BIO PROSPECTING THERMOSTABLE ENZYMES-PRODUCING THERMOPHILES FROM INDONESIAAlmando Geraldi, Aken Puti Wanguyun and Sucipto Hariyanto
Thermostable enzymes-producing thermophilic microorganisms have been of industrial interest due to their ability to work optimally in high temperature which ensures high reaction efficiency and productivity,as well as reduces contamination risks. Efforts on isolating thermophilic microorganism with industrial potential have long been conducted in Indonesia, where there is large number of hot springs and geothermal area. Bacterial strains with the ability to produce thermostable industrial enzymes such as amylases, chitinase,lipase, protease, and xylanase have been isolated from various regions in Indonesia. This review is the first endeavor to collectively look into the researches on thermophilic microorganisms with industrial potential in Indonesia, their outcomes and proposed future directions based on the limitation of current studies.
