Abstract

SUMMARY: A series of extremely thermophilic acidophilic bacteria has been characterized as closely resembling the species except for a totally different guanosine-cytosine content in the DNA; some conceptual consequences of this situation are discussed. Both organisms also share special features, including a very characteristic type of ether lipid, with other extreme acidophilic thermophiles.
