Fig. 18. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (CARD-FISH) of Eel River Basin sediment. (a and b) Shown are oligonucleotide probes targeting archaeal ANME-2c (ANME2c_760, blue), Desulfosarcina (DSS_225, green), and Desulfobulbaceae (DBB_660, red) (a) and ANME-2 archaea (Eel_932, red), Desulfobacteriaceae (DSS_658, green), and Betaproteobacteria (Bet_42a, blue) (b Lower). Collage of two pictures. (b Upper) ANME-2 archaea (Eel_932, red) and Betaproteobacteria (Bet_42a, green) and a general DNA stain (DAPI, blue). (c and d) ANME-2 (Eel_932, red), Desulfobacteriaceae (DSS_658, green), and Alphaproteobacteria (Alpha_986, blue). (Scale bars, 10 μm.)
