Research output: Patent


An isolated nucleic acid from the bacterium Thermotoga neapolitana, encoding a thermostable .alpha.-galactosidase is provided. The Thermotoga gene is cloned into a high expression vector to provide large quantities of a purified thermostable .alpha.-galactosidase. The thermostable enzyme is used in high-temperature processing of soy products to remove .alpha.-galactosides.
