A haloalkaliphilic sulfate-respiring bacterium, strain SLSR-1, was isolated from a lactate-fed stable enrichment culture originally obtained from the extreme environment of Searles Lake, California. The isolate proved capable of growth via sulfate-reduction over a broad range of salinities (125–330 g/L), although growth was slowest at salt-saturation. Strain SLSR-1 was also capable of growth via dissimilatory arsenate-reduction and displayed an even broader range of salinity tolerance (50–330 g… 

Nature and bioprospecting of haloalkaliphilics: a review

The haloalkaliphilics belong to moderately to extremely halophilic bacteria and archaea, which have unique metabolic pathways which can be used to treat industrial pollutants, heavy metals and waste water.

Saline alkaline lakes are the focus of this book, but how do they form and how do they differ from freshwater lakes? We provide a brief introduction to soda lakes, their origin and their inhabitants,

Evaluation of Arsenic Pollution and Anaerobic Arsenic-metabolizing Bacteria of Lake Van, the World's Largest Soda Lake

Arsenic is responsible for water pollution in many places in the World and presents a serious health risk for people. Lake Van is in the position of the world's largest soda lake and there are no

Microbial Diversity and Adaptation under Salt-Affected Soils: A Review

The salinization of soil is responsible for the reduction in the growth and development of plants. As the global population increases day by day, there is a decrease in the cultivation of farmland

Influence of Sulfate Reduction on Arsenic Migration and Transformation in Groundwater Environment

The sulfate-reducing bacteria-mediated reduction process is considered to be an important mechanism affecting arsenic migration and transformation in anaerobic environments. To investigate the effect

Arsenic removing prokaryotes as potential biofilters

Diversity and biogenesis contribution of sulfate-reducing bacteria in arsenic-contaminated soils from realgar deposits

The results of this study provide new insight into the diversity and biogenesis contributions of sulfate-reducing bacteria in arsenic-contaminated soils from realgar deposits.

High arsenic tolerance in Brevundimonas aurantiaca PFAB1 from an arsenic-rich Indian hot spring

All experimental lines of evidence prove the uptake/accumulation of arsenic within the bacterial cell and will help in the exploitation of B. aurantiaca PFAB1 as a potent biological weapon to fight arsenic toxicity in the near future.
