Purification and characterization of a novel amylopullulanase that converts pullulan to glucose, maltose, and maltotriose and starch to glucose and maltose
Abstract A thermophilic strain, L14, isolated from Iranian hot springs, produces an extracellular pullulanase upon growth on optimized liquid medium. According to 16S rDNA analysis and biochemicalExpand
