Enzymes that are found naturally in thermophilic and hyperthermophilic organisms are being used as robust biocatalysts in the fine-chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Knowledge of their biochemical properties and three-dimeasional structures has proved invaluable in understanding their mechanism and in optimizing their commercial use.
