ABSTRACT
Halopiger xanaduensis is the type species of the genus Halopiger and belongs to the euryarchaeal family Halobacteriaceae. H. xanaduensis strain SH-6, which is designated as the type strain, was isolated from the sediment of a salt lake in Inner Mongolia, Lake Shangmatala. Like other members of the family Halobacteriaceae, it is an extreme halophile requiring at least 2.5 M salt for growth. We report here the sequencing and annotation of the 4,355,268 bp genome, which includes one chromosome and three plasmids. This genome is part of a Joint Genome Institute (JGI) Community Sequencing Program (CSP) project to sequence diverse haloarchaeal genomes.

f2: Electron micrograph of H. xanaduensis SH-6.

Mentions: H. xanaduensis was isolated from a sediment sample of Lake Shangmatala in Inner Mongolia, China. The sample was enriched in liquid medium containing salts and yeast extract; the culture was then plated on agar to obtain pure colonies [1]. At the time of sample collection, the salinity of the lake was 16.7%, the temperature was 21.8°C, and the pH was 8.5 [1]. The cells were pleomorphic with the most common shape being rods. Motility was not observed [1]. An electron micrograph is shown in Figure 2. Growth was observed between 28 and 45°C with an optimum at 37°C [1]. The pH range for growth was 6.0-11.0 with an optimal pH of 7.5-8.0 [1]. Growth occurred within a salinity range of 2.5 M to 5.0 M NaCl and was optimal at 4.3M NaCl [1]. The organism is strictly aerobic but was able to reduce nitrate and nitrite with production of gas [1]. Several sugars and amino acids can serve as sole carbon and energy sources, and amino acids are not required in the growth medium [1]. The features of the organism are listed in Table 1.
