Related Product Information for AMY1A protein

   MyBioSource produces and manufactures high purity human salivary Amylase for research and diagnostic manufacturing uses.

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

Amylase is an enzyme that breaks starch down into sugar. Amylase is present in human saliva, where it begins the chemical process of digestion. Foods that contain much starch but little sugar, such as rice and potato, taste slightly sweet as they are chewed because amylase turns some of their starch into sugar in the mouth.

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 AMY1A    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 salivary gland. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding the same protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
