The Japan Academy: Tadayuki Imanaka's "Molecular Bases of Thermophily in Hyperthermophiles"

Read this page for an example of characteristic archaeal metabolic adaptations. Thermophile species are present in all four Archaea taxa (Korarcheotes, Euryarcheotes, Crenarcheotes, and Nanoarcheotes). In general, Archaea shares characteristics both with Eukarya (e.g. the initiator tRNA and introns) and with Bacteria (e.g. 70S ribosomes), but Archaea have unique molecular features as well (e.g. cell wall structure and branched membrane lipid hydrocarbones).
