Low molecular weight thermostable β-D-glucosidase from Acidothermus cellulolyticus

Abstract

Industrial use of cellulase enzymes, including β-D-glucosidases, can be greatly improved and expanded by the discovery and characterization of more robust, thermotolerant enzymes. A new thermostable β-D-glucosidase was isolated from Acidothermus cellulolyticus culture broth. This enzyme has a molecular weight of 52.5 kDa, an isoelectric pI of 4.1, and a pH… (More)
