Fungal strain, Aspergillus clavatus MTCC1323 under solid state fermentation was found to produce enzymes (protease, amylase and pectinase) having potential of degrading the biofilms of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus. Maximum specific enzyme activities were found to be 10.0, 8.0, and 10.086 U/mg for protease, amylase and pectinase, respectively, after 7 days of incubation at 27°C. Biofilms’ degradation was analyzed through FTIR technique. Various proteins and… 
Bacterial Biofilm Degradation Using Extracellular Enzymes Produced by Penicillium janthinellum EU2D-21 under Submerged Fermentation
TLDR
The scanning electron microscopy, quantitation of biofilm removal assay and Crystal violet assay demonstrated that the enzyme complex detached the biofilm exo-polysaccharide matrix and bacteria from the cell surface, illustrating the feasibility and benefits of using this enzyme complex as anti-biofilm therapeutics to eradicate biofilms.
Antibiofilm Activity of Cellobiose Dehydrogenase Enzyme (CDH) Isolated from Aspergillus niger on Biofilm of Clinical Staphylococcus epidermidis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolates
TLDR
The results of this study can be concluded that the CDH enzyme had a high potential for use as an antimicrobial agent and may provide a basis for alternative therapies for the treatment of infections related to clinical biofilm producing bacteria.
A novel multi-enzyme preparation produced from Aspergillus niger using biodegradable waste: a possible option to combat heterogeneous biofilms
TLDR
The prospects of using multiple carbohydrases as an anti-biofouling agent on abiotic surfaces like equipments as well as implants/prostheses and pipelines are indicated.
Mature Biofilm Degradation by Potential Probiotics: Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans versus Lactobacillus spp.
TLDR
Remarkable lipase enzyme activities were detected from some of the potential probiotics and a supporting result using a lipase inhibitor presented corroborating evidence that lipase activity is one of the contributing factors for biofilm degradation outside of the protease which is also another possible factor for the biofilm of the other serotype of A. actinomycetemcomitans strains.
A Rational Designed PslG With Normal Biofilm Hydrolysis and Enhanced Resistance to Trypsin-Like Protease Digestion
TLDR
A PslG mutant (K286A/K433S) is generated with greatly enhanced trypsin resistance and biofilm inhibition assay shows that P slGK286 a/k433S is a better biofilm inhibitor than wild-type PSlG in clinical use where trypsine-like proteases widely exist.
Antibiofilm Activity of Cellobiose Dehydrogenase Enzyme (CDH) Isolated from Aspergillus niger on Biofilm of Clinical Staphylococcus epidermidis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolates
TLDR
This study considered the activity of cellobiose dehydrogenase enzyme (CDH) isolated from Aspergillus niger, as an antibiofilm agent, on bio-lm of clinical Staphylococcus epidermidis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates and concluded that this enzyme had a high potential for eliminating bacterial bio-Lm producing bacteria.
Biofilms in Antimicrobial Activity and Drug Resistance
TLDR
Insight is gained into biofilm architecture and to study the mechanisms for their recalcitrance to antimicrobial therapy to gain insight into the serious and pervasive clinical impact of biofilm-related infections.
The Extracellular Polymeric Substances of Legionella pneumophila Biofilms Contain Amyloid Structures
TLDR
Inhibition of amyloid assembly by congo red and thioflavin T limited both self-aggregation and surface attachment of L. pneumophila, indicating that functionalAmyloid structures have a key role in initial biofilm formation by these pathogenic bacteria.
Comparative Study of Polycaprolactone Electrospun Fibers and Casting Films Enriched with Carbon and Nitrogen Sources and Their Potential Use in Water Bioremediation
TLDR
No significant difference in bacterial growth between the scaffolds and the casted films could be observed, but water bioremediation studies showed that P. aeruginosa on poly (caprolactone)/Glucose fibers was effective in removing 87% of chromium in 8 h.

Using enzymes to remove biofilms of bacterial isolates sampled in the food-industry
TLDR
Analysis of enzyme effects on the composition of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) and biofilm removal in a Clean-in-Place (CIP) procedure found a combination of enzymes targeting several components of EPS, surfactants, dispersing and chelating agents would be an efficient alternative to chemical cleaning agents.
Protease and amylase enzymes for biofilm removal and degradation of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) produced by Pseudomonas fluorescens bacteria

Enzymatic removal and disinfection of bacterial biofilms
TLDR
A complex mixture of polysaccharide-hydrolyzing enzymes was able to remove bacterial biofilm from steel and polypropylene substrata but did not have a significant bactericidal activity.
Initiation of biofilm formation in Pseudomonas fluorescens WCS365 proceeds via multiple, convergent signalling pathways: a genetic analysis
TLDR
The genetic analyses suggest that biofilm formation can proceed via multiple, convergent signalling pathways, which are regulated by various environmental signals, and that of the 24 sad mutants analysed in this study, only three had defects in genes of known function.
Effect of culture conditions on the production of an extracellular proteinase byThermus sp. Rt41A
TLDR
In continuous culture on L-glutamate, acetate or pyruvate, proteinase production was highest at higher growth (dilution) rates, which can be interpreted as evidence for the constitutive nature of proteinase expression by Thermus sp.
Biofilm exopolysaccharides: a strong and sticky framework.
TLDR
Wimpenny & Colasanti (1997) have suggested that biofilm structure is largely determined by the concentration of substrate, and postulated that such differences also validate at least three conceptual models of biofilms – heterogeneous mosaics, structures penetrated by water channels, and dense confluent bioFilms.

TLDR
The EPS matrix is a dynamic system, constructed by the organisms and responding to environmental changes, that enables the cells to function in a manner similar to multicellular organisms.
