Query: NC_007677:1312243 Salinibacter ruber DSM 13855, complete genome Lineage: Salinibacter ruber; Salinibacter; Rhodothermaceae; Bacteroidetes Order II; Bacteroidetes; Bacteria General Information: This organism is an extremely halophilic aerobe originally isolated from saltern crystallizer ponds in Spain. These bacteria can coexist 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.

General Information: Isolated from the benthal mud of a petroleum-contaminated site in Bohai Sea, China. Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the seabed mud of Bohai Sea, in a petroleum-contaminated region. It is cold tolerant (grows between 4 to 37°C, optimum 30°C), salt tolerant (5% NaCl), and able to utilize diesel oils as the sole carbon source for growth.
