A novel yellow-pigmented, non-motile, non-sporulating, catalase- and oxidase-positive, obligately aerobic, moderately halophilic, facultatively alkaliphilic Gram-positive coccus, strain YIM Y15(T), was isolated from a brine sample from a salt mine in Yunnan, south-west China. Strain YIM Y15(T) grew in the presence of 0.5-25 % (w/v) NaCl and at pH 6.0-10.0,(More)
Two Gram-stain negative, moderately halophilic, aerobic, motile bacteria, designated strains YIM QH88T and YIM QH103, were isolated from the Qiaohou salt mine in Yunnan, southwest China. Cells of the strains were observed to be rod-shaped and produce creamy-coloured colonies. Growth of the two strains was observed at 10–45 °C (optimum 25–37 °C), at pH(More)
Mammalian interspecific hybrids provide unique advantages for mechanistic studies of speciation, gene expression regulation, and X chromosome inactivation (XCI) but are constrained by their limited natural resources. Previous artificially generated mammalian interspecific hybrid cells are usually tetraploids with unstable genomes and limited developmental(More)
A Gram-stain negative, aerobic, rod-shaped bacterial strain, YN2-31AT, was isolated from rice-field soil, Taoyuan Village, Yunnan province of China. The bacterium was observed to grow at 20–45 °C (optimum 28 °C), at pH 5.0–10.0 (optimum 7.0), and in the presence of 0–2 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum 0–1 %). Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences(More)
Although Halomonas phages belonging to the families Myoviridae and Siphoviridae have been reported, no virulent Halomonas siphoviruses are known. In this study, a virulent bacteriophage, QHHSV-1, of the family Siphoviridae that specifically infects H. ventosae QH52-2 was isolated from the Qiaohou salt mine. Restriction analysis indicated that QHHSV-1 is a(More)
