Enzyme Technology - An Emerging Trend in Biotechnology

Khan NT

Enzymes are biological molecules with a definite structural organization that influence their catalytic function. Currently enzymes are being employed in industrial biotechnology for numerous purposes for the production of novel and sustainable products at a speedy rate. Enzyme technology encompasses modification of enzyme structure or its catalytic function to yield novel metabolites or to take part in new reaction pathways. This technology enables the commercial synthesis of numerous enzymes with diverse applications in food processing and preservation, detergents, textile industry, leather industry, paper industry, medicine etc.
