Production of two extracellular alkaline phosphatases by a psychrophilic arthrobacter strain.

We surveyed our collection of psychrophilic bacteria to determine the types of phosphatases they produce and whether any had heat-labile activities with potential applications. Assays at different temperatures showed that the activity from one isolate was optimal at 45(deg)C and decreased dramatically above 55(deg)C. This isolate, D10, had the rod-coccus… CONTINUE READING
