The ?-amylase family is the largest family of glycoside hydrolases, transferases and isomerases, comprising in clаn GH–H. The enzymes of this family, except of ?-1,4-, ?-1,6-bonds, are able to hydrolyse ?-1,-1, ?-1,2-, ?-1,3-, ?-1,5-glycosidic bonds, contain 4 conserved aminoacid residues (Asp204, Asp206, Glu230 и Asp297) and have (?/?)8 or TIM barrel catalytic domain. The questions conserning methods of isolation and purification of ?-amylases, which include the precipitation of organic solvents and neutral salts, dialysis, ultrafiltration, gelfiltration, chromatography, electrophoresis are discussed. The current data on possibility of ?-amylases from different taxonomic groups of microorganisms, in particular, bacteria and micromycetes are given. Physicochemical properties of ?-amylases, its pH- and thermooptimum, рН- and thermostability, molecular masses, influence of metal ions and different chemical reagents are discussed in detail. It’s shown the possibility of ?-amylases usage in different branches of industry — food, detergent, paper, textile, pharmaceutical.


Кey words: microbial ?-amylases, physicochemical properties, practical usage.
