Isolation of UV-B resistant bacteria from two high altitude Andean lakes (4,400 m) with saline and non saline conditions
(Microbiology Research Foundation, 2009-12)
Laguna (L.) Negra and L. Verde are high altitude Andean lakes located at the 4,400 m altitude in the Andean desert (Puna) in the Argentine northwest. Both lakes are exposed to extreme weather conditions but differ in ...
Isolation of Bacteria from Remote High Altitude Andean Lakes Able to Grow in the Presence of Antibiotics
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2009-01)
High altitude Andean lakes are placed in Puna desert over 4400 above sea level. Completely isolated, they are exposed to extreme environmental factors like high levels of salinity, UV radiation and heavy metals and low ...
Forged under the Sun: Life and Art of Extremophiles from Andean Lakes
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2016-01)
High-altitude Andean lakes (HAAL) are a treasure chest for microbiological research in South America. Their indigenous microbial communities are exposed to extremely high UV irradiation and to multiple chemical extremes ...
Bacterioplankton composition in tropical high elevation lakes of the Andean plateau
(Oxford University Press, 2018)
High-elevation lakes in the tropics are subject to extreme environmental fluctuations and microbes may harbor a unique genomic repertoire, but their composition and diversity are largely unknown. Here, we compared the ...
Bacterioplankton composition in tropical high-elevation lakes of the Andean plateau
(Oxford University Press, 2018)
© FEMS 2018. High-elevation lakes in the tropics are subject to extreme environmental fluctuations and microbes may harbor a unique genomic repertoire, but their composition and diversity are largely unknown. Here, we ...
UV-resistant Acinetobacter sp. isolates from Andean wetlands display high catalase activity
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2011-04)
Andean wetlands are characterized by their extreme environmental conditions such as high UV radiation, elevated heavy metal content and salinity. We present here the first study on UV tolerance and antioxidant defense of ...
Halomonas vilamensis sp. nov., isolated from high-altitude Andean lakes
(Society For General Microbiology, 2011-06)
A Gram-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacterium (SV325T) was isolated from the sediment of a hypersaline lake located at 4600 m above sea level (Laguna Vilama, Argentina). Strain SV325T formed cream-to-pink ...
Extrachromosomal genetic elements in Micrococcus
(Springer-Verlag Berlin, 2012-11-09)
Micrococci are Gram-positive G+C-rich, nonmotile, nonspore-forming actinomycetous bacteria. Micrococcus comprises ten members, with Micrococcus luteus being the type species. Representatives of the genus play important ...

High-Up: A Remote Reservoir of Microbial Extremophiles in Central Andean Wetlands
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-12)
The Central Andes region displays unexplored ecosystems of shallow lakes and salt flats at mean altitudes of 3700 m. Being isolated and hostile, these so-called ?High-Altitude Andean Lakes? (HAAL) are pristine and have ...
