extremophilic bacterium with high potential for applications

Deinococcus radiodurans is a gram positive extremophilic bacterium that is tolerant toward a variety of environmental stresses including Ionizing waves, oxidative stresses, dryness, light, and UV. This bacterium is capable of repairing different damages imposed on its DNA content. By having different enzymes including catalase and superoxide dismutase, it could survive the damages induced by hydrogen peroxide and superoxide compounds (1). Also, D. radiodurans has showed to survive DNA damages in outer space for three years. So far, D. radiodurans and its genes have been used in various biotechnology studies. Until now, many studies have been carried out about D. radiodurans genome to investigate its efficacy for producing recombinant industrial strains (2, 3). From the industrial aspect of biotechnology, recombinant expression of the pprI and IrrE genes have shown to efficacy of yeast for biofuel production.
