Isolation and characterization of Actinopolyspora halophila, gen. et sp. nov., an extremely halophilic actinomycete.
An actinomycete, isolated as a contaminant of a culture medium containing 25% NaCl, has been classified as Actinopolyspora halophila gen. et sp. nov. in the family Nocardiaceae. The morphology andExpand

Halocins: salt-dependent bacteriocins produced by extremely halophilic rods
Strains of halophilic rods, presumably halobacteria, produce substances that inhibit the growth of other halobacteria but not halococci or moderate halophiles. The spectrum of action of theseExpand
