General Information: This strain was isolated from a shallow marine solfataric (volcanic area that gives off sulfuric gases) region at Vulcano Island, Italy. This organism is a strictly anaerobic, hyperthermophilic archaeon. Growth occurs at temperatures between 67 and 103 degrees C, with optimal growth at 100 degrees C and a pH of 7.0. This organism is highly motile due to a bundle of flagella.
