Three spherical thermoacidophilic archaea (strains TA-1T, TA-13, TA-14) were obtained from acidic hot springs located in Ohwaku Valley, Hakone, Japan. All the isolates are facultatively anaerobic, and grew optimally at around 85 degrees C, pH 2.0. Isolate TA-1T was characterized further. The G + C content of DNA from TA-1T is 33 mol%. Although these properties resemble those of the genus Acidianus, the sequence of the 16S rRNA gene from strain TA-1T was more similar to that of species of… CONTINUE READING
