General Information: This organism was isolated from a hydrothermal vent at Okinawa Trough in the Pacific Ocean at a depth of 1395 m. This organism is an obligate anaerobic, hyperthermophilic archaeon. Growth occurs at 80-102 degrees C with optimal growth at 98 degrees C and a pH of 7.0. Presence of elemental sulfur has been found to greatly stimulate growth.
