A RAPD-based survey of thermophilic bacilli in milk powders from different countries.
Description of Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus gen. nov., sp. nov: an obligately anaerobic, extremely thermophilic, cellulolytic bacterium.
The strain designated Tp8T 6331 is differentiated from thermophilic cellulolytic clostridia on the basis of physiological characteristics and phylogenetic position within the Bacillus/Clostridium subphylum of the Gram-positive bacteria.
A RAPD-based comparison of thermophilic bacilli from milk powders.
Fervidobacterium nodosum gen. nov. and spec. nov., a new chemoorganotrophic, caldoactive, anaerobic bacterium
A new species of extremely thermophilic, glycolytic anaerobic bacterium isolated from a New Zealand hot spring, Fervidobacterium nodosum, which was inhibited by tetracycline, penicillin and chloramphenicol indicating that the organism was a eubacterium.
Thermonema lapsum gen. nov., sp. nov., a Thermophilic Gliding Bacterium
These strains are described here as a new genus and species, Thermonema lapsum, that are apparently unicellular aerobic filaments that grow optimally at 60°C and are susceptible to penicillin G.
Thermoanaerobacterium aotearoense sp. nov., a Slightly Acidophilic, Anaerobic Thermophile Isolated from Various Hot Springs in New Zealand, and Emendation of the Genus Thermoanaerobacterium
It is proposed that strain JW/SL-NZ613T (T = type strain) and five similar strains isolated from samples collected in New Zealand represent a new species, Thermoanaerobacterium aotearoense, based on properties such as formation of elemental sulfur from thiosulfate, growth at acidic pH values at elevated temperatures, and the results of a 16S rRNA sequence comparison performed.
The phylogenetic position of the Thermococcus isolate AN1 based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis: a proposal that AN1 represents a new species, Thermococcus zilligii sp. nov.
It is proposed that strain AN1 represents a new species of Thermococcus zilligii, and the type strain is DSM 2770, which is similar to other thermococci but with lower optimal NaCl concentration and generally lower optimal temperature.
Distribution and phylogenies of enzymes of the Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas pathway from archaea and hyperthermophilic bacteria support a gluconeogenic origin of metabolism.
The universal distribution of the trunk pathway enzymes, in combination with their phylogenies, supports the notion that the EMP pathway evolved in the direction of gluconeogenesis, i.e., from the bottom up.

The phylogenetic tree indicates that all bacteria investigated in this study with a maximum growth temperature above 65 degrees C form a supercluster within the subphylum of gram-positive bacteria that also contains Clostridium thermosaccharolyticum and Clostridgeium thermoaceticum, which have been previously sequenced.
