Abstract

A Gram-negative, aerobic, neutrophilic and extremely halophilic archaeon (strain AJ201), isolated from Ayakekum salt lake on the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau, was investigated by a polyphasic approach. The DNA G+C content of strain AJ201 was 65.7 mol%. The major polar lipid profile and phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences supported the allocation of the strain to the genus . The results of DNA–DNA hybridizations and physiological and biochemical tests allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain AJ201 from closely related species. Therefore, strain AJ201 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is strain AJ201 (=CGMCC 1.5343=JCM 13916).
