Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Thermoplasma acidophilum pan proteome (fasta)

Thermoacidophilic archaeon that thrives at 59 degrees Celsius and pH 2 which was isolated from self-heating coal refuse piles and solfatara fields. Does not possess a cell wall but is delimited only by a plasma membrane. Inhabits a hot and highly acidic environment sometimes as low as pH 0.5. Adapted to scavenging nutrients from the decomposition of organisms killed by the acidity.
