Disease relevance of Roseobacter


High impact information on Roseobacter

  • The fish probiotic bacterium Roseobacter strain 27-4 grows only as rosettes and produces its antibacterial compound under static growth conditions [4].
  • At both time points, a high proportion of members of the Roseobacter clade incorporated leucine at all concentrations (55 to 80% and 86 to 94%, respectively) [5].
  • Production of antibacterial compounds may be quorum regulated, and we identified the acylated homoserine lactone (3-hydroxy-decanoyl homoserine lactone) from cultures of Roseobacter 27-4 using LC-HR-MS [6].
  • Here we characterize genes linked to pcaH and -G, which encode protocatechuate 3,4-dioxygenase, in eight closely related members of the Roseobacter lineage (pairwise 16S rRNA gene sequence identities, 92 to 99%) [1].
  • Diverse organization of genes of the beta-ketoadipate pathway in members of the marine Roseobacter lineage [1].

Chemical compound and disease context of Roseobacter


Gene context of Roseobacter

  • The type strain is Roseobacter gallaeciensis BS107T (= CIP 105210T) [11].
  • Roseobacter algicola sp. nov., a new marine bacterium isolated from the phycosphere of the toxin-producing dinoflagellate Prorocentrum lima [12].
  • Characterization of porin from Roseobacter denitrificans [13].
