Abstract

Phototrophic consortia currently represent the most highly developed interspecific association between prokaryotes and consist of green sulfur bacterial epibionts which surround a central, motile, chemotrophic bacterium. Several independent experimental findings indicate that a rapid signal transfer occurs between the epibionts and the central bacterium. First, the cell division of the partner bacteria occurs in a highly coordinated fashion. Second, consortia accumulate scotophobotactically in the light, whereby the central bacterium confers motility to the consortium and the epibionts act as light sensors. Third, the organic carbon uptake of the central bacterium seems to be controlled by the epibiont. A decade ago, a laboratory culture of the phototrophic consortium "Chlorochromatium aggregatum" could be established and maintained. Using "C. aggregatum," recent genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic studies have started to unravel the molecular basis of prokaryotic heterologous multicellularity in this model system.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 8. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 13 January 2014.
All research outputs
#437,639
of 3,631,524 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#51
of 971 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#15,536
of 112,310 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#7
of 85 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 3,631,524 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 87th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 971 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 112,310 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 85 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its contemporaries.
