We have investigated the strategy of Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 and other members of the family Halobacteriaceae to survive ultraviolet (UV) irradiation, based on an integrated analysis of various genomic and proteomic features such as dinucleotide composition and distribution of tetranucleotides in the genome and amino acid composition of the proteins. The low dipyrimidine content may help Halobacterium reduce formation of photoproducts in its genome. The usage of residues susceptible to reactive… CONTINUE READING
