This review intends to give a view of the properties and uses of the lipase from Mucor javanicus (MJL) (currently Mucor circinelloides). MJL was described in 1969, its structure is still to be resolved and published. The enzyme is commercialized, but not in any immobilized form; this may have reduced its use by academic groups. This review shows the main features of the enzyme, the immobilization efforts (from mycelium bound enzymes to sophisticated immobilization protocols) and the use of the enzyme in fine chemistry and oil and fats modification. Special interest has been paid to researches where MJL has been compared to other lipases.
