A novel haloalkaliphilic archaeon, strain B23 T was isolated from the former lake Texcoco in Mexico. The strain was Gram-stain-negative, the cells coccoid to ovoid rods, red pigmented and aerobic. Strain B23 T grew in 1.7-4.3 M NaCl, at pH 6.5-9.5 and at 25-45 6C with optimal growth at 2.6-3.4 M NaCl, pH 7.5-8.5 and 37 6C. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain B23 T was most closely related to Natronobacterium gregoryi SP2 T with 97.3 % sequence similarity.doi:10.1099/ijs.0.053629-0 pmid:23749283 fatcat:njfbczhw3fcnjegj45lnhf76ua
