Abstract

The growth rate of Chromohalobacter salexigens DSM 3043 can be stimulated in media containing 0.3 M NaCl by a 0.7 M concentration of other salts of Na+, K+, Rb+, or NH4+, Cl−, Br−, NO3−, or SO42− ions. To our knowledge, growth rate stimulation by a general high ion concentration has not been reported for any organism previously.
