Amylomaltase of Pyrobaculum aerophilum IM2 produces thermoreversible starch gels.


Amylomaltases are 4-alpha-glucanotransferases (EC of glycoside hydrolase family 77 that transfer alpha-1,4-linked glucans to another acceptor, which can be the 4-OH group of an alpha-1,4-linked glucan or glucose. The amylomaltase-encoding gene (PAE1209) from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrobaculum aerophilum IM2 was cloned and expressed in… (More)
