human salivary α-amylase.

General description

α amylase is an enzyme present in human saliva and pancreatic secretions which activates in the presence of a chloride ion and needs calcium ion to maintain its structural integrity. Anti-α-amylase antibody (diluted 1:200) can be used in immunostaining.It can also be used as primary antibody in immunohistochemistry. Anti-α-amylase antibody reacts specifically with α amylase present in human saliva and pancreatic extract but not with other proteins of saliva and pancreatic extract.

Physical form

Lyophilized from 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.2


The antiserum is specific for human a-amylase found in human saliva and human pancreatic extract. No reaction with other human saliva proteins or pancreatic extract proteins is observed.


It can be used in immunofluorescence and immunohistochemical analysis.

Mouse pancreatic sections were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde and used for immunohistochemistry using rabbit anti-amylase antibody at a dilution of 1:100.


Reconstitute with 2 mL deionized water.
