Quick Reference

(family Halobacteriaceae)

A genus of bacteria that require the presence of salt for survival and growth; in the absence of salt the cells may disintegrate. Some strains can carry out a unique type of energy-yielding process, obtaining energy directly from sunlight in a non-photosynthetic process which involves a specialized region of the cell membrane called the ‘purple membrane’.
