The ability of extremophilic
bacteria to thrive and live in extreme environments is strictly associated with their enzymes as well as biochemical pathways.
Although many detailed studies of insect AQPs have been performed, such work on extremophilic
insects or other animals is limited.

xylanases," FEMS Microbiology Reviews, vol.
The Neanderthal origin would be related to massive extremophilic
archaeal expansion which occurred in the ice age.
Biology of extremophilic
and extremotblerant methanotrophs.
microorganisms (extremophiles) are adapted to thrive in such hostile environments.
Some topics covered include the microbial ecology of a natural extreme acidic environment, microbial succession during a heap bioleaching cycle of low-grade copper sulphides, geomicrobiology of sulfidic mine dumps, and microbial diversity and genetic response to stress conditions of extremophilic
bacteria isolated from the Escondida copper mine.
It will help spread the word about the practical applications and environmental benefits that can come from extremophilic
Expression of 17/3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenases in mesophilic and extremophilic
Regardless of the source of hydrocarbons, the notion of extremophilic
subsurface microorganisms is generally well accepted.
Researchers are pursuing recombinant expression because the growth conditions required by many extremophilic
organisms are not readily amenable to large-scale culture.
They occur primarily in tropical to temperate marine habitats, though freshwater and extremophilic
species are known.
