The Embden-Meyerhof (EM) or Entner-Doudoroff (ED) pathways of sugar degradation were analyzed in representative species of the hyperthermophilic archaeal genera Thermococcus, Desulfurococcus, Thermoproteus, and Sulfolobus, and in the hyperthermophilic (eu)bacterial genus Thermotoga. The analyses included (1) determination of 13C-labeling patterns by 1H- and 13C-NMR spectroscopy of fermentation products derived from pyruvate after fermentation of specifically 13C-labeled glucose by cell… Expand
Molecular and biochemical characterization of bifunctional pyruvate decarboxylases and pyruvate ferredoxin oxidoreductases from Thermotoga maritima and Thermotoga hypogea.
TLDR
The close relatedness of the PORs that was shown by sequence analysis could be an indication of the presence of such bifunctionality in other hyperthermophilic bacteria. Expand
The thermophilic biomass-degrading bacterium Caldicellulosiruptor bescii utilizes two enzymes to oxidize glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate during glycolysis
TLDR
Using metabolomics and kinetic analyses, it is shown that GOR functions in parallel with the conventional GAP dehydrogenase, providing an alternative ferredoxin-dependent glycolytic pathway and likely facilitates the recycling of reduced redox carriers (NADH and ferredox) in response to environmental H2 concentrations. Expand
Hydrogen production by the hyperthermophilic bacterium Thermotoga maritima part I: effects of sulfured nutriments, with thiosulfate as model, on hydrogen production and growth
TLDR
The stimulant effects of thiosulfate at very low concentrations on T. maritima growth have forced us to reconsider its role in this species and more probably also in all thiosolfato-reducer hyperthermophiles and to improve the hydrogen production in bio-processes using Thermotoga species, it should be recommended to incorporate thios sulfurate in the culture medium.

Carbohydrate Metabolism in Archaea: Current Insights into Unusual Enzymes and Pathways and Their Regulation
TLDR
The aim of this review is to present the current understanding of central carbohydrate metabolic pathways and their regulation in Archaea as well as an overview focusing on hexose metabolic pathways identified in archaeal model organisms. Expand
The substrate of the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase of Pseudomonas aeruginosa provides structural stability.
TLDR
The results and a phylogenetic analysis of the amino acid sequences of forty-four G6PDHs suggest that the stabilization observed for PaG 6PDH could be a characteristic that distinguishes this and other G6 PDHs that use NAD+ and NADP+ from those that use NadP+ only or preferentially, such as those found in eukaryotes.

Comparative kinetic modeling of growth and molecular hydrogen overproduction by engineered strains of Thermotoga maritima
Abstract Thermotoga maritima is an anaerobic hyperthermophilic bacterium known for its high amounts of hydrogen (H2) production. In the current study, the kinetic modeling was applied on theExpand
Profiling of glucose-induced transcription in Sulfolobus acidocaldarius DSM 639
Sulfolobus species can grow on a variety of organic compounds as carbon and energy sources. These species degrade glucose to pyruvate by the modified branched Entner–Doudoroff pathway. We attemptedExpand
Uncoupling Fermentative Synthesis of Molecular Hydrogen from Biomass Formation in Thermotoga maritima
TLDR
Cell lines of the extremophile Thermotoga maritima are described that exceed the physiologic limits for H2 formation arising from genetic changes in fermentative metabolism, indicating that a reduced rate of maltose uptake was accompanied by an increase in H2 production, changing fermentation efficiency and shifting energy management.

Members of the Order Thermotogales: From Microbiology to Hydrogen Production
TLDR
The ecology, phylogeny and metabolism linked to hydrogen production of these bacteria, are reviewed and members of the deep-branching order Thermotogales are recognized as high hydrogen producers having possible applications in biotechnology. Expand

Evidence for the operation of a novel Embden-Meyerhof pathway that involves ADP-dependent kinases during sugar fermentation by Pyrococcus furiosus.
TLDR
The main pathway for the fermentation of maltose or cellobiose by the hyperthermophile Pyrococcus furiosus was investigated by in vivo NMR and by enzyme measurements, and the first descriptions of ADP-dependent (AMP-forming) kinases to date are described. Expand
Gluconeogenesis from pyruvate in the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus: involvement of reactions of the Embden-Meyerhof pathway
The hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus was grown on pyruvate as carbon and energy source. The enzymes involved in gluconeogenesis were investigated. The following findings indicate thatExpand
Maltose fermentation to acetate, CO2 and H2 in the anaerobic hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus: evidence for the operation of a novel sugar fermentation pathway
TLDR
This novel pathway of maltose fermentation to acetate, CO2 and H2 in the anaerobic archaeon P. furiosus may represent a phylogenetically ancient pathway of sugar fermentation. Expand
Glucose catabolism of the hyperthermophilic archaeum Thermoproteus tenax
TLDR
Pulse labelling experiments and enzyme studies show that Thermoproteus tenax is able to degrade glucose via the Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas (EMP) pathway, indicating that under chemoorganotrophic conditions at least 2 glycolytic pathways are operative in T. tenax. Expand
Acetyl-CoA synthetase (ADP forming) in archaea, a novel enzyme involved in acetate formation and ATP synthesis
TLDR
Data indicate that acetyl-CoA synthetase (ADP forming) represents a typical archaeal property rather than an enzyme specific for hyperthermophiles, whereas in all acetate forming (eu)bacteria these reactions are catalyzed by two enzymes, phosphate acetyltransferase and acetate kinase. Expand
Glucose metabolism in the extreme thermoacidophilic archaebacterium Sulfolobus solfataricus.
TLDR
The oxidative breakdown of glucose to pyruvate occurring in S. solfataricus differs from the Entner-Doudoroff pattern in that there is an absence of any phosphorylation step. Expand

TLDR
The glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase from the hyperthermophilic archaebacterium Pyrococcus woesei was purified to homogeneity and exhibited a strikingly high proportion of aromatic amino acid residues and a low proportion of sulfur-containing residues. Expand
Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate Ferredoxin Oxidoreductase, a Novel Tungsten-containing Enzyme with a Potential Glycolytic Role in the Hyperthermophilic Archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus(*)
TLDR
It is proposed that GAPOR has a glycolytic role and functions in place of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase and possibly phosphoglycerate kinase. Expand
Formation of l-alanine as a reduced end product in carbohydrate fermentation by the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus
The hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus was found to form substantial amounts of l-alanine during batch growth on either cellobiose, maltose or pyruvate. Acetate, CO2 and H2 were producedExpand
Chapter 1 Central metabolism of the archaea
TLDR
The enzyme appears not to be a part of any multi-enzyme system in the halophiles, but purification and subsequent characterization showed it to be very similar to its eubacterial and eukaryotic counterpart in both its dimeric nature and its catalytic mechanism. Expand
