The aim of the present study is the characterization of some thermophilic bacteria isolated from hot springs in Jazan, KSA in addition to the investigation of the optimum conditions for amylases and proteases production.
Amylases are major starch hydrolyzing enzymes (Nigam, 2013).
Various Agro industrial wastes have been utilized for the cost effective production of alpha amylase and researchers are finding great interest in using agro industrial waste as a substrate for alpha amylase production (12).
In bacteria, the genus Bacillus produces a large variety of extracellular enzymes, in which amylases are mainly considerable industrial importance (Swain et al.
The synthesized compounds were also assessed further for their interaction with digestive enzymes (a -amylase) in vitro by plate method and all the compounds showed good interaction with amylase enzyme.
The objective of the present study was to improve the amylase production from Aspergillus flavus FSS63 through the use of ultraviolet radiation (UVC) as mutagenic agent and optimisation of cultural conditions.
For example, a- amylases used in starch industry must be active and stable at low pH but in detergent industry at high pH values (Nielsen and Borchert, 2000).

The activity of produced amylases from rice bran and the commercial sample were determined and from the table below the concentration of amylases produced were 6.
The genus Aspergillus produces a huge range of extracellular enzymes of which amylases are mainly considerable for industrial significance (Murali et al.
Amylases are produced by a wide spectrum of organisms, although each source produces biochemical phenotypes that significantly differ in parameters like pH and temperature optima as well as metal ion requirements [4, 5].
The downside to many digestive enzyme supplements is that they contain specific amylases that facilitate that breakdown of dietary starches into rapidly-absorbed glucose.
