Isolation of a gene regulated by hydrostatic pressure in a deep-sea bacterium


BAROPHILIC bacteria inhabit the deep oceans, and the specific functional modifications and regulatory mechanisms which govern adaptation to hydrostatic pressure are beginning to be understood. For example, the rate of production of several proteins by some hydrothermal vent archaebacteria1 and the degree of saturation of membrane lipids in other deep-sea… (More)
