Furiosus, and the bacterium Aquifex aeolicus revealed that the PIWI domain has structural similarity to RNase H (Fig. 8) (247, 295, 296, 374, 442). Mutations within the RNase H domain of human Ago 2 inactivate RISC and demonstrate that this 27 domain is responsible for the nuclease activity (242, 327). Guided by the structure of the P. furiosus enzyme (374), it has also been demonstrated that the human Ago 2 enzyme possesses the Slicer activity of RISC. The mammalian Dicer is a large protein with, among other domains, a DEAD box RNA helicase, a PAZ, and two RNase domains (Fig.

Many hyperthermophiles grow chemolithoautotrophically with inorganic energy sources using CO2 as the sole carbon source. In addition, most hyperthermophiles (Archaea and Bacteria) have deep branching points in phylogenetic dendrograms, and most have short branch lengths (Fig. 1). , 386, 419). This popular but also controversial hypothesis has excited other scientists interested in the origin of life, as it has important implications for prebiotic evolution and for the properties of the first cellular organisms; the debate about the hypothesis is heated and ongoing.

The mechanisms of persistence remain speculative, and it has been debated whether the haloarchaea were entrapped at the time of the rock salt formation or whether they invaded the salt in more recent times through the action of percolating ground water (260).
