Halobaeterium halobium, an archaebacterium that grows optimally in 4 M NaCl, was subjected to hypo-osmotic stress by growth in media containing either 1, 1.25, 1.65, or 2 M NaCl. Exponential growth occurred over a 48-h period in 2 M NaCl as well as in the standard 4 M NaCl growth medium. In growth media containing NaCl in a concentration below 2 M, exponential growth was observed after a 6-h lag. After 12 h of growth in the lowest NaCl concentrations, extracts from H. halobium showed nearly a… CONTINUE READING
