Abstract The sequence of a 281-kbp contig from the crenarchaeote Sulfolobus solfataricus P2 was determined and analysed. Notable features in this region include 29 ribosomal protein genes, 12 tRNA genes (four of which contain archaeal-type introns), operons encoding enzymes of histidine biosynthesis, pyrimidine biosynthesis, and arginine biosynthesis, an ATPase operon, numerous genes for enzymes of lipopolysaccharide biosynthesis, and six insertion sequences. The content and organization of this contig are compared with sequences from crenarchaeotes, euryarchaeotes, bacteria, and eukaryotes.
