A motile, rod-shaped, pink-pigmented, extremely halophilic archaeon, strain SF3-213(T), was isolated from a crystallizer pond at the Cargill Solar Salt Plant, Newark, California (USA). Analysis of the almost-complete 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that the isolate was phylogenetically related to species of the genus Halorubrum, with a close relationship to Halorubrum trapanicum NRC 34021(T) (98.6 % similarity), Halorubrum sodomense ATCC 33755(T) (98.3 %) and Halorubrum xinjiangense AS 1.3527(T… CONTINUE READING
