A variant of Archaeoglobus fulgidus VC-16 was isolated from cultures obtained after a stepwise transfer from media containing 1.8-6.3% NaCl by a plating-independent, selected-cell cultivation technique, using a laser microscope. This variant, A. fulgidus VC-16S, had a higher growth rate throughout the salt range of the parental strain, but was also able to grow in media containing NaCl up to 6.3%, whereas the parental strain could not grow above 4.5% NaCl. Diglycerol phosphate (DGP), only… CONTINUE READING
