The success of biotechnological processes is based on the availability of efficient and highly specific biocatalysts, which can satisfy industrial demands. Extreme and remote environments like the deep brine pools of the Red Sea represent highly interesting habitats for the discovery of novel halophilic and thermophilic enzymes. Haloferax volcanii constitutes a suitable expression system for halophilic enzymes obtained from such brine pools. We developed a batch process for the cultivation of H… 
Haloferax volcanii for biotechnology applications: challenges, current state and perspectives
TLDR
This review critically evaluates the various application potentials, challenges and toolkits available for using this extreme halophilic organism in biotechnology.
Haloferax volcanii as immobilised whole cell biocatalyst: new applications for halophilic systems
TLDR
This is the first report of whole cell–mediated biocatalysis by the halophilic archaeon H. volcanii, and this newly developed system offers halophile enzyme expression in its native environment, high product yield, stability and reusability without the addition of any expensive NADPH/NADH cofactor.
Heterologous and Homologous Expression of Proteins from Haloarchaea: Denitrification as Case of Study
TLDR
This work summarizes the main challenges of heterologous and homologous expression of enzymes from haloarchaea, paying special attention to the metalloenzymes involved in the pathway of denitrification (anaerobic reduction of nitrate to dinitrogen), a pathway with significant implications in wastewater treatment, climate change, and biosensor design.
Understanding High-Salt and Cold Adaptation of a Polyextremophilic Enzyme
TLDR
Structural and functionally characterized the β-galactosidase from H. lacusprofundi and suggest that such enzymes may be intrinsically stable and functional over an exceptionally large temperature range, help in understanding the molecular basis of a dual psychrophilic and halophilic adaptation.
Identification and Experimental Characterization of an Extremophilic Brine Pool Alcohol Dehydrogenase from Single Amplified Genomes.
TLDR
The crystal structure of 5,6-dihydroxy NADPH-bound ADH/D1 combined with biochemical analyses reveal the molecular features of its halo-thermophily, its unique habitat adaptations, and its possible reaction mechanism for atypical oxygen activation.
Haloquadratum walsbyi Yields a Versatile, NAD+/NADP+ Dual Affinity, Thermostable, Alcohol Dehydrogenase (HwADH)
TLDR
This study presents the first example of an alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) from the halophilic archaeum Haloquadratum walsbyi (HwADH), which was heterologously overexpressed in Haloferax volcanii.
Halophiles: biology, adaptation, and their role in decontamination of hypersaline environments
TLDR
This review highlights the various strategies adopted by halophiles to compensate for their saline surroundings and includes descriptions of recent studies that have used halotolerant dehalogenase-producing microbes for bioremediation of environments contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbons.
Statistical optimization for the improved production of an extracellular alkaline nuclease by halotolerant Allobacillus halotolerans MSP69: Scale-up approach and its potential as flavor enhancer of fish sauce
TLDR
A statistical optimization method was applied to enhance the alkaline nuclease production using a 20-run, 3-factor with 5-level of the central composite design (CCD) generated by design expert software and the model was proven to be adequate.
A polyextremophilic alcohol dehydrogenase from the Atlantis II Deep Red Sea brine pool
TLDR
The affiliation of ADH/A1a to a rare enzyme family of microbial cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenases is reported to explain unique structural features for halo‐ and thermoadaptation.
Archaea biotechnology.
TLDR
The aim of this review is to provide an overview of the current state of Archaea Biotechnology by describing the actual state of research and development as well as the industrial utilization of archaeal cell factories, their role and their potential in the future of sustainable bioprocessing, and to illustrate their physiological and biotechnological potential.

A comparison of two novel alcohol dehydrogenase enzymes (ADH1 and ADH2) from the extreme halophile Haloferax volcanii
TLDR
Two alcohol dehydrogenase enzymes from the extremely halophilic archaeon Haloferax volcanii were homologously expressed and subsequently purified by immobilized metal-affinity chromatography and showed much greater potential as an industrially useful biocatalyst than HvADH1.

The promoter was used to follow the consequences of depletion of the essential chaperonin protein CCT1, and to determine the ability of heterologous CCT proteins to function in H. volcanii.
Halophilic enzymes: proteins with a grain of salt.
TLDR
It is argued that the high negative surface charge of halophile proteins makes them more soluble and renders them more flexible at high salt concentrations, conditions under which non-halophilic proteins tend to aggregate and become rigid.
