1. Rennin (chymosin)
A proteolytic enzyme that is used to curdle milk to make cheese. Rennin is typically used in the form of rennet, a commercial preparation taken from the abomasum of young calves, but because the demand for rennin is so great, the cheese industry is increasingly turning to rennin-producing microbes such Mucor miehei and Mucor pusillus.
