The interaction of Nanoarchaeum equitans with Ignicoccus hospitalis: proteins in the contact site between two cells

Burghardt, Tillmann ; Junglas, Benjamin ; Siedler, Frank ; Wirth, Reinhard ; Huber, Harald ; Rachel, Reinhard


The two archaea Ignicoccus hospitalis and Nanoarchaeum equitans form a unique intimate association, the character of which is not yet fully understood. Electron microscopic investigations show that at least two modes of cell-cell interactions exist: (i) the two cells are interconnected via thin fibres; and (ii) the two cell surfaces are in direct contact with each other. In order to shed further ...
