and aerial emersion. The California ribbed mussel, Mytilus californianus, occurs predominantly in the rocky intertidal and is generally studied in the context of intertidal adaptation. We monitored M. californianus under conditions of constant submergence and observed spontaneous episodes of normal versus reduced cardiac activity. Complementary transcriptome and metabolome data indicated that these episodes were correlated with large-scale changes in the physiological state of the mussel, with periods of low cardiac activity indicative of a switch to anaerobic metabolism...
