Thermostable 3D protein Structure?

	Proteins that are stable and can fuction at temperatures
 exceeding 100 degress Celcius have been reported in the 
hyperthermophiles.  My understanding of protein chemistry is
that this excessive heat would denature any secondary, 
tertiary or quaternary structure.  If this is so, 
then how does one reason for enzyme active sites under the 3D lock and 
key hypothesis?
	In addition, if anyone is interested in a lab technician with 
recombinant DNA experience, please E-mail or write.
