Abstract

Tannase also referred to as tannin acyl hydrolase (EC 3.1.1.20), is mainly used for the bioconversion of tannic acid (hydrolysable) to nine parts of gallic acid and one molecule of sugar moiety (Lekha and Lonsane, 1997) (Fig 1). Tannase is widely present in many tannin-rich plant materials, such as myrobalan (Terminalia chebula) fruits, divi divi (Caesalpinia coriaria) pods, dhawa (Anogeissus latifolia) leaves and the bark of konnam (Cassia fistula), babul (Acacia arabica) and avarum (Cassia auriculata) trees (Lekha and Lonsane, 1997).
