The paper deals with characterization of some extremely halophilic archaea isolated from surface water samples taken from Telega (Palada) salt lake, located in Prahova county, Romania. Taxonomic investigations have been conducted for several strains isolated in media with a high salt concentration. Salt deposit from Telega (formed in Neogen period) is located underground in the village with the same name in Prahova county. The area is a hillock of sub-Carpathian Mountain from which salt was… Expand

Isolation of a Halophilic, Bacteriorhodopsin-producing Archaeon, Haloferax larsenii RG3D.1 from the Rocky Beach of Malvan, West Coast of India
ABSTRACT Haloarchaea live in saline environments and require salt for their growth. The present study reports on the isolation of a haloarchaeal strain RG3D.1 identified as Haloferax larsenii usingExpand
Description of a halocin-producing Haloferax larsenii HA1 isolated from Pachpadra salt lake in Rajasthan
TLDR
Halocin, produced by strain HA1, was stable up to 100 °C and in a pH range of 5.0–9.0, suggesting proteinaceous nature of the compound and may be applicable to the preservation of salted foods. Expand
Diversity and production of extracellular polysaccharide by halophilic microorganisms
Halophilic microorganisms derived from diverse thalassohaline and athalassohaline environments including marine estuaries, saline and soda lakes, inland solar salterns and acidic habitats areExpand
SCREENING OF EXTREMLY HALOPHILIC ARCHAEA FOR ITS BIOTECHNOLOGICAL POTENTIAL.
TLDR
Haloarchaea are of potential importance in pharmaceutical, industrial, textile and food industry and are tested for their ability to produce industrially important extracellular enzymes. Expand
Bioelectricity production and desalination of Halomonas sp. – the preliminary integrity approach
TLDR
Production of microbial electricity using a newly isolated strain from seawater using a new strain of halophilic microorganism isolated from coastal areas in Tuticorin was the aim of this study. Expand
Molecular characterization by PCR-RFLP of indigenous fungal isolates from hypersaline stream water in România
TLDR
The molecular characterization of fungal isolates at species level was performed using PCR-RFLP analysis of the 5.8S-ITS region and the elongase-encoding gene (ELO) was chosen as a genetic marker followed by digestion with endonuclease HhaI. Expand
Exploration of a haloarchaeon, Halostagnicola larsenii, isolated from rock pit sea water, West Coast of Maharashtra, India, for the production of bacteriorhodopsin
The aim of the present investigation was to isolate haloarchaea from rock pit sea water, West Coast of India and to explore their potential in the production of bacteriorhodopsin (BR) which convertsExpand
Biological properties of carotenoids extracted from Halobacterium halobium isolated from a Tunisian solar saltern
TLDR
The bacterial extracts under investigation were noted to exhibit the strongest free radical scavenging activity with high carotenoid concentrations, and showed significant antiproliferative activity against HepG2 human cancer cell lines. Expand
The Lipase Activity from Moderately Halophilic and Halotolerant Microorganisms Involved in Bioconversion of Waste Glycerol from Biodiesel Industry
TLDR
This work deals with the isolation, purification and kinetic characterization of lipase from moderately halophilic and halotolerant strains, namely Marinococcus halophilus JCM 2472 and strain S3-6 and shows catalytic activity at pH 8–10 and in a wide range of temperatures with optimum at values over 60 °C. Expand
Halophilic Microorganisms from Man-Made and Natural Hypersaline Environments: Physiology, Ecology, and Biotechnological Potential
TLDR
Current applications of halophilic prokaryotes are presented, including bioremediation, extracellular enzymes, exopolysaccharides, and halocins, and promising developments such as S-layers and bionanotechnology are discussed. Expand
