Influence of osmotic stress on desiccation and irradiation tolerance of (hyper)-thermophilic microorganisms

Beblo-Vranesevic, Kristina ; Galinski, Erwin A. ; Rachel, Reinhard ; Huber, Harald ; Rettberg, Petra


This study examined the influence of prior salt adaptation on the survival rate of (hyper)-thermophilic bacteria and archaea after desiccation and UV or ionizing irradiation treatment. Survival rates after desiccation of Hydrogenothermus marinus and Archaeoglobus fulgidus increased considerably when the cells were cultivated at higher salt concentrations before drying. By doubling the ...
