Abstract

The review deals with phytase-producing microorganisms along with optimum conditions for its production. Various methods used for purifying phytases and their characteristics are discussed. Heterologous gene expression, cost-effective large-scale phytase production, and various biotechnological applications of the enzyme in animal feed and food industries are also discussed.
