Influence of zinc on the calcium carbonate biomineralization of Halomonas halophila

Dirk Rothenstein, Johannes Baier, Thomas D. Schreiber, Vera Barucha & Joachim Bill
Background: The salt tolerance of halophilic bacteria make them promising candidates for technical applications, like isolation of salt tolerant enzymes or remediation of contaminated saline soils and waters. Furthermore, some halophilic bacteria synthesize inorganic solids resulting in organic-inorganic hybrids. This process is known as biomineralization, which is induced and/or controlled by the organism. The adaption of the soft and eco-friendly reaction conditions of this formation process to technical syntheses of inorganic nano materials is desirable....
