Amylase, alpha 2A

alpha-amylase, pancreatic alpha-amylase
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.

Fábián et al., Budapest, Hungary. In J Physiol Paris, Jan 2016

Kurt et al., İstanbul, Turkey. In Psychiatry Res, Jan 2016
UNASSIGNED: It is suggested that salivary alpha-amylase (sAA) may be a marker of sympathoadrenal medullary system activity.
Psychological acute stress measurement using a wireless adhesive biosensor.
Selvaraj, In Conf Proc Ieee Eng Med Biol Soc, Aug 2015
During the study, the subjects filled out state anxiety form-Y1 of the State Anxiety Inventory questionnaire (sSTAI); salivary samples were obtained for salivary alpha-amylase (sAA) and salivary cortisol (sC) measurements; and the HealthPatch sensor data were wirelessly acquired.
Wheat grain preharvest sprouting and late maturity alpha-amylase.
Mrva et al., Adelaide, Australia. In Planta, 2014
Preharvest sprouting (PHS) and late maturity α-amylase (LMA) are the two major causes of unacceptably high levels of α-amylase in ripe wheat grain.
The active role of leguminous plant components in type 2 diabetes.
Nowakowska-Zajdel et al., Katowice, Poland. In Evid Based Complement Alternat Med, 2013
The most significant bioactive compounds displaying antidiabetic activity in leguminous plants are as follows: genistein and daidzein, alpha-amylase inhibitors, and alpha-glucosidase inhibitors.
Biomarkers of stress in behavioural medicine.
Strahler et al., Marburg an der Lahn, Germany. In Curr Opin Psychiatry, 2013
We will present findings on commonly used stress biomarkers (cortisol, alpha-amylase, pro-inflammatory cytokines) regarding alterations in basal activity and stress-dependent reactivity in these systems, and discuss selected findings on intervention-induced changes of these biomarkers.
[Microbial alpha-amylases: physicochemical properties, substrate specificity and domain structure].
Varbanets' et al., In Ukr Biokhim Zh (1999), 2013
Synthesis of alpha-amylase majority is an inducible process which is stimulated in the presence of starch or products of its hydrolysis.
Is salivary alpha-amylase an indicator of autonomic nervous system dysregulations in mental disorders?--a review of preliminary findings and the interactions with cortisol.
Ströhle et al., Berlin, Germany. In Psychoneuroendocrinology, 2013
During recent years, a growing interest emerged in using salivary alpha-amylase (sAA) as a non-invasive, surrogate marker for sympathetic activity.
Functional regulation of sugar assimilation by N-glycan-specific interaction of pancreatic α-amylase with glycoproteins of duodenal brush border membrane.
Ogawa et al., Tokyo, Japan. In J Biol Chem, 2012
Mammalian pancreatic alpha-amylases share a common carbohydrate binding activity and specifically bind to the intestinal brush border.
Salivary alpha-amylase and cortisol responsiveness following electrical stimulation stress in major depressive disorder patients.
Akiyoshi et al., Ōita, Japan. In Prog Neuropsychopharmacol Biol Psychiatry, 2012
results show a strong association between acute physical stressor-induced elevations in sAA levels and patients with MDD.
State and trait variance in salivary α-amylase: a behavioral genetic study.
van Ijzendoorn et al., Leiden, Netherlands. In Biol Psychol, 2011
These findings confirm that sAA is sensitive to the effects of potentially stressful stimuli (state variance) and at the same time demonstrate its relative robustness and stability across time and conditions (trait variance).
Chloride regulation of enzyme turnover: application to the role of chloride in photosystem II.
Brudvig et al., New Haven, United States. In Biochemistry, 2011
Studies indicate that chloride activates alpha-amylases and ACE, and gaining insight into the potential mechanisms by which chloride functions in PSII.
AMY2A: a possible tumor-suppressor gene of 1p21.1 loss in gastric carcinoma.
Park et al., New York City, United States. In Int J Oncol, 2010
We demonstrated that AMY2A is frequently silenced in gastric carcinoma deletion 1p21.1.
Two promoters of different strengths control the transcription of the mouse alpha-amylase gene Amy-1a in the parotid gland and the liver.
Pittet et al., In Cell, 1983
We show that two promoters of different strengths are involved in the tissue-specific expression of the alpha-amylase gene Amy-1a in the parotid gland and the liver of mouse.
A bean alpha-amylase inhibitor formulation (starch blocker) is ineffective in man.
Olsen et al., In Science, 1983
A commercial alpha-amylase inhibitor with potent inhibitory activity in vitro was used in a randomized double-blind, cross-over clinical trial in six nonobese, healthy adult males.
Mouse liver and salivary gland alpha-amylase mRNAs differ only in 5' non-translated sequences.
Young et al., In Nature, 1981
The sequence of 1,773-nucleotide major and 1,806-nucleotide minor mouse liver alpha-amylase mRNAs differ only with respect to approximately 30 additional residues at the extreme 5' terminus of the minor species.
A single mouse alpha-amylase gene specifies two different tissue-specific mRNAs.
Schibler et al., In Cell, 1981
The alpha-amylase mRNAs which accumulate in two different tissues of the mouse, the salivary gland and the liver, are identical except for their 5' non-translated sequences: the 5' terminal 158 nucleotides of the major liver alpha-amylase mRNA are unrelated to the 5' terminal 47 nucleotides found in its salivary gland counterpart.
