Metabolic probes for imaging endosymbiotic bacteria within toxic dinoflagellates

Author affiliations

Abstract

Fluorescence microscopy offers an important tool for the study of complex biological phenomena such as symbiosis. Here we identify a strategy that adapts the unique differences between the secondary metabolism in host and guest symbiotic species to selectively image endosymbiotic organisms. The method is demonstrated by application to the complex symbiotic relationships in toxic marine dinoflagellates.
