Halomonas ventosae sp, nov. includes three moderately halophilic, exopolysaccharide-producing strains isolated from saline soils in Jaén (south-eastern Spain). These strains can grow anaerobically using either nitrate or nitrite as terminal electron acceptor and hydrolyse both tyrosine and phenylalanine. Their G+C content varies between 72.6 and 74.3 mol%.(More)
Three Halomonas strains, FP34, FP35T and FP36, which were isolated from soil samples taken from Fuente de Piedra, a saline wetland in the province of Málaga in southern Spain, are described. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences show that the three isolates belong to the genus Halomonas in the gamma-Proteobacteria and form an independent(More)
This study was undertaken to identify exopolysaccharide-producing bacteria gathered from 18 hypersaline habitats. Phenotypic studies performed with 134 isolates revealed the majority of them to be Gram-negative rods with respiratory metabolism, belonging to the genus Halomonas. A numerical analysis of the 114 phenotypic data showed that at an 80% similarity(More)
