Example text

The most widespread representatives of Archaea, Eubacteria, and Eukarya in thassohaline environments are microorganisms belonging to the orders Halobacteriales and Haloquadratum; Salinibacter and Halanaerobiales; and the genus Dunaliella, respectively. In Sect. 5, increased salt concentrations in some alkaliphile cultures were considered to be deleterious. On the other hand, lower salt concentrations promote cell lysis. To counterbalance external osmotic pressure, halophiles maintain their turgor by accumulating inorganic ions, such as potassium chloride, in the cytosol such that their internal salt concentration is always comparable to that of their external environment (Pflüger and Müller 2004).

5, increased salt concentrations in some alkaliphile cultures were considered to be deleterious. On the other hand, lower salt concentrations promote cell lysis. To counterbalance external osmotic pressure, halophiles maintain their turgor by accumulating inorganic ions, such as potassium chloride, in the cytosol such that their internal salt concentration is always comparable to that of their external environment (Pflüger and Müller 2004). Osmolytes or organic molecules are also produced to increase turgor pressure, while salt is eliminated from the cytosol.
