Haloferax volcanii (strain ATCC 29605 / DSM 3757 / IFO 14742 / NCIMB 2012 / DS2) is a moderate halophilic archaeon isolated from bottom sediment from the Dead Sea. It is named in honour of Benjamin Volcani who pioneered the microbiology of the Dead Sea. H.volcanii possesses the properties of the halobacteria, but differs from the known species in two important respects; the cells are disc shaped and often cupped when grown under optimum conditions, and the optimum requirements for sodium chloride is in the range 1.7-2.5 molar which is about half of that generally reported for the halobacteria. The optimum sodium chloride concentration for growth is close to that found in the Dead Sea and the tolerance for magnesium chloride is very high (adapted from PMID: 1190944 and 20333302). A number of strains of DS2 have been derived for use in transformation, among them are DS70 (see PMID 11283291), WFD11 (see PMID 2825193) and WR 340 (see PMID 12533452).
