Minuth, T. ; Frey, G. ; Lindner, P. ; Rachel, Reinhard ; Stetter, Karl Otto ; Jaenicke, R.


The archaeon Pyrodictium occultum is one of the most thermophilic organisms presently known. Previous experiments provided support for the significant contribution of a high-molecular-mass protein complex to the extreme thermotolerance of P. occultum. This protein complex, the 'thermosome', is composed of two subunits, alpha and beta, which form a hexadecameric double ring complex. In order to ...
