Plasmids and viruses of the thermoacidophilic crenarchaeote Sulfolobus

  title={Plasmids and viruses of the thermoacidophilic crenarchaeote Sulfolobus},
  author={Georg Lipps},
The crenarchaeote Sulfolobus spp. is a host for a remarkably large spectrum of viruses and plasmids. The genetic elements characterized so far indicate a large degree of novelty in terms of morphology (viruses) and in terms of genome content (plasmids and viruses). The viruses and conjugative plasmids encode a great number of conserved proteins of unknown function due to the lack of sequence similarity to functionally characterized proteins. These apparently essential proteins remain to be… CONTINUE READING
