Can you tell me anything about symbiotic methanotrophs in marine mussels? My course textbook (Brock, Microbiology) mentions in passing symbiotic methanotrophic bacteria that live in the gills of marine mussels inhabiting the area around hydrocarbon vents on the sea bed. I am very interested, and would like to put them into an essay on symbiosis I am currently preparing. However, Brock is extremely vague and seems to know very little about them. Can you help?
