In this work, we characterized α-amylase synthesized from bacteria and their prospectives of using it as an anti-biofilm agent. Numerous infectious diseases are connected with microbial biofilms. They are also antibiotic-resistant because of their structure. Enzymes, especially α-amylase produced by Bacillus sp. using submerged fermentation, are effective methods of biofilm disruption due to their biodegradation.
