It is important to speculate that these halophilic
bacteria with ability to form biofilm and precipitate CaCO3 in media thus playing a significant role in CO2 sequestration efficiently (Silva-Castro et al.
Two hundreds and eighteen halophilic
strains were isolated from enrichment cultures which 31.
Vibrio Species Isolated from Blood Cultures.
Plasma membrane lipid composition of the halophilic
cyanobacterium Aphanothece halophylica.
and halotolerant microorganisms: an overview historical perspective, FEMS Microbiol.
The main aim of the project is to improve the conservation status of habitats in the Ponidzie region, especially those priority habitats listed in Annex I of the Habitats Directive: xerotherm turfs, thermophilic inland sand turfs, thermophilic oakwoods, and inland halophilic
salty meadows, pastures and reed.
Degradation of histamine by extremely halophilic
archaea isolated from high salt-fermented fishery products.
Thus, much research interest has been generated in the production of xylanase under halophilic
All the isolates grew efficiently on NaCl free medium which also indicated that isolates were halotolerant in nature not halophilic
ABOVE: red marshland formed by halophilic
('salt-loving') microorganisms in Searles Lake in the Mojave Desert, California, USA.
Cris Benton uses aerial kite photography to capture the vibrant colors of the South San Francisco Bay salt evaporation ponds created by halophilic
microorganisms that adapt to the various salinities of the ponds.
plants growing in environments, in which the NaCl concentration fluctuates widely, increase synthesis of glycine betaine in response to salt stress, correlating with salt resistance (Rains & Valentine, 1979; Storey & Wyn Jones, 1975).
Occurrence, diversity, and pathogenicity of halophilic
Ectoine from halophilic
microorganisms induces the expression of hsp70 and hsp7OB' in human keratinocytes modulating the proinflammatory response.
Further chapters look at how to isolate, extract, and use halophilic
microorganisms; the biotechnological applications of cold-adapted bacteria; ecology and biochemistry of thermophiles; applications in food production, biofuels, textile substrates, industrial recovery of metals, polymer production, and radiation resistance.
