Abstract

CHIANG, Oscar E; MIDDELBOE, Mathias  and  QUINONES, Renato A. FIRST RECORD OF VIRAL ABUDANCE IN COLIUMO BAY AND THEand the continental shelf off central chile. Gayana (Concepc.) [online]. 2007, vol.71, n.1, pp.124-131. ISSN 0717-652X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-65382007000100014.

The abundance of virus like particles (VLP) was determined for the first time in the water column and sediment of Coliumo Bay and on a station on the continental shelf off central Chile. The VLP decreases with depth in the water column with a surface maximum of 4.1 x 107 VLP mL-1 and 5.87 x 107 VLP mL-1 on the shelf and Coliumo Bay, respectively. In the sediments the VLP ranged between 4.28 x 108 VLP mL (Coliumo Bay) and 1.01 x 108 VLP mL (shelf). The abundance of VLP is higher at the Bay both in the water column and in the sediment.

Keywords : Viruses; virus-like particles; prokaryotes; Humboldt Current System.
