A novel moderately halophilic bacterium belonging to the genus Halomonas was isolated from brine samples collected from Ezzemoul sabkha in north-eastern Algeria. The cells of strain 5-3(T) were Gram-negative, rod-shaped and non-motile. The strain was catalase- and oxidase-positive and produced an exopolysaccharide. Growth occurred at NaCl concentrations of 5-25% (optimum at 7.5%), at 30-50 degrees C (optimum at 37-40 degrees C) and at pH 6.0-9.0 (optimum at pH 7.5). The major fatty acids were C… Expand

Halomonas azerbaijanica sp. nov., a halophilic bacterium isolated from Urmia Lake after the 2015 drought.
A novel, slightly halophilic bacterium was isolated from water of Urmia Lake, in the Azerbaijan region of north-west Iran, and is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Halomonas, for which the name Halomon as azerbaijanica sp. Expand
The extremely halophilic archaeon Halobacterium salinarum ETD5 from the solar saltern of Sfax (Tunisia) produces multiple halocins.
The extremely halophilic archaeon Halobacterium salinarum strain ETD5 was previously isolated from the solar saltern of Sfax (Tunisia) and shown to encode and express halocin S8. The Hbt. salinarumExpand
Taxonomy, Phylogeny, and Biotechnological Interest of the Family Halomonadaceae
This chapter reviews the phylogenetic relationships and taxonomic classification of the members of the family Halomonadaceae, as well as some other aspects such as the interest of the species of this family, especially with respect to its biotechnological applications and potentialities. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within the family Halomonadaceae based on comparative 23S and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis.
There is excellent agreement between the phylogenies based on the two rRNA gene sequences, but the 23S r RNA gene showed higher resolution in the differentiation of species of the family Halomonadaceae. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within the family Halomonadaceae based on comparative 23 S and 16 S rRNA gene sequence analysis
A phylogenetic study of the family Halomonadaceae was carried out based on complete 16S rRNA and 23S rRNA gene sequences. Several 16S rRNA genes of type strains were resequenced, and 28 new sequencesExpand
Diversity of the predominant spoilage bacteria in water-boiled salted duck during storage.
The identification of the spoilage-related microbiota is helpful to better understand the bacteria ecology in water-boiled salted duck and may lead to the discovery of appropriate preservation strategies. Expand
3.1 Taxonomy of Halophiles
The archaea of Halophilic Methanogenic Archaea and Halomebacteria are studied for their role in the building and dispersal of infectious disease. Expand
The role of microbial populations in the cycling of iron and manganese from marine aggregates
It is evident that marine aggregates can be a source of Fe(II) and dissolved Mn, in coastal waters and most probably other natural water systems. Expand


Salicola salis sp. nov., an extremely halophilic bacterium isolated from Ezzemoul sabkha in Algeria.
A novel, extremely halophilic bacterium was isolated from brine samples collected from Ezzemoul sabkha in north-east Algeria and is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Salicola, for which the nameSalicola salis sp. Expand
Halomonas alkaliantarctica sp. nov., isolated from saline lake Cape Russell in Antarctica, an alkalophilic moderately halophilic, exopolysaccharide-producing bacterium.
For physiological, chemotaxonomic and genetic features (DNA-DNA hybridisation) it is proposed to classify the isolate as a new species for which the name Halomonas alkaliantarctica sp. Expand
Halomonas almeriensis sp. nov., a moderately halophilic, exopolysaccharide-producing bacterium from Cabo de Gata, Almería, south-east Spain.
A comparison of 16S rRNA gene sequences confirmed the relationship of this micro-organism to Halomonas species, and it was proposed that it forms mucoid colonies due to the production of an exopolysaccharide in the Cabo de Gata-Níjar wildlife reserve. Expand
Halovibrio variabilis gen. nov. sp. nov., Pseudomonas halophila sp. nov. and a New Halophilic Aerobic Coccoid Eubacterium from Great Salt Lake, Utah, USA
Summary The diversity of aerobic bacteria in hypersaline surface water of the North Arm of Great Salt Lake, USA, is not restricted to extreme halophiles, since also various types of moderateExpand
Halomonas boliviensis sp. nov., an alkalitolerant, moderate halophile isolated from soil around a Bolivian hypersaline lake.
Two moderately halophilic, psychrophilic, alkalitolerant bacteria, LC1(T) and LC2, both of which were isolated from a soil sample around the lake Laguna Colorada, located at 4300 m above sea level in the south-west region of Bolivia, are proposed. Expand
Halomonas neptunia sp. nov., Halomonas sulfidaeris sp. nov., Halomonas axialensis sp. nov. and Halomonas hydrothermalis sp. nov.: halophilic bacteria isolated from deep-sea hydrothermal-vent environments.
P phenotypic tests revealed that the isolates were physiologically versatile and tended to have more traits in common with each other than with closely related Halomonas species, presumably a reflection of their common deep-sea, hydrothermal-vent habitat of origin. Expand
Halomonas subglaciescola, a New Species of Halotolerant Bacteria Isolated from Antarctica
Halomonas subglaciescola sp. nov. is proposed, based on the characteristics of 29 strains of halotolerant, nonpigmented bacteria isolated from an Antarctic, hypersaline, meromictic lake. TheseExpand
Halobaculum gomorrense gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel extremely halophilic archaeon from the Dead Sea.
It is found that on the basis of 16S rRNA sequence data, the new isolate from the Dead Sea occupies a position intermediate between the positions of the Halobacterium saccharovorum group and the position of the genus Haloferax and is sufficiently different from the previously described members of theHalobacteriaceae to justify classification in a new species and a new genus.

Halomonas glaciei sp. nov. isolated from fast ice of Adelie Land, Antarctica
It was observed that DD 39 formed a robust cluster with H. variabilis, and it is proposed thatDD 39 should be placed in the genus Halomonas as a new species that isHalomonas glaciei. Expand
Carnimonas nigrificans gen. nov., sp. nov., a bacterial causative agent for black spot formation on cured meat products.
