Quantitative proteomics of biofilm formation of the Antarctic archaeon Halorubrum lacusprofundi

ABSTRACT: Halorubrum lacusprofundi is an important member of Deep Lake in Antarctica, representing ~10% of the lake population (DeMaere et al., 2013). Deep Lake is in the Vestfold Hills, East Antarctica (68°33’36.8S, 78°11’48.7E) and is 36 m deep, monomictic, and perennially cold (down to -20°C) (DeMaere et al., 2013; Williams et al., 2014; Tschitschko et al., 2015; Tschitschko et al., 2016). In this project, using quantitative proteomics (8-plex iTRAQ labeling), proteins, pathways and cellular processes important for biofilm formation were determined for Hrr. lacusprofundi. The data provided a new level of understanding about molecular mechanisms and regulatory networks involved in adaptation of Hrr. lacusprofundi to biofilm formation. DeMaere, M. Z., Williams, T.

Biofilms enhance rates of gene exchange, access to specific nutrients, and cell survivability. Haloarchaea in Deep Lake, Antarctica, are characterized by high rates of intergenera gene exchange, metabolic specialization that promotes niche adaptation, and are exposed to high levels of UV-irradiation in summer. Halorubrum lacusprofundi from Deep Lake has previously been reported to form biofilms. Here we defined growth conditions that promoted the formation of biofilms and used microscopy and enz  ...[more]
