Query: NC_009524:1627414 Psychrobacter sp. PRwf-1 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Psychrobacter; Psychrobacter; Moraxellaceae; Pseudomonadales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism grows slower than Psychrobacter arcticus 273-4 at 4 degrees C, but is capable of growth at 37 degrees C, while strain 273-4 is not. Psychrobacter is a member of the gamma Proteobacteria family. This genus is commonly isolated from cold environments, including soil, sea-ice, and the skin and gills of fish. It has also been associated with food spoilage and is often resistant to irradiation used for food preservation. Psychrobacters have also been identified from a variety of human sources. The strain Psychrobacter sp. PRwf-1 was isolated from the skin and gills of Lutjanus vivanus caught off the coast of Loíza in northeastern Puerto Rico.

General Information: Chromohalobacter salexigens DSM 3043 was first isolated from a solar salt facility on Bonaire Island, Netherlands Antilles. A moderate halophile which can grow on a variety of salts. This bacterium is a moderate halophile, yet does not require high concentrations of sodium chloride. The salt requirements of this organism can be met by ions of other salts, such as potassium, rubidium, ammonium, bromide. Several plasmids have been isolated from this organism. Plasmid pMH1 contains genes for resistance to kanamycin, neomycin, and tetracycline. A smaller plasmid, pHE1, which does not code for antibiotic resistance genes, has also been isolated.
