The hyperthermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus has been shown to exhibit a complex transcriptional response to UV irradiation involving 55 genes. Among the strongest UV‐induced genes was a putative pili biogenesis operon encoding a potential secretion ATPase, two pre‐pilins, a putative transmembrane protein and a protein of unknown function. Electron microscopy and image reconstruction of UV‐treated cells showed straight pili with 10 nm in diameter, variable in length, not bundled or… Expand
