Salinibacter ruber DSM 13855

Names Salinibacter ruber DSM 13855
Accession numbers NC_007677, NC_007678
Background Salinibacter ruber DSM 13855 is Gram-negative, extremely halophilic, aerobic, heterotrophic, motile and red-pigmented (high proportion of carotenoids in its membrane) bacterium belonging to the Cytophaga-Flexibacter-Bacteroides group. This bacterium coexists in significant colonies with halophilic archaea under saline conditions. In contrast to other bacteria they do not regulate their intracellular salt conditions through proton pumps, but instead their protein makeup has adapted to be functional under high ionic conditions.
