General Information: This organism was isolated from saline liquid (12-14%) found 11-24 m below the surface within a forty thousand-year-old Siberian permafrost at the Kolyma-Indigirka lowland in Siberia. Psychrotolerant organism. These bacteria are commonly isolated from low temperature environments, Psychrobacter spp. are cold-adapted organisms that are often isolated from extreme environments such as permafrost or the Antarctic ice. Psychrobacter cryohalolentis, formerly Psychrobacter cryopegella is an psychrotolerant bacterium. This organism can grow at -10 degrees C with rapid growth at these temperatures.
