Various nutrients belonging to three categories, carbon, organic nitrogen and complex organic sources, were investigated for the first time in terms of their effect on the co-production of extracellular thermostable alpha-amylase and beta-galactosidase by Bacillus subtilis, a bacterium isolated from fresh sheep's milk. Among the organic nitrogen sources(More)
A hyperthermophilic alpha-amylase encoding gene from Pyrococcus woesei was transferred and expressed in Xanthomonas campestris ATCC 13951. The heterologous alpha-amylase activity was detected in the intracellular fraction of X. campestris and presented similar thermostability and catalytic properties with the native P. woesei enzyme. The recombinant(More)
Purpose: This study is the first to examine the effect of extreme weather on mortality in Cyprus. It aims to investigate the individual effect of meteorological indicators on mortality, as well as the role of air pollution as a potential confounder of heat related health effects. Methods: The analysis concentrated on the warm periods (April to September) of(More)
