Study TypeOther
Abstract Deep-sea clam Phreagena okutanii harbor thioautotrophic symbiotic bacteria in their gill epithelial cells and nutritionally depend on their symbionts because their digestive tracts are vestigial. The symbiont fixes inorganic carbon to synthesize organic compounds. However, the major forms of inorgan .. [more]
