Salivary Amylase is a digestive enzyme secreted by salivary glands, it consists of a single polypeptide chain with a molecular weight of 56kD (family B) or 62kD (family A), the difference in molecular weight being due to the presence or absence of a carbohydrate moiety. The total serum concentration of amylase is about 120g/L of which about 50% is salivary amylase. Although salivary amylase and pancreatic amylase share 95% aa sequence homology, they differ in molecular size, isoelectricpoint and antigenic properties.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
