Purification and characterization of the alcohol dehydrogenase from a novel strain of Bacillus stearothermophilus growing at 70 degrees C.


The biocatalysts isolated from thermophilic microorganisms are the object of ever-growing scientific interest for (i) the comprehension of the molecular basis of their thermal tolerance, and (ii) their use in different bio-industrial fields. Here we report the purification and characterization of an alcohol dehydrogenase (designated ADH-hT) from the novel… (More)
