The gene of the previously described plasma-membrane-bound acidic pyrophosphatase (exo-PPase) and adjacent genes of the hyperthermoacidophilic crenarchaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius (DSM 639) were cloned and sequenced. The 4-kb gene cluster comprises four open reading frames (sepp, simp, sabc, and satr) encoding the pyrophosphatase, a small hydrophobic… CONTINUE READING
