A cryptic plasmid pHIG22 from Therms scotoductus sp. K6, an isolate from the Alangullu Hot Spring (Aydin, Turkey), was sequenced and characterized. The pHIG22 plasmid is a multicopy, double stranded and 2222 bp circular molecule with 62.78% GC content, which shows a characteristical nucleotide sequence without any homology to other known plasmids.
