Query: NC_012029:1525929 Halorubrum lacusprofundi ATCC 49239 chromosome 1, complete genome Lineage: Halorubrum lacusprofundi; Halorubrum; Halobacteriaceae; Halobacteriales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: Formerly Halobacterium lacusprofundi, this organism is an extremely halophilic archaeon isolated from Deep Lake, Antarctica. Extremely halophilic archaeon isolated from the Antarctic. Halorubrum lacusprofundi is a red pigmented halophilic archaeon which has been found in hypersaline marine enviornments. Originally thought to be a psychrophile, further research determined that the optimum temperature for growth for Halorubrum lacusprofundi was from 31 - 37 degrees C.

General Information: This organism was isolated from a 2-3 million-year permafrost core in Siberia, Russia and can survive and grow rapidly at low temperatures. Analysis of long-term survival of psychrophilic organisms such as this one may aid understanding of the potential growth of organisms in astrobiology. Exiguobacterium sibiricum is a psychrotolerant organism able to grow at temperatures that range from -6 to 40 degrees C. This organism is also able to survive repeated freeze/thaw cycles which may contribute to its ability to survive in cold environments.
