Names Archaeoglobus profundus DSM 5631
Accession numbers NC_013741, NC_013742
Background Archaeoglobus profundus (strain DSM 5631 / JCM 9629 / NBRC 100127 / Av18) is a hyperthermophilic archaeon isolated from a deep sea hydrothermal vent in the Guaymas Basin in the Gulf of California. It grows organoheterotrophically using a variety of carbon and energy sources, but can also grow lithoautotrophically on hydrogen, thiosulphate and carbon dioxide. A. profundus is a chemolithoautotrophic or chemoorganotrophic microorganism using sulfate, sulfite or thiosulfate as electron receptor, with the formation of hydrogen sulfide as the end product. A. profundus thrives at 85 degrees Celsius the optimal temperature for growth. (HAMAP: ARCPA)
