Query: NC_009376:832000 Pyrobaculum arsenaticum DSM 13514 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Pyrobaculum arsenaticum; Pyrobaculum; Thermoproteaceae; Thermoproteales; Crenarchaeota; Archaea General Information: Pyrobaculum arsenaticum strain DSM 13514 was isolated from a hot spring at Pisciarelli Solfatara in Italy. Arsenate-reducing hyperthermophile. Pyrobaculum arsenaticum is able to grow both chemolithoautotrophically, using hydrogen as the electron donor, to reduce arsenate, thiosulfate, or elemental sulfur, and organotrophically, using arsenate and thiosulfate as electron acceptors. Pyrobaculum arsenaticum may play an important role in the cycling of arsenic and sulfur in hyperthermal environments.

General Information: This organism was isolated from a boiling marine water hole in Maronti Beach, Ischia, Italy. It grows optimally a 100ºC and pH 7.0. Growth can occur at temperatures between 74 and 104 ºC. Nitrate-reducing hyperthermophilic archeon. This organism is a facultatively anaerobic, nitrate-reducing hyperthermophilic archaeon. It is able to grow both aerobically and anaerobically by dissimilatory nitrate reduction.
