Highly thermostable a-amylases are also obtained in hyperthermophilic and thermophilic Archaea such as Pyrococcus furiosus, Thermococcus hydrothermalis, T.profundus, Sulfolobus acidocaldarius and S.
The process is made possible by a unique microorganism called Pyrococcus furiosus, or "rushing fireball," which thrives by feeding on carbohydrates in the super-heated ocean waters near geothermal vents.
To amplify the gene encoding the NoV capsid, we set up a PCR mixture containing 2.5 [micro]L 10x native Pyrococcus furiosus (pfu) polymerase buffer (Invitrogen AB, Lidingo, Sweden), 200 [micro]M GeneAmp dNTP mix with dTTP (Applied Biosystems), 200 nM forward primer CapGI3fw (5'-GAT CTC CTG CCC GAT TAT GTA AAT GAT GAT G-3', this study), targeting the end of ORF1 and beginning of ORF2, 200 nM reverse primer CapGI3rv (5'-CAT TAT GAT CTC CTA ATT CCA AGC CTA CGA GC-3', this study), specific for the end of ORF2 and beginning of ORF3, 5 [micro]L cDNA, 2.5 U native pfu DNA polymerase (Stratagene, La Jolla, CA, USA), and 36 [micro]L RNAse-free water.
Estos microorganismos son: Thermus aquaticus (polimerasa Taq), especie perteneciente al dominio Bacteria, asi como Pyrococcus furiosus (Pfu) y Thermococcus litoralis (Vent), archaeabacterias hipertermofilas.

In our experiments, we used a mixture of DyNAzyme II DNA polymerase from Thermus brockianus (Finzymes) and Pfu DNA polymerase from Pyrococcus furiosus (Fermentas), which possesses 3' [right arrow] 5' proofreading activity.
Scientists identified a thermostable hydrolizing enzyme, b-glycosidase, from genetically modified hyperthermophilic Archea Sulfolobus solfataricus and Pyrococcus furiosus that grew in continuous fermentors.
