A spherical thermoacidophilic archaeon, strain TA-2, was obtained from acidic hot springs located in Ohwaku Valley, Hakone, Japan. This isolate is an obligate aerobic chemoorganoheterotroph that grows optimally at about 75°C, pH 2.8. The G+C content of DNA from TA-2 is 47 mol%. The 16S rRNA gene from TA-2 showed more than 99% similarity with those of(More)
