Halobacillus halophilus (strain ATCC 35676 / DSM 2266 / JCM 20832 / NBRC 102448/ NCIMB 2269) is an aerobic, rod-shaped, motile, endospore-forming, Gram-positive. It is a moderate halophile that grows optimal between 0.5 and 2.0 M NaCl but even tolerates NaCl concentrations up to 3.0 M, indicating effective mechanisms to respond to a broad range of salinities. It also requires magnesium and sodium ions for growth and has the outstanding feature that growth is strictly chloride ion dependent. In addition to growth, germination of endospores and motility is also chloride dependent. (Adapted from PMID: 22583374).
