Abstract
A beta-lactamase was purified from a thermophilic Bacillus strain, that had been isolated from a traditional hot bath in the Meknes area (Morocco). The properties of the enzyme were very similar to those of the p-lactamase produced by Bacillus licheniformis 749C but it exhibited a somewhat increased thermostability and a higher activation energy with cefazolin as substrate. These properties were expected for an enzyme produced by a thermophilic strain.
