Thermostable enzymes are required for application in a wide range of harsh industrial processes. High stability and activity at elevated temperatures, as well as high tolerances toward various reagents and solvents, are needed. In this work, a glycoside hydrolase family 1 β-glucosidase (Bgl1) of archaeal origin was isolated from a hydrothermal spring metagenome. The enzyme showed a broad substrate spectrum with activity toward cellobiose, cellotriose and lactose. Compared to most enzymes… CONTINUE READING
