Low temperature environments are numerous on Earth and have been successfully colonized by cold-loving organisms termed psychrophiles. Cold-adapted microorganisms can be used as cell factories for the production of unstable compounds as well as for bioremediation of polluted cold soils and wastewaters. Furthermore, their biomolecules, mainly proteins and enzymes characterized by a high catalytic activity and pronounced heat-lability, have already found useful applications in various domains… CONTINUE READING
