A new enzyme showing a dehydrogenase activity towards aromatic aldehydes was isolated, purified and characterized from a halophilic strain isolated from saline environment. The enzyme is a monomer of 54 kDa; it is rather thermostable (optimal temperature: 50°C) showing a broad spectrum of activity in a large pH range with the maximum at pH 9.5. The substrate specificity and the effect of ions were evaluated and compared with analogous described proteins.
