Any difference?

Postby opuntia » Fri Jul 08, 2005 6:11 pm

Is their any difference between the enzyme salivary amylase and alamalze?[i'm thinking that they are just the same enzymes as they both have the same function and are found in the mouth and also i'm sort of :? ....]

Is the second enzyme spelt correctly? I haven't heard of it and I thought that all (or probably most...) enzymes ended in ase. And if you search for alamalze on google you get 2 hits both from the same website. :?

Yup..I never heard that 'alamalze' enzyme...maybe it's because of different in language, so they write it in their own language...
@Chris4
I think not all the enzymes ended with -ase word...in our saliva, there's oe amilase enzyme called 'ptialin' insn't it?? :lol:

Thats why i put probably most. Just to make sure. I was taught it was all enzymes end in ase in high school but thats just a generalisation and to help with learning. Would be better if all enzymes ended in ase. :roll:

Thats the one website which google finds. Its a spelling mistake. It has to be. The pubmed database (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?db=PubMed) which searches 15 million citations (thats 15 million scientific papers :shock: ) finds nothing for alamalze.
Amylase is also a sugar digesting enzyme.
You could ask your teacher about it but unless she/he wrote the website they probably won't have heard of it.

He said that salivary amylase and alamalze are the same since they bothare found in the same place and has the same function.
