High-pressure adaptation was examined using a moderately halophilic bacterium (Micrococcus roseus), which was isolated from open seawater and capable of growing in 15% w/v NaCl (optimum NaCl concentration: 3% w/v). After treatment at 207 MPa, colony-forming units (CFUs) significantly decreased; however, the loss of integral cells after pressure was only 30% when direct cell count was performed microscopically. In order to investigate the piezotolerance of M. roseus under high pressure without… CONTINUE READING
