Thermotoga naphthophila is an anaerobic hyperthermophile. The cells are rod shaped that shows optimal growth at 90AdegC and are involved in the production of thermostable enzymes (Sabir et al., 2017).
Most of the microbes are thermopiles or hyperthermophiles and capable of withstanding and growing at a very high temperature.

* Notable groups of Archaea include thermophiles and hyperthermophiles (which can tolerate high temperatures), halophiles (which can tolerate high salt concentrations), and methanogens (which produce methane, a greenhouse gas, as part of their metabolism).
We had expected to find the molecular signs of archaea adapted to high heat (hyperthermophiles), which are well known at hydrothermal vents.
