ABSTRACT: The lipase from Thermomyces laguginosus (formerly Humicola laguginosa) (TLL) is a basophilic and noticeably thermostable enzyme, commercially available in both soluble and immobilized form. Although initially oriented toward the food industry, the enzyme has found applications in many different industrial areas, from biodiesel production to fine chemicals (mainly in enantio and regioselective or specific processes). This review intends to show some of the most relevant aspects of the use of this interesting enzyme. After checking the enzyme features, some of the most efficient methods of TLL immobilization will be commented. Finally, the main uses of the enzyme will be revised, with special emphasis in the modification of fats and oils, production of biodiesel, resolution of racemic mixtures, enantioselective hydrolysis of prochiral esters and regioselective process involving sugar preparations. In many instances, TLL has been compared to other lipases, the advantages or disadvantages of the enzyme will be discussed.
