A 1.64 kb genomic DNA sequence from the hyperthermophilic crenarchaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius is composed of two adjacent genes. The first functionally unassigned open reading frame (orf-1) comprises 450 base pairs. The second 1.1 kb large open reading frame encodes the putative signal recognition particle receptor alpha subunit (SR alpha). Both genes are expressed under the heterotrophic growth conditions of the organism. The main transcript of orf-1 appears as a monocistronic RNA in… 
Protein transport across and into cell membranes in bacteria and archaea
TLDR
The different systems employed to translocate and insert proteins across or into the cytoplasmic membrane of archaea and bacteria are described.
Protein secretion in the Archaea: multiple paths towards a unique cell surface
TLDR
The unique cell surface of archaea requires distinct solutions to the problem of how proteins cross this barrier to be either secreted into the medium or assembled as appendages at the cell surface.
Translocation of proteins across archaeal cytoplasmic membranes.
