Amylases are important hydrolase enzymes which have een widely used in industry. Such enzymes
hydrolyze the starch molecules into polymers composed of glucose units. Among amylases α-аmylase is in
maximum demand due to its wide range of applications. α-Amylase can be obtained from plants, animals and
microorganisms. However, α-amylase from fungal and bacterial sources has dominated application in industrial sectors. A large number of microbial α-amylase has applications in diff erent industrial processes such as food,
textile, pharmaceutical, paper, fermentation and detergent industries. The production of α-amylase has generally been carried out using submerged fermentation. This review focuses on the production of bacterial and
fungal α-amylases, their physical and chemical parameters, and the use of these enzymes in textile industry.
