Abstract: Enzymes or biocatalysts are produced in the human body from amino acids that the body obtains by digesting food proteins. Enzymes accelerate and control all biochemical processes in the body and in a single second several millions of enzyme mediated chemical reactions occur in a human body. Each enzyme is programmed to carry out one special task. The immense number of enzymes acts as a perfectly matched orchestra to ensure that enormously complex life mechanisms and processes occur in a right direction. Sufficient amount and optimal function of enzymes present in the human body is essential Cor life and health. Microbial enzymes play a major role in the diagnosis, curing, biochemical investigation and monitoring of many dreaded diseases of the century. Information on this topic is very meagre and thus the present review is an attempt to compile information on the sources, properties and applications of important therapeutic enzymes.
