Evidence that beta-Galactosidase of Sulfolobus solfataricus Is Only One of Several Activities of a Thermostable beta-d-Glycosidase.

A survey of Sulfolobus isolates showed all to contain thermostable enzyme activities hydrolyzing various glycosidic compounds. Of those not previously reported, the beta-glucosidase activity of Sulfolobus solfataricus isolate P2 was chosen for further study and found to have the same kinetics of inactivation, apparent molecular weight, and many (though not… CONTINUE READING
