Serratiopeptidase Enzyme (EC number 188.8.131.52) is a protease produced by non-pathogenic enterobacterium Serratia sp. E-15, now known as Serratia marcescens. This microorganism was originally isolated from the silkworm. Present in the silkworm intestines, this enzyme helps the emerging moth to dissolve its cocoon. This enzyme is produced by a process called purification from Serratia E-15 bacteria culture. It is clear that the role of the Serratiopeptidase enzyme as a therapeutic agent in oral and maxillofacial surgery is ever expanding and they hold a promising future as a broad-spectrum anti-inflammatory drug with minimal side effects and complications. It is available in powder and granular form with different grades.
