    ABSTRACT: Two extremely halophilic archaea, strains RO1-28(T) and RO1-22, were isolated from a marine solar saltern in Jiangsu, China. Both strains required at least 0.05 M Mg(2+) and 1.7 M NaCl for growth. They were able to grow over a pH range of 6.0-8.5 and a temperature range of 25-55 degrees C, with optimal pH of 7.0 and optimal temperature of 37-40 degrees C. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strains RO1-28(T) and RO1-22 were closely related to Haladaptatus paucihalophilus, the single species of the genus Haladaptatus, with similarities of 94.0-95.2 %. The major polar lipids of the two strains were phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol phosphate methyl ester, phosphatidylglycerol sulfate and three glycolipids chromatographically identical to the glycolipids of Haladaptatus paucihalophilus JCM 13897(T). Both strains RO1-28(T) and RO1-22 had a DNA G+C content of 54.0 mol% (HPLC). The DNA-DNA hybridization value between the two strains was more than 70 % (92 %) and both strains showed low levels of DNA-DNA relatedness (32 % and 33 %) with Haladaptatus paucihalophilus JCM 13897(T). It was concluded that strains RO1-28(T) and RO1-22 represent a novel species of the genus Haladaptatus, for which the name Haladaptatus litoreus sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RO1-28(T) (=CGMCC 1.7737(T) =JCM 15771(T)).

    ABSTRACT: Two extremely halophilic archaea, strains RO2-11(T) and HO2-1, were isolated from two Chinese marine solar salterns, Rudong solar saltern and Haimen solar saltern, respectively. Cells of the two strains were polymorphic and Gram-stain-negative; colonies were red-pigmented. The two strains grew at NaCl concentrations of 2.6-4.3 M (optimum 3.9 M) and required at least 0.1 M Mg2+ for growth. They were able to grow over a pH range of 6.0-8.0 and a temperature range of 20-50 degrees C, with optimal pH of 7.5 and optimal temperature of 37 degrees C. The major polar lipids of strain RO2-11(T) and strain HO2-1 were phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol phosphate methyl ester and three glycolipids, two of them chromatographically identical to S-DGD-1 and DGD-1, the third unidentified. The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of strain RO2-11(T) and strain HO2-1 was 99.3 % and highest sequence similarity with the closest relative (Haloferax larsenii) was 91.4 %. Based on the data obtained, the two isolates could not be classified in any recognized genus of the family Halobacteriaceae. Strain RO2-11(T) and strain HO2-1 are thus considered to represent a novel species of a new genus within the family Halobacteriaceae, for which the name Halogranum rubrum gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RO2-11(T) (=CGMCC 1.7738(T) =JCM 15772(T)).

    ABSTRACT: An extremely halophilic archaeon, strain Fa-1(T), was isolated from a marine solar saltern in Fujian, China. Strain Fa-1(T) required Mg2+ and at least 2.0 M NaCl for growth. It was able to grow at pH 6.5-9.0 (optimally at pH 7.0-7.5) and at 20-55 degrees C (optimally at 37-42 degrees C). The major polar lipids of strain Fa-1(T) were phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol phosphate methyl ester, phosphatidylglycerol sulfate and a sulfated diglycosyl diether. On the basis of a 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain Fa-1(T) was closely related to nine species of the genus Halorubrum, showing sequence similarities of 97.4-98.4 %. The G+C content of the DNA of strain Fa-1(T) is 64.9 mol% (Tm). DNA-DNA hybridization values between strain Fa-1(T) and the most closely related members of the genus Halorubrum were below 51 %. On the basis of the data from this study, strain Fa-1(T) represents a novel species of the genus Halorubrum, for which the name Halorubrum litoreum sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Fa-1(T) (=CGMCC 1.5336(T) =JCM 13561(T)).
