Cannonical URL


Gr. pref. endo-, within; N.L. adj. symbioticus, from the Greek biōtikos, living together; N.L. adj. endosymbioticus, living symbiotically within [another organism]
Nomenclatural type
INSDC Nucleotide: AP025225


It is a short rod, 1.2 to 1.5 μm long and 0.4 to 0.8 μm wide. It lives in the cytoplasm, neighboring hydrogenosomes, of an anaerobic scuticociliate strain, GW7. Cultivation without the host ciliate is not possible so far. The host ciliate is maintained in the laboratory of Naoya Shinzato, University of the Ryukyus, Japan. Probe GW7Bac2 (5′-CTCTGTTTCCAGAGCCCTCGAT-3′) is available for specific detection of this species by FISH. It is the type species of the genus.
