AMY2B

Official Full Name
Homo sapiens amylase, alpha 2B (pancreatic) DNA.
Background
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.
