CompletenessStandard

Nanoarchaeum equitans was isolated from a submarine hydrothermal system off the coast of Iceland and grows in obligatory coculture with the crenarchaeon Ignicoccus hospitalis, with which it has a unique, possibly parasitic, relationship. N.equitans has a highly reduced genome with virtually no obvious metabolic or energetic capacities. It derives energy and metabolites from its host in ways that are as yet unknown. Under laboratory conditions it has mild to moderate inhibitory effects on its host, but it has been speculated that it might provide an advantage in their natural habitat, hydrothermal vents. It shows signs of gene exchange with its host (adapted from PMID 19000309).
