Abstract

The hyperthermophilic archaeon, Pyrococcus (strain IFREMER AL585), contains an ORF that encodes a polypeptide with a high similarity to the Escherichia coli dinF (DNA damage-inducible) gene product. The conservation of this protein between Archaea and Bacteria suggests that a SOS repair system might operate in Archaea.
