The secret to longevity in tubeworms

...m needs is created by a consortium of bacteria and archaea that live in the deep sea cold sediments surrounding the seep where the worm lives. These chemoautotrophs use energy from hydrocarbons to reduce sulfate to sulfide, which L. luymesi absorbs through its unique "roots," extensions of its body that it t...

New book expands biological classifications to account for 'alien' life

...em the highest levels are three domains ?bacteria, archaea and eukarya, the last of which includes all animals. Ward's plan places those three domains within a larger dominion, which he calls "terroan" to signify Earth origins. Another dominion he calls "ribosa" because it is based on ribonucleic acid, or RN...

Ammonia-loving archaea win landslide majority

...ely measured the quantities of active bacteria and archaea in the complex mixtures of soil organisms. The int... gene was subsequently found in a marine strain of archaea that uses ammonia as its sole source of energy. Researchers examined soil samples from 12 pristine a...

Molecular DNA switch found to be the same for all life

...s at the heart of the DNA replication initiator in archaea organisms, these new findings indicate that DNA replication is an ancient event that evolved millions of years ago, prior to when Archaea, Bacteria and Eukarya split into separate domains of life. "The ability of a cell to replicate its DNA in a ...

From hot springs to rice farms, scientists reveal new insights into the secret lives of archaea

Study of protein folds offers insight into metabolic evolution

... of bacteria, animals, plants, fungi, protists and archaea the researchers analyzed. Of 776 metabolic protein folds surveyed, 16 were found to be omnipresent, and nine of those occurred in the earliest branches of the newly constructed tree. "These nine ancient folds represent architectures of fundamen...
