Abstract

A single-cell-derived pure culture of Haloarcula marismortui was obtained using the optical tweezers technique. Analysis of the 16S rRNA genes unambiguously demonstrated two 5% different 16S rRNA sequences. In addition, expression of both operons in the same cell was shown by fluorescence in situ hybridization with operon-specific probes.
