Strains of both Archaea (a strain of Haloferax elongans and a Halobacterium salinarum) and Bacteria (a strain each of Arhodomonas, Marinobacter, and Halomonas) were inhibited with elevated levels of Hg, Pb, Cu, Cd, and As and were more sensitive to these metals in the presence of crude oil [55].
To test this hypothesis so as to understand how Halobacterium regulates its genetic networks in response to varying environmental factors, we needed to look at several interacting elements of its genetic network, including mRNA, protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions, protein evolutionary history and protein metabolic function.
