I have a "dumb" question here. While looking up journal references
in the local library database, I realized there's a property I don't
know how to describe in one word. The subject is on methods of mutating
proteins and enzymes to make them more heat- and pH-tolerant. The
"heat" part was easy: "thermostability". Is there a corresponding word
related to pH? A search of "pH stability" didn't yield many matches I
could use. Similary, "acidophilic" and "acidophile" didn't produce good
results either. Any suggestions?
