Huber, Robert and Langworthy, Thomas A. and König, H. and Thomm, Michael and Woese, Carl R. and Sleytr, W. and Stetter, Karl Otto (1986) Thermotoga maritima sp. nov. represents a new genus of unique extremely thermophilic eubacteria growing up to 90°C. Archives of Microbiology = Arch. Microbiol. 144, pp. 324-333.
A novel type of bacterium has been isolated from various geothermally heated locales on the sea floor. The organisms are strictly anaerobic, rod-shaped, fermentative, extremely thermophilic and grow between 55 and 90° C with an optimum of around 80° C. Cells show a unique sheathlike structure and monotrichous flagellation. By 16S rRNA sequencing they clearly belong to the eubacteria, ...
