rennin

(Science: enzyme) A proteolytic enzyme that isused 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 as mucor miehei and Mucor pusillus.
