The mutation had dramatic effect on the kinetic and thermodynamic parameters inferring thermostability of endo-glucanase from Cellulomonas biazotea mutant 51 SMr .The denaturation activation energies of native and mutated enzymes were 73.3 and 68.8 kJ / mol respectively. They showed compensation effect at 55°C. Both enthalpy and entropy values of irreversible thermal inactivation for mutated enzyme were decreased suggesting that the mutation partly stabilized the enzyme.

Keywords: cellulomonas biazotea, derepressed mutant, endo-glucanase enthalpy, enzyme kinetics, melting point, thermodynamics
