Starch hydrolyzing enzymes including endoamylase, exoamylase, debranching enzyme and transferase belong to three glycosyl hydrolases families GH13, GH70 and GH77.
[alpha]-amylase is an endoamylase that hydrolyses 1.4-[alpha]-glycoside linkages of amylose and amylopectin chains, decomposing starch into soluble dextrins and oligosaccharides.

Amylases are classified into four groups including exoamylases, endoamylases, debranching enzymes and tranferases (Souza and Magalhaes, 2010).
Amylases can be divided into endoamylases and exoamylases.
