MyBioSource produces and manufactures high purity human pancreatic alpha-Amylase for research and diagnostic manufacturing uses.

Custom preparations, technical support, bulk quantities and aliquoting available.

Alpha-Amylase is an enzyme that hydrolyses alpha-bonds of large alpha-linked polysaccharides such as starch and glycogen, yielding glucose and maltose. It is being used by researchers as a barometer of the body's response to physical or psychological stress. NIH study shows that Women with high levels of alpha amylase, indicating stress, are less likely to conceive.

NCBI Summary for AMY2A
This gene encodes a member of the alpha-amylase family of proteins. Amylases are secreted proteins that hydrolyze 1,4-alpha-glucoside bonds in oligosaccharides and polysaccharides, catalyzing the first step in digestion of dietary starch and glycogen. This gene and several family members are present in a gene cluster on chromosome 1. This gene encodes an amylase isoenzyme produced by the pancreas. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2015]
UniProt Comments for AMY2A
AMY2A: Amylases are secreted proteins that hydrolyze 1,4-alpha-glucoside bonds in oligosaccharides and polysaccharides, and thus catalyze the first step in digestion of dietary starch and glycogen. The human genome has a cluster of several amylase genes that are expressed at high levels in either salivary gland or pancreas. This gene encodes an amylase isoenzyme produced by the pancreas.
