Cold-loving Bacteria from Antarctic and Arctic: Occurrence, Survival and Usefulness



Psychrophilic or cold loving bacteria are the most predominant type of bacteria, confined to all cold habitats of the world viz. Antarctic and Arctic. These bacteria are unique due to their ability to survive at temperatures below the freezing point of water, as they possess various strategies which facilitate their survival at low temperature. The present review is an attempt to highlight the bacterial diversity of the Antarctic and the Arctic, the biotechnological potential of the cold-loving bacteria and to also understand their survival strategies with an emphasis on the research carried out in India, at the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), Hyderabad, India.
