The sequence of a 281-kbp contig from the crenarchaeote Sulfolobus solfataricus P2 was determined and analysed. Notable features in this region include 29 ribosomal protein genes, 12 tRNA genes (four of which contain archaeal-type introns), operons encoding enzymes of histidine biosynthesis, pyrimidine biosynthesis, and arginine biosynthesis, an ATPase operon, numerous genes for enzymes of lipopolysaccharide biosynthesis, and six insertion sequences. The content and organization of this contig…

TLDR
The results illustrate major differences between crenarchaea and euryarchaea, especially for their DNA replication mechanism and cell cycle processes and their translational apparatus.
Prediction of the archaeal exosome and its connections with the proteasome and the translation and transcription machineries by a comparative-genomic approach.
TLDR
It is suggested that in archaea, a tight functional coupling exists between translation, RNA processing and degradation, (apparently mediated by the predicted exosome) and protein degradation (mediated by the proteasome), and may have implications for cross-talk between these processes in eukaryotes.
Molecular biology of extremophiles: recent progress on the hyperthermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus
TLDR
Recent insights in the molecular biology of thermoacidophilic Archaea of the genus Sulfolobus, which has been used as a model system for biochemical, structural, and genetic studies in Archaea and extremophiles in general are reviewed.
Mutations and Rearrangements in the Genome of Sulfolobus solfataricus P2
TLDR
Evidence was found for two major changes that had occurred in the genome of strain P2, one constituting a single deletion of about 4% of the total genome (124 kb), while the other involved the inversion of a 25-kb region.
UPF201 Archaeal Specific Family Members Reveal Structural Similarity to RNA-Binding Proteins but Low Likelihood for RNA-Binding Function
TLDR
Structural-based sequence alignments enabled construction of a phylogenetic tree relating UPF0201 family members to L5 ribosomal proteins and other structurally similar RNA binding proteins, thereby expanding the understanding of the evolutionary purview of the RRM superfamily.
Entwicklung eines Sulfolobus-E. coli Shuttle-Vektors basierend auf dem Plasmid pRN1
A restriction endonuclease activity from Sulfolobus islandicus REN2H1 was purified by phosphocellulose and cation exchange chromatography. The enzyme cuts DNA at the recognition site GCwGC as could
Decoding the genomic tree of life
TLDR
A new method of phylogenetic reconstruction based on gene presence and absence, called conditioned reconstruction, has improved the prospects for reconstructing prokaryotic evolution and is able to detect past genome fusions, such as the fusion that appears to have created the first eukaryote.
Mutation and reversion frequencies of different Sulfolobus species and strains
TLDR
The apparent and actual spontaneous mutation frequencies and rates for different species and strains of the thermoacidophilic crenarchaeote Sulfolobus have been determined and the proportion of mutations caused by insertion sequences has been analyzed.
