From 42 different hot springs in 6 provinces belonging to distinct geographical regions of Turkey, 451 thermophilic bacilli were isolated and 67 isolates with a high amylase activity were selected to determine the alpha-glucosidase production capacities by using pNPG as a substrate. Alpha-glucosidase production capacities of the isolates varied within the range from 77.18 to 0.001 U/g. Eleven of our thermophilic bacilli produced alpha-glucosidase at significant levels comparable with that of… CONTINUE READING
