Title Metabolic co-dependence drives the evolutionarily ancient Hydra-Chlorella symbiosis.
Journal Elife
Abstract sp. A99 revealed a large number of amino acid transporters and a degenerated nitrate assimilation pathway, presumably as consequence of the adaptation to the host environment. Our observations portray ancient symbiotic interactions as a codependent partnership in which exchange of nutrients appears to be the primary driving force.
