Deoxyribonucleic acids (DNAs) from the type strains of Thermoplasma acidophilum (strain 122-1B2) and Sulfolobus acidocaldarius (strain 98–3) are compared. The guanine-plus-cytosine contents of the DNAs are 45.0 and 39.9 mol%, respectively. DNA-DNA hybridization experiments show homologies slightly above the background level of 0.1% in the experiment.
