Temperature Stability [┬░C]

Temperature Stability Minimum [┬░C] Temperature Stability Maximum [┬░C] Comment Organism
incubation for 1 h at 0.2 mg/ml results in 90% loss of activity, incubation for 24 h at 0.8 mg/ml results in 30% loss of activity. Inactivation is irreversible. 3 M guanidine-HCl increases the half-life of the enzyme at 90┬░C and 0.2 mg/ml 6fold. Half-life at 90┬░C and 0.2 mg/ml protein concentration increases more than 6fold in the presence of 0.4 M Na2SO4 and decreases 4fold in the presence of 0.4 M NaSCN Saccharolobus solfataricus
half-life: 15 min at 0.4 mg/ml, 30 min at 0.8 mg/ml. Temperature-dependent inactivation of the enzyme is irreversible, this process is accompanied by a progressive increase in hydrophobic surface area which leads to protein precipitation Saccharolobus solfataricus
