Enolase Data

Below is a table describing some of the sequences that were available in the databases (new family members are appearing daily as new genomes are finished) when this investigation was written. We suggest you take some of these and some new genes, but be sure you have several from each phyla.

General Information
Methanococcus jannaschii Archaebacterium; thermophile (48-94 C); strict anaerobic that lives at pressures of over 200 atmospheres; autotroph that gets its energy from hydrogen and carbon dioxide producing methane.
Pyrococcus horikoshii Archaebacterium; hyperthermophilic (optimal growth at 98 C, pH 7.0 and NaCl concentration 2.4%).
Escherichia coli Bacterium; Gram negative; rod-shaped; facultative anaerobe; common inhabitant of the gut of warm blooded animals.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeast) Unicellular eukaryote; fungus; economically important microbe because it has the ability to ferment glucose into ethanol and CO2 genetics are well known.
Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) Multicellular eukaryote; commonly known as the fruit fly; feeds on decaying plant matter. One of the best understood genetic organisms.
Homo sapiens (human) Multicellular eukaryote; mammalian primate; omnivore.
