19.1 Phylogenetic and Metabolic Diversity of Archaea  Archaea

19.1 Phylogenetic and Metabolic Diversity of Archaea Archaea share many characteristics with both Bacteria and Eukarya Archaea are split into two major groups (Figure 19.1) Crenarchaeota Euryarchaeota 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. 19.1 Phylogenetic and Metabolic Diversity

of Archaea Bioenergetics and intermediary metabolism of Archaea are similar to those found in Bacteria Except some Archaea use methanogenesis Autotrophy via several different pathways is widespread in Archaea 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 19.1 Marine Euryarchaeota

Haloarchaea Key genera: Halobacterium, Haloferax, Natronobacterium Extremely halophilic Archaea Have a requirement for high salt concentrations Typically require at least 1.5 M (~9%) NaCl for growth Found in artificial saline habitats (e.g., salted foods), solar salt evaporation ponds, and salt lakes (Figure 19.2)

Reproduce by binary fission Do not form resting stages or spores Most are nonmotile Most are obligate aerobes Possess adaptations to life in highly ionic environments Cell wall is composed of glycoprotein and stabilized by Na+ (Figure 19.3) 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

19.2 Extremely Halophilic Archaea Water Balance in Extreme Halophiles Halophiles need to maintain osmotic balance This is usually achieved by accumulation or synthesis of compatible solutes Halobacterium species instead pump large amounts of K+ into the cell from the environment Intracellular K+ concentration exceeds extracellular Na+ concentration and positive water balance is maintained

2012 Pearson Education, Inc. 19.2 Extremely Halophilic Archaea Proteins of halophiles Are highly acidic Contain fewer hydrophobic amino acids and lysine residues 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. 19.2 Extremely Halophilic Archaea

Some haloarchaea are capable of light-driven synthesis of ATP (Figure 19.4) Bacteriorhodopsin Cytoplasmic membrane proteins that can absorb light energy and pump protons across the membrane Animation: Bacteriorhodopsin and Light Mediated ATP Synthesis 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 19.4

19.3 Methanogenic Archaea Methanogens (Figure 19.5) Key genera: Methanobacterium, Methanocaldococcus, Methanosarcina Microbes that produce CH4 Found in many diverse environments Taxonomy based on phenotypic and phylogenetic features Process of methanogenesis first demonstrated over 200 years ago by Alessandro Volta
