Amylase and 16S rRNA genes from a hyperthermophilic archaebacterium

Jones, Russell C; Jermiin, Lars; Easteal, Simon; Patel, B K; Beacham, I R


A hyperthermophilic and amylolytic prokaryote, designated Rt3, was isolated from a thermal spring near Rotorua, New Zealand. The 16S rRNA gene of Rt3 was cloned and sequenced with the aim of determining its phylogenetic affiliations. The phylogenetic analysis of this sequence, which included a selection of archaebacterial and eubacterial 16S rRNA sequences, indicates that Rt3 most likely belongs to the archaebacterial order Thermococcales. An amylase gene (amyA) from Rt3, encoding a highly...[Show more]
