Figure 4

FISH-CLSM analysis of bacteria in sponge sample 9b. Maximum projections of confocal stacks, showing EUB338MIX–stained bacteria in red (A and E) and sponge autofluorescence in cyan (B and F); (C and G) are the overlap of (A, B and EF), respectively. (D and H) are the three–dimensional models of (C and G), respectively, where bacteria are converted into size–adjusted spheres and the sponge tissue into semi–transparent iso–surfaces. Scale bars: (AD) 10 µm, (E–H) 20 µm.
