Metrics details
Phylogeny estimation of newly discovered aquatic copiotrophic Rickettsiales indicates evolution of host dependency from extracellular species and the origin of mitochondria from an unknown proteobacterial lineage.
The evolutionary origins of obligate host association of bacterial symbionts are often difficult to ascertain and controversial. In particular, the ancient endosymbiosis that led to formation of mitochondria and the rise of eukaryotes is fraught with contention. Writing in Nature Microbiology, Schön et al.1 uncover and analyse aquatic alphaproteobacterial metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) corresponding to previously undescribed Rickettsiales clades, providing insights into how rickettsial host association emerged and evolved independent of the mitochondrial ancestor.
