  • ptyalin
  • In gastric juice adjusted to pH 3.3, ptyalin was totally inactivated in 20 minutes at 37 °C. In contrast, 50% of amylase activity remained after 150 minutes of exposure to gastric juice at pH 4.3. (wikipedia.org)
  • fungi
  • Herein, the importance of microbial (bacteria and fungi) amylase is discussed along with its production methods from the laboratory to industrial scales. (hindawi.com)
  • Gene
  • Optimum pH - 7.0 Human body temperature[citation needed] Presence of certain anions and activators: Chloride and bromide - most effective Iodide - less effective Sulfate and phosphate - least effective The salivary amylase gene has undergone duplication during evolution, and DNA hybridization studies indicate many individuals have multiple tandem repeats of the gene. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, a Japanese individual had 14 copies of the amylase gene (one allele with 10 copies, and a second allele with four copies). (wikipedia.org)
  • Perry and colleagues speculated the increased copy number of the salivary amylase gene may have enhanced survival coincident to a shift to a starchy diet during human evolution. (wikipedia.org)
  • Amy2A
  • salivary - AMY1A, AMY1B, AMY1C pancreatic - AMY2A, AMY2B α-Amylase activity in grain is measured by, for instance, the Hagberg-Perten Falling Number, a test to assess sprout damages, or the Phadebas method. (wikipedia.org)
  • oligosaccharides
  • The first step in the production of high-fructose corn syrup is the treatment of cornstarch with α-amylase, producing shorter chains of sugars oligosaccharides. (wikipedia.org)
  • microbes
  • Contrary to the skin abscesses caused by infections, amylase linked abscesses contain only pus without microbes. (medhelp.org)
  • microbial
  • Industrial sectors with top-down and bottom-up approaches are currently focusing on improving microbial amylase production levels by implementing bioengineering technologies. (hindawi.com)
  • readings
  • Medications such as aspirin, birth control pills, opiates and thiazide diuretics may cause false readings on an amylase test. (reference.com)
  • found
  • I was trying to find something about low amylase levels as mine were recently found to be. (medhelp.org)
  • These amylases share a 97% - 99% amino acid sequence identity, and two potential N-glycosylation sites (N427 and N476) are commonly found in the C-terminal region. (scirp.org)
  • In this study, we found that there was no significant change of ratio of glycosylated molecules among isozymes produced by the same cultured cells, indicating that glycosylation of amylase is influenced by the type of cell producing the enzyme rather than being an inherent property of the amylase isozymes. (scirp.org)
  • We studied the structures of N-glycans of human pancreatic amylase and found that they are different from those of salivary amylase (Oyama et al. (scirp.org)
  • Units
  • The normal range of amylase in the blood is between 23 and 85 units per liter, though some laboratories use different ranges, and patients should rely on their doctors to advise if their results are abnormal, states MedlinePlus. (reference.com)
  • test
  • As with other tests that involve blood samples, fainting or feeling light-headed, hematoma, infection and excessive bleeding are possible side effects of an amylase blood test. (reference.com)
  • For a blood test for amylase, do not eat or drink anything except water for at least 2 hours before having the test. (wellspan.org)
  • although
  • Although there are two potential N-glycosylation sites (N427 and N476) in the C-terminal region of these amylases, glycosylation of the amylases seems to occur in a tissuespecific manner. (scirp.org)
  • structures
  • Using Eradicake™ alpha-amylase to break down the polymer structures of filter cake is easy and convenient (no specialized equipment is required), and safe for the operator and the environment. (synbioproject.org)
