We review and update the work on genetic elements, e.g., viruses and plasmids (exluding IS elements and transposons) in the kingdom Crenarchaeota (Thermoproteales and Sulfolobales) and the orders Thermococcales and Thermoplasmales in the kingdom Euryarchaeota of the archael domain, including unpublished data from our laboratory. The viruses of Crenarchaeota(More)
The component compositions of the DNA-dependent RNA polymerases of the extremely thermophilic, anaerobic sulfur-respiring archaebacteria Thermoproteus tenax and Desulfurococcus mucosus strongly resemble each other but also that of the RNA polymerase of Sulfolobus acidocaldarius suggesting that both organisms belong to the same novel order Thermoproteales,(More)
DNAs from 16 species of archaebacteria including 6 novel isolates were hybridized with 16S rRNAs from 7 species representing different orders or groups of the urkingdom of archaebacteria. The yields, normalized for the number of genes perµg of DNA, and the temperature stabilities of all hybrids were determined and related to each other. A taxonomic tree(More)
