Internet)||Abstract:||Chitinases are ubiquitous class of extracellu-lar enzymes, which have gained attention in the past few years due to their wide biotechnological applications. The effectiveness of conventional insecticides is increasingly compromised by the occurrence of resistance; thus, chi-tinase offers a potential alternative to the use of chemical fungicides. The thermostable enzymes from thermophilic microorganisms have numerous industrial, medical, envi-ronmental and biotechnological applications due to their high stability for temperature and pH. Thermomyces lanug-inosus produced a large number of chitinases, of which chi-tinase I and II are successfully cloned and purified recently. Molecular dynamic simulations revealed that the stability of these enzymes are maintained even at higher tempera-ture. In this review article we have focused on chitinases from different sources, mainly fungal chitinase of T. lanug-inosus and its industrial application.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10321/2516||ISSN:||1431-0651 (print)
