Proteome IDiUP000000810
Taxonomy272844 - Pyrococcus abyssi (strain GE5 / Orsay)
StrainGE5 / Orsay
Last modifiedJanuary 22, 2018
Genome assembly and annotationi GCA_000195935.2 from ENA/EMBL
Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Pyrococcus furiosus pan proteome (fasta)

Anaerobic hyperthermophilic sulfur-dependent bacterium. Organisms live in geothermally heated marine sediments worldwide. This strain, the type strain, was isolated from a North Fiji basin hydrothermal deep-sea vent. It is strictly anaerobic and grows within the temperature range of 68 to 101.5 degrees C. It has a generation time of 34 min at the optimal growth temperature of 94 degrees C.
