Isolation of a thermostable enzyme variant by cloning and selection in a thermophile.

Abstract

We developed a method for rapidly generating thermostable enzyme variants. Our strategy is to introduce the gene coding for a given enzyme from a mesophilic organism into a thermophile, Bacillus stearothermophilus. Variants that retain the enzymatic activity at the higher growth temperatures of the thermophile are then selected. This strategy was applied to… (More)
