Kingdom Archaebacteria


Archaebacteria are not f ully u nderstood
Archaebacteria are not fully understood!

  • Relatively new discovery so we don’t know too much about them

  • Classification is very difficult

  • Originally classified under Kingdom Monera with the rest of the bacteria

  • Studies showed that 50% of their genes did not resemble those of other bacteria


Characteristics of archaebacteria
Characteristics of Archaebacteria

  • Can only live in areas without oxygen

  • Extremophillic (thrive under extreme conditions)

  • Prokaryotic (very similar to bacteria)

    • Single-celled

    • No nucleus

    • No membrane bound organelles

    • Navigate using one or more flagella


Size and shape of archaebacteria
Size and Shape of Archaebacteria

  • Volume is about one-thousandth that of eukaryotes

  • Can be cocci, bacilli, or spirilla in shape


Parts of archaebacteria
Parts of Archaebacteria

  • Cell wall that lackspeptidoglycan

  • Phospholipidbilayer

    • Composed of glycerol-ether lipids, unlike bacteria

  • One or more flagella


Reproduction
Reproduction

  • Reproduce asexually via binary fission (prokaryotic)

    • Binary fission: when a single DNA molecule replicates and two identical cells are created from original cell


Ecological significance
Ecological Significance

  • World's most prolific methane producers

  • Play a big role in digestion in many organisms

  • Some are found in the gut of humans and assist in digestion

  • Forms symbiotic relationships with:

    • Giant tube worms (Riftiapachyptila)

    • Termites

    • Herbivores (like cows and horses)

  • Suspected to play a role in periodontal disease, but not proven


  • Modes of nutrition
    Modes of Nutrition

    • Archaebacteria have 4 ways of getting food:

      • Photoautotrophic- Calvin Cycle (light energy + CO2)

      • Chemoautotrophic- reverse Krebs cycle (inorganic chemicals + CO2)

      • Photoheterotrophic- use light + organic chemicals to make food

      • Chemoheterotrophic- undergo respiration, either Krebs, TCA, or Citric Acid cycle, and then ETC (organic chemicals + CO2)


    Uniqueness
    Uniqueness

    • Thermotaxis(movement toward extreme temperatures)

    • Evolution of thermotaxis due to lack of competition for survival


    Groups of archaebacteria
    Groups of Archaebacteria

    Thermoacidophiles

    (Love HEAT & ACID)

    Methanogens

    (Make METHANE)

    Halophiles

    (Love SALT)



    Characteristics of methanogens
    Characteristics of Methanogens

    • Found in oxygen-free environments

    • Produce methane gas from HO2 & CO2

    • Can live and produce in conditions other bacteria can’t survive in

    • Most are coccoid or rod-like in shape (few exhibit a plate-like shape)

    Cluster of coccoidmethanogens

    Methanobrevibacter ruminantium
    Methanobrevibacterruminantium

    • Found in the guts of rumen (like cows)

    • Turn H2into CH4 (methane)

    • Cows release this methane into the atmosphere

    • Scientists looking for a way to limit their production of methane

    Characteristics of halophiles
    Characteristics of Halophiles

    • Require salt-rich environments to survive (due to high internal salt concentration)

    • Like plants, they use sunlight as a source of photosynthetic energy

    • Get their color and chemical energy from bacteriorhodopsin (a light-sensitive pigment)

    • Most are rod-shaped (bacilli)


    Halobacterium halobium
    Halobacteriumhalobium

    • Prevalent bacteria in the Great Salt Lake

    • Can survive in salt concentrations 10x saltier than that of the oceans

    Characteristics of thermoacidophiles
    Characteristics of Thermoacidophiles

    • Can live and thrive in extremely hot,sulferic, and/or acidic environments

    • Include:

      • Thermophiles= thrive in extremely high temperatures

      • Acidophiles= pH tolerant (function at 1-5 pH)

      • Sulfolobus= thrive in sulfur-rich environments


    Desulfonauticus submarinus
    Desulfonauticussubmarinus

    • Live in giant, deep-sea tube worms called Riftiapachyptila

    • Share a symbiotic relationship with the tube worms

    • Make food and energy for the tube worms via chemosynthesis

    Sulfolobus solfataricus
    Sulfolobussolfataricus

    • Found in sulfur-rich, acidic environments

    • Grows optimally at 80⁰C

    • Capable of living in extremely acidic circumstances (1-5 pH)
