|Gene:||treS||Accession Number: G-4681 (MetaCyc)|
Species: Thermus aquaticus
A thermostable trehalose synthase was isolated from T. aquaticus, that was stable from pH 5.5.to 9.5 and up to 80oC for 60 minutes. The yield of trehalose from maltose was independent of the substrate concentration, and was higher at lower temperatures. Maximum yield reached 82% at 30-40oC [Nishimoto96].
