The archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus is a strictly anaerobic heterotroph that grows optimally at 100 degrees C by the fermentation of carbohydrates. It is known to contain high concentrations of novel intracellular solutes such as beta-mannosylglycerate and di-myo-inositol 1,1'-phosphate (DIP) (L. O. Martins and H. Santos, Appl. Environ. Microbiol.(More)
Di-myo-inositol-1,1(prm1)-phosphate (DIP) is present at a significant concentration ((symbl)160 nmol/mg of protein) in the cytoplasm of the hyperthermophilic bacterium Thermotoga maritima. The concentration of DIP was independent of the pH of the growth medium or the cell growth phase but increased with increasing concentrations of NaCl in the growth(More)
