In the previous books we covered aspects of enigmatic microorganisms, microbial diversity, astrobiology, and symbiosis, so this book on halophilic microbes adds a fitting link to the rest of series' books.

Since ancient times hypersaline habitats have been considered extreme environments, and some were thought not to sustain life at all.

Title. The latter was proven by the isolation of viable halophilic Archaea from several subsurface salt deposits of Permo-Triassic age. If halophilic prokaryotes on Earth can remain in viable states for long periods of time, then it is reasonable to consider, under similar extraterrestrial environments, the existence of extraterrestrial organisms.

These organisms are especially important to biodegr. I here present a brief obituary with special emphasis on Prof. Trüper’s contributions to our understanding of the halophilic prokaryotes and their adaptations to life in hypersaline environments.

He has pioneered the study of the halophilic anoxygenic phototrophic sulfur bacteria of the Ectothiorhodospira—Halorhodospira group. Some of the. Halophilic microorganisms are found in all domains of life and thrive in hypersaline (high salt content) environments.

High salt environments are inhabited by diverse halophilic and/or halotolerant microorganisms belonging to all three domains of life: Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya. Many halophilic microorganisms are 'polyextremophiles', able to thrive in environments stressed not only by high salt concentrations but also by extremes of pH, temperature, or : Aharon Oren.

These microorganisms inhabit the worlds most saline environments, like hypersaline lake, solar saltern, evaporation pond, salt flats and tidal marine environments. Halophilic bacteria have the capacity to balance the osmotic pressure of the environment and resist the denaturing effects of salts.

On the basis of their halotolerance or optimum salt. Hypersaline environments are the principal habitats of petroleum deposition. They are also of intense evolutionary and ecological interest.

The ingredients in this medium which are support the growth of halophilic actinobacteria were (Starch m15 g, Glucose 5 g, Yeast extract 5 g, Agar 20 g and artificial seawater ml pH ).

Media were composed of inorganic salts corresponding i n proportions to theAuthor: Manal Jameel Kiki, Saudi Arabia. Data set. A set of 15 halophilic enzymes, 9 of which from "extreme" halophiles and 6 from "halotolerant" organisms, was collected along with their non-halophilic structural homologues (Table 1).Among the halophilic enzymes, 8 come from Archaea that adopt the "salt-in" strategy (SALTIN), and 7 from Eubacteria that adopt the "osmolytes" strategy (OSMOL).Cited by: halophilic microorganisms and their economic values in different fields ranging from industry (food and pharmaceutical) to agriculture.

HALOPHILIC MICROORGANISMS Saline and hypersaline environments are widely distributed throughout the world either salt lakes (The Dead Sea, The Great Salt Lakes etc.) or salt mines. Besides thermophiles,hyperthermophiles,alkaliphiles,acidophiles or p- chrophiles,one of the most interesting groups of extremophiles is costituted by the halophilic organisms require high levels of salt to grow and are common inhabitants of hypersaline environments, such as lakes,salterns or saline book is.

At high concentrations of soluble salts, cytoplasm—mainly of bacteria and archaea—is exposed to high ionic strength and achieves osmotic equilibrium by maintaining a cytoplasmic salt concentration similar to that of the surrounding media.

Halophilic enzymes are Author: Luis Alberto Cira-Chávez, Joseph Guevara-Luna, Marisela YadiraSoto-Padilla, Brenda Román-Ponce, Marí. This book complements Halophilic Microorganisms, edited by A. Ventosa and published by Springer-Verlag (), Halophilic Microorganism and their Environments by A.

Oren (), published by Kluwer Academic Publishers as volume 5 of Cellular Origins, Life in Extreme Habitats and Astrobiology (COLE), and Microbiology and Biogeochemistry of.

Both mechanisms allow halophilic microorganisms to proliferate even in saturated salt solutions of varying salt composition, but the osmolyte strategy allows a more flexible adaptation to environments with changing salt concentrations.

halophilic microorganisms have advantage over their non-halophilic counterparts due to their ability to maintain their stability and catalytic properties at high salt concentrations [13, 14, 15].

Additionally, the halobacteria are reported to produce bacteriorrhodopsin, bioplastics, and various enzymes [16, 17] their potential applications. A book for anyone interested in halophilic bacteriaThe Biology of Halophilic Bacteria presents detailed information regarding methods for working with halophilic bacteria.

Helpful hints for performing various tests and assays in high salts are given, and information about data presentation and analysis is provided as well. The book will be useful to molecular biologists, biochemists 5/5(1). Extreme halophilic microorganisms, such as the red alga Dunaliella salina and the archaeal species Halobacterium in Figuregrow in hypersaline lakes such as the Great Salt Lake, which is –8 times saltier than the ocean, and the Dead Sea, which is 10 times saltier than the ocean.

Halophiles are organisms that need salt in their environment to live. Halophiles live in evaporation ponds or salt lakes such as Great Salt Lake, Owens Lake, or Dead Sea.

The name "halophile" comes from Greek for "salt-loving". Most halophiles are archaeans, but some bacteria and eukaryotes are also halophiles, such as the alga Dunaliella salina.
