Proteases play essential role in diverse physiological, metabolic and regulatory processes in all living organisms. Proteolytic enzymes are also the most dominant sector of the industrial enzyme market. Filamentous fungi have found applications in many industries and represent an important source of proteases. Diverse fungal proteases are widely applied in food and pharmaceutical industries. They are also of great interest for their applications in leather and fabric processing, waste management, and detergent industry. This article will review the current knowledge on proteases from filamentous fungi, their classification and potential industrial applications.
