INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION OF MICROBIAL PROTEASES
Sikandar ALi* and Yasmeen Ghulam Muhammad
Proteases are the proteolytic enzymes that degrade the protein molecules. Proteases are isolate from animal, plants and microbial sources. Microbial proteases are favored over the others for manufacture at wide scale because of their growth that is very fast and easiness of life for new recombinant enzyme generation with properties that is preferred. This review describe the application of microbial proteases for the various industrial utilization. The main technical industrial utilization of microbial proteases are laundry detergents, degumming of silk, leather, food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Developments in enzymology, microbial proteases are widely used to provide potentials advancement for a more biologically approachable in the different industries.
Keywords: Endopeptidase, Exopeptidase, Protease, Industry, hydrolysis.
