It is not yet known why a salivary amylase deficiency increases obesity: Only the salivary form seems to be associated with obesity. French and British researchers went further by studying obesity-discordant Swedish siblings, analyzing their genome and the genes in adipose tissue, which are expressed differently in obese amykase and in those with normal weight.

They identified a region in chromosome 1 that is unique because it contains a gene, salivary amylase AMY1present in a single form in humans.

The objective of this study was to develop a time-resolved immunofluorometric assay TR-IFMA for quantification of salivary alpha-amylase in sheep. Researchers have noticed that people with the smallest number of AMY1 copies and therefore little amylase enzyme in their blood are ten times more at risk of becoming obese. Instead of having only two copies of this gene one from the father, one from the mother amypase number of AMY1 copies varies salivaiire humans from one to Salivary cortisol was measured as a reference of stress level.


Low copy number of the salivary amylase gene predisposes to obesity. The first is that chewing and partially digesting food in the mouth could have a hormonal effect inducing satiety, which would be reduced in the case of AMY1 deficiency.

Thus, individuals with low salivary amylase have abnormally high glycemia when they eat starch. For clinical validation, a model of acute stress testing was conducted to determine whether expected significant changes in alpha-amylase were picked up in the newly developed assay.

For 10, years, since salivaore began, the number of AMY1 copies has increased, evidence of natural selection and human evolution: One billion people worldwide are overweight.

Carlsson, Andrew Walley, Evan E. These entirely novel findings point to a genetic predisposition to obesity via complex carbohydrate digestion and its effects on the intestinal bacterial flora.

Nature Genetics, March 30, They open important perspectives for more effective obesity prevention and treatment that take into account food digestion and degradation in the intestines. That is what initial metabolomic studies conducted in patients with high or low salivary amylase suggest 3.


The assay also demonstrated a high level of accuracy, as determined by linearity saliivaire dilution. The analytical validation of the assay showed intra- and inter-assay coefficients of variation CVs of 6.

The researchers showed that people with the smallest number of salivary amylase copies and therefore low amylase levels in the blood are ten times more at risk of becoming obese. There are two forms of amylase: Paris, 27 March Saliva: For that purpose, after the design of the assay, an analytical and a clinical validation were carried out.

In that model, 11 sheep were immobilized and confronted with a sheepdog to induce stress. Yet its number of copies can vary from one to 20, depending on the individual. The assay developed in this study salivaife be used to measure salivary alpha-amylase in the saliva of sheep and this enzyme could be a amylaes noninvasive biomarker of stress in sheep.
