Abstract
Reports the three-dimensional structure of the thermosome from Pyrodictium occultum by random conical tilt reconstruction from electron micrographs. The reconstruction reveals a complex consisting of two rings of eight subunits each, stacked face-to-face. The subunits are kidney-shaped and composed of at least two domains. In the centre of the thermosome is a large cavity of about 6.7 nm diameter; the opening of this cavity on each face of the complex is partially blocked by a mass which appears to be weakly connected to the eight-membered ring.
