Important advances in our understanding of the nature of enzymes and their action were made in the late 19 th and early 20 th centuries, seeding the explosive expansion from the s and 60s onward to the present billion dollar enzyme industry. Recent developments in the fields of genetic engineering and protein chemistry are bringing ever.

Enzymes have a variety of applications in several industries. They are the proteins which act as catalysts in the reactions taking place in the body. Enzymes have a great importance in Biotechnology. Enzymes are intimately involved in a wide variety of traditional food processes, such as cheese-, beer- and wine-making. However, all these desirable characteristics of enzymes and their Author: Ahmad Homaei. enzymes posses the catalytic power to facilitate life processes in essentially all life-forms from viruses to man. Most of the enzymes retain their catalytic potential even after extraction from the living organism. The above catalytic power of enzyme leads to commercial usage of Size: KB.   Enzymes help speed up chemical reactions in the body. They affect every function, from breathing to digestion. Lipases, for example, help digest fat. Enzymes .

Reviewing our latest understanding of the nature of enzymes and their role in drug discovery, this book is recommended for researchers in pharmaceuticals and biotechnology as well as for researchers in enzymology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and medicinal chemistry.   Enzymes function as highly selective catalysis in such a way that they selectivity catalyze specific reactions (reaction specificity) and specific materials (substrate specificity).Technology for utilizing enzymes for the improvement of our life is a key feature of biotechnology. Enzyme Biotechnology and Textiles: Enzymes are used to treat and modify fibres, particularly during textile processing and in caring for textiles afterwards. For example, enzymes called catalases are used to treat cotton fibres and prepare them for the dyeing processes. Some bacterial enzymes are used to separate the tough stem of the flax. This book offers an overview of the diverse fields application of proteases (also termed proteolytic enzymes or proteinases), including food science and technology, pharmaceutical industries, and detergent manufacturing, reviewing the advances in the biotechnological application plant proteolytic enzymes over the last decade.
