The exploration of thermophilic and hyperthermophilic microorganisms to utilize their enzymatic system has been done by the research scientist from middle age era. Such examinations are currently a day acing the cloning and mechanical abuse of a wide assortment of qualities encoding chemicals like thermophilic cellulases, amylases, xylanases, polymerases, galactosidases and proteinases etc. A number of thermophilic microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, archaebacteria and actinomycetes known to producing thermophilic enzyme. These enzymes have some structural specificity to show optimum activity in thermophilic environment. Use of thermophilic enzymes is beneficial than using mesophilic enzymes during industrial processes because some of these processes are occur at high temperature. Thermophilic enzymes have wide range of applications in different industries like paper and pulp industry, biofuel industry, textile industry and food industry. To make easy production of these enzymes, genes for thermophilic enzymes have been cloned in mesophilic host. In this text, we review the function of various thermophilic enzymes in different industrial methods from hyperthermophilic and extreme thermophilic microorganisms, the industrial application of thermophilic enzymes are mainly discussed.
