Interpretive Summary: In this investigation, we report the DNA/genome sequence of salt-loving bacterial strain MS1. This strain of bacteria can survive and reproduce in salt or salt solution. Therefore, when animal hide/skin are preserved with salt, this bacteria can emulate on salt-cured hide/skin creating red stain on the surface. This phenomena called “red heat” eventually damages the commercial value of hide/skin for making leather. The outcome of the current study offers insights for understanding the prevalence and the persistence of aforesaid strain and the genomic data will facilitate to make effective control towards such strains causing red-heat in salt-packed cured hides.
Technical Abstract: Here, we report the draft genome sequence of Halomonas eurihalina MS1 which was isolated from saline soil in Alicante, Spain and causes the condition known as “red heat” to salt-packed cured hides, which damages their commercial value for making leather.
