The Geochemistry, Ecology and Taxonomy of Antarctic Methanogenic Bacteria
Entry ID: ASAC_264

Abstract: The Antarctic methanogen Methanococcoides burtonii contained only diether phospholipids. These membrane components were analysed by gas chromatography and gas chromatography mass spectrometry. Of particular interest was the occurrence of unsaturated diether lipids in M. burtonii; unsaturated ether lipids accounted for 57% of the diether phospholipids. To our knowledge, unsaturated ether lipids ... View entire text
