Several strains of extremely halophilic archaeobacteria, both non-alkaliphilic and alkaliphilic, including Halobacterium, Haloferax and Natronobacterium species, were isolated from salt locales in India. The major phospholipids in these strains were the C20-C20-glycerol diether analogues of phosphatidylglycerolmethylphosphate (PGP-Me), phosphatidylglycerol… CONTINUE READING
