Psychrophiles are cold-adapted organisms that produce enzymes that display a high catalytic efficiency at low temperatures. In recent years, these low-temperature working enzymes have attracted the attention of scientists because of their peculiar properties that render them particularly useful in investigating the relationship between enzyme stability and flexibility. Recently, a new esterase was identified and isolated from the cold-adapted organism Pseudoalteromonas haloplanktis. The enzyme… CONTINUE READING
