    BBC News: First Salt-Loving Bug [Halobacterium] Sequenced
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Wednesday, October 04, 2000 (1 comment)


    ``The micro-organism is a species of Halobacterium - microscopic, rod-shaped organisms found in very salty lakes, including the Great Salt Lakes and the Dead Sea. Halobacteria, like all extremophiles, are members of an unusual group of bacteria-like organisms called the archaea, the third branch of the plant and animal kingdom. Archae appeared early in the course of biological evolution and those in existence today represent relics of ancient forms of life. A few other extremophiles, mainly the types that can survive in hot springs, have already been sequenced. But this is the first salt-loving micro-organism for which the genome has been cracked.''

    I grew halobacterium halobium in shaker flasks at 37 deg celsius using oesterhelt's recipe for media. The cells on being ahrvested did not have any bacteriorhodopsin.The reason told to me was the cells might have developed an alternate pathway for transporting protons. Can anyone help me? Email me at
