File Name: industrial enzymes and their applications .zip
Enzymes are very useful catalysts in many different industrial processes because they perform very specifically, at a particular processing step in the manufacture of a product. The enzymes used in industrial processes also originate from nature, and therefore can be used in the same way as nature does. They help to provide environmental friendly products to consumers, which are manufactured using less energy, water and raw materials — and generating less waste. Enzymes are used to make and improve nearly everyday consumer and commercial products. They are used in foods and beverages processing, animal nutrition, textiles, household cleaning and fuel for cars and energy generation.

Enzyme Technology pp Cite as. Enzymes are special proteins, which catalyze chemical reactions with great specificity and rate enhancements. First half of the last century saw a rapid development in enzyme chemistry. Commercial exploitation of microbial enzymes began much before their nature and properties were worked out. For centuries, extracts of plants had been used to bring about hydrolysis of polymeric materials. However, these sources of enzymes were unreliable and expensive too, hence search for alternative sources began.
The biosynthesis of amylase and collagenase, produced by A. Using a wheat bran substrate, the amylase enzyme displayed enzymatic activity of 0. The apparent Km and Vmax were 3. The production of collagenase by A. For amylase, the best results were obtained from immobilization in loofa sponge and the use of ultrafiltration 0. Therefore, Alicyclobacillus are capable of producing enzymes of industrial interest, with the possibility of economically viable application of the substrate, and the use of immobilization and ultrafiltration produced positive results. The Alicyclobacillus genus comprises thermoacidophilic and heterotrophic bacteria.
Peter K. Robinson; Enzymes: principles and biotechnological applications. Essays Biochem 15 November ; 59 1— Enzymes are biological catalysts also known as biocatalysts that speed up biochemical reactions in living organisms, and which can be extracted from cells and then used to catalyse a wide range of commercially important processes. This chapter covers the basic principles of enzymology, such as classification, structure, kinetics and inhibition, and also provides an overview of industrial applications. In addition, techniques for the purification of enzymes are discussed. Enzymes are biological catalysts also known as biocatalysts that speed up biochemical reactions in living organisms.
