Bacillus halochares sp. nov., a halophilic bacterium isolated from a solar saltern.

Abstract

A novel halophilic bacterium, designated strain MSS4(T), was isolated from the solar salterns of Mesolongi, Greece. The micro-organism, a motile, Gram-stain-positive, aerobic rod, proliferated at salinities of 1.0-4.0 M NaCl, with optimal growth at 2.5 M NaCl. Endospores were not observed. Strain MSS4(T) showed optimal growth at 37 degrees C and pH 8.0. The… (More)
