An acid a-amylase hyperproducing strain, designated as . was isolated in a screening procedure from South American soil samples. MIR-61, a 60 "C thermoresistant stmin, was identified using 98 biochemical and morphological tests and characterized as Bacillus lichenifarmis by numerical taxonomy. Batch cultures of B. lichenifornu's MIR-61 showed extracellular a-amylase and a-glucosidase activities during the exponential growth phase. The production of a-amylase was studied at free and constant pH values at 37 an…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
