Validation of an assay for quantification of alpha-amylase in saliva of sheep.

salivqire Only the salivary form seems to be associated with obesity. For 10, years, since agriculture began, the number of AMY1 copies has increased, evidence of natural selection and human evolution: In that model, 11 sheep were immobilized and confronted with a sheepdog to induce stress.

The assay also demonstrated a high level of accuracy, as determined by linearity under dilution. The second is that poor starch digestion could change the intestinal flora, thereby contributing indirectly to obesity or even diabetes.


That is what initial metabolomic studies salivairee in patients with high or low salivary amylase suggest 3. These entirely novel findings point to a genetic predisposition to obesity via complex carbohydrate digestion and its effects on the intestinal bacterial flora. Thus, individuals with low salivary amylase have abnormally high glycemia when they eat starch. Paris, 27 March Saliva: The first is that chewing and partially digesting amyoase in the mouth could have a hormonal effect inducing satiety, which would be reduced in the case of AMY1 deficiency.


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 salivairw sheep.

Saliva : a new trail in obesity genetics

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. One billion people worldwide are overweight.

Saliva samples were obtained before stress induction and 15, 30, and 60 min afterwards. For that purpose, after the design of the assay, an analytical and a clinical validation were carried out.

There are two forms anylase amylase: French and British researchers went further by studying obesity-discordant Swedish amylsae, analyzing their genome and the genes in adipose tissue, which are expressed differently in obese subjects and in those with normal weight.

Low copy number of the salivary amylase gene predisposes to obesity. The analytical validation of the assay showed intra- and inter-assay coefficients of variation CVs of 6. It is not zmylase known why a salivary amylase deficiency increases obesity: Nature Genetics, March 30, 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.


The assay developed in this study could be used to measure salivary alpha-amylase in the saliva of sheep and this enzyme could be a possible noninvasive biomarker of stress in sheep.

Skip to content skip to menu. The researchers showed that people with the salivaie number of salivary amylase copies and therefore low amylase levels in the blood are ten times more at risk of becoming obese.

Eichler, Francois Pattou, Timothy D. Saliavire cortisol was measured as a reference of stress level. Instead of having only two copies of this gene one from the father, one from the mother the number of AMY1 copies varies in humans from one to Carlsson, Andrew Walley, Evan E.

This work, published on March 30, in Nature Genetics, reveals for the first time a genetic link between complex carbohydrate digestion and obesity. Traduit par Docteur Serge Messier.

Yet its number of copies can vary from one to 20, depending on the individual. They open important perspectives for more effective obesity prevention and treatment that take into account food digestion and degradation in the intestines.
