Abstract

Summary: The extremely halophilic archaebacterium CCM 537 was found to contain a plasmid, pHM2, of 6.0 kb. A restriction map was constructed. Southern hybridization of pHM2 DNA to DNA extracted from other sp. strains revealed the presence of a similar plasmid in one other strain. A plasmid of shared common sequences with pHM2. Other plasmids from halobacteria displayed no homology with pHM2. The characterization of pHM2 may make it useful for the development of cloning vectors for extremely halophilic archaebacteria.
