Description…

AMY2A, a secreted protein, is an amylase isoenzyme produced by the pancreas. Amylases 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.
