Bacterial communities associated with five kinds of microcrustaceans (Tanycypris sp., Moina sp., Mesocyclops sp., Cypretta sp. and Heterocypris sp.) from the floodwater of a paddy field microcosm were examined by the application of denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) to PCR-amplified 16S rDNA products with universal bacterial primers and by sequencing of characteristic DGGE bands. The number of DGGE bands of the associated bacteria was small, indicating the association of specific bacterial members with the microcrustaceans studied, among which Tanycypris sp. showed the smallest number of bands. Principal component analysis (PCA) demonstrated that the community structure of the associated bacteria could be divided into three groups: Podocopida (Tanycypris sp., Cypretta sp. and Heterocypris sp.), Moina sp. and Mesocyclops sp., and further analysis separated Tanycypris sp. and Heterocypris sp. into different clusters. The duration of the incubation period affected the bacteria associated with Tanycypris sp., Moina sp. and Cypretta sp. only. Nearly all of the associated bacteria belonged to Gram-negative bacteria, especially the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides (CFB) group. Closest relatives of the DGGE bands common to three Podocopida and Mesocyclops sp. belonged to an invertebrate endosymbiont.
