Archaeoglobus veneficus SNP6

Names Archaeoglobus veneficus SNP6
Accession numbers NC_015320
Background Archaeoglobus veneficus (strain DSM 11195 / SNP6) is an anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic, hyperthermophilic archaeum isolated from the walls of active black smokers at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (depth 3500 meters). It grows at temperatures between 65 and 85 degrees Celsius, with an optimum between 75 to 80 degrees Celsius at atmospheric pressure. Molecular hydrogen serves as electron donor during chemolithoautotrophic growth and H2S is formed from sulfite or thiosulfate. Alternatively, organic acids, glucose, or ethanol can be used as electron donors, but sulfate, nitrate, or nitrite can not serve as electron acceptors and elemental sulfur inhibits growth. A.veneficus shows a blue-green fluorescence at 436 nm and produced small amounts of methane. (Adapted from: (HAMAP: ARCVS)
