Alpha amylase acts on which bond?
|A||Alpha 1-4 bond|
1. Ptyalin or Salivary amylase →α-amylase, requires CI- (chloride) for activation and optimum pH
6.7. (inactivated at <3, pH). It hydrolyze α-1→4 glycosidic bond of the polysaccharides.
Starch, glycogen and Dextrins -------------------→Glucose, Maltose, and Maltotriose
2. Pancreatic Amylase (similar to salivary amylase): -α-Amylase, optimum pH is 7.1 and require cl- ions for its activation, Hydrolyze α-1 →4 glycosidic bonds of polysaccharides. Pancreatic a Amylase is also known as
