We have isolated a predominantly triangular disc-shaped halophilic archaebacterium, strain TR-1, from a Japanese saltern soil. The taxonomical characteristics of this strain led us to propose a new speciesHaloarcula japonica. The cell division ofHa. japonica strain TR-1 was analyzed by time lapse microscopic cinematography. Cell plates were laid down asymmetrically, generating triangular or rhombic daughter cells which then separated. We have demonstrated the occurrence of a glycoprotein with… CONTINUE READING
