Isolation, characterization, and identification of Geobacillus thermodenitrificans HRO10, an alpha-amylase and alpha-glucosidase producing thermophile.


Thermophilic and amylolytic aerobic bacteria were isolated from soil through a selective enrichment procedure at 60 degrees C with starch as the carbon source. One of the isolates designated as HRO10 produced glucose aside from limit dextrin as the only hydrolysis product from starch and was characterized in detail. The starch-degrading enzymes produced by… (More)
