An extremely haloalkaphilic archaeon, strain T26(T), belonging to the genus Halostagnicola, was isolated from sediment of the soda lake Bange in the region of Tibet, China. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities showed that strain T26(T) was closely related to Halostagnicola alkaliphila 167-74(T) (98.4 %), Halostagnicola larsenii XH-48(T) (97.5 %) and Halostagnicola kamekurae 194-10(T) (96.8 %). Strain T26(T) grew optimally in media containing 25 % (w/v) salts, at pH… Expand
Halorussus amylolyticus sp. nov., isolated from an inland salt lake.
The phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic properties suggested that strain YC93T represents a novel species of the genus Halorussus, for which the name Halorussedus amylolyticus sp. Expand
Systematics of haloarchaea and biotechnological potential of their hydrolytic enzymes.
The current status of the haloarchaeal genera and species is summarized, the properties of haloenzymes and their potential industrial applications are discussed, and the range of already-available biocatalysts and industrial processes in which high salt concentrations inhibit the activity of regular enzymes are extended.

Taxonomy of halophilic archaea: a review
Halophilic archaea are archaea required high concentrations of salt for growth. Up to date, all the halophilic archaea belong to the phylum Euryarchaeota of the domain Archaea. Currently, halophilicExpand
Bacteria, Archaea and Viruses of Soda Lakes
The soda lake environment presents microorganisms with many combinations of physical and chemical extremes, amongst them extremes of alkaline pH, salinity (NaCl), temperature and incident radiationExpand
The aim of the present work is to define the antibiotic resistance profile of the major exponent of halophilic archaea, named Halobacterium salinarum, and to verify if some strains present antibiotic resistances and if they can transfer these resistances to bacteria present in the food chain.

Phylogenetic analyses of some extremely halophilic archaea isolated from Dead Sea water, determined on the basis of their 16S rRNA sequences
Phylogenetic analysis using approximately 1,400 base comparisons of 16S rRNA-encoding gene sequences demonstrated that the five isolates clustered closely to species belonging to three different genera--Haloferax, Halobacterium, and Haloarcula. Expand
Phylogenetic diversity of soda lake alkaliphiles
Alkaliphilic Archaea were relatively closely related to members of the genera Natronococcus and Natronobacterium, and an anaerobic, thermophilic isolate has been assigned to a new genus within the Thermotogales. Expand

25 Characterization of Lipids of Halophilic Archaea
One- or two-dimensional thin-layer chromatography (TLC) is a useful technique for the rapid characterization of the lipids present in halophilic archaeal isolates, and is of particular interest not only for its relevance for taxonomy, but also to shed light on membrane assembly and function. Expand
Proposed Minimal Standards for Description of New Taxa in the Order Halobacteriales
The minimal standards include information on the following characteristics: cell morphology; motility; pigmentation; the requirement for salt to prevent cell lysis; optimum NaCl and MgCl2 concentrations for growth and range of salt concentrations enabling growth; temperature and pH ranges for growth.
