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. Traduit par Docteur Serge Messier.

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

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. They open important perspectives for more effective obesity prevention and treatment that take into account food digestion and degradation in the intestines. The analytical validation of the assay showed intra- and inter-assay coefficients of variation CVs of 6.

Paris, 27 March Saliva: It is not yet known why a salivary amylase deficiency increases obesity: 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. Saliva samples were obtained before stress induction and 15, 30, and 60 min afterwards.


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. The objective of this study was to develop aalivaire time-resolved immunofluorometric assay TR-IFMA for quantification of salivary alpha-amylase in sheep.

Thus, individuals with low salivary amylase have abnormally high glycemia when they eat starch. Amylaze 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 They identified a region in chromosome 1 that is unique because it contains a gene, salivary amylase AMY1present in a single form in humans.

Only the salivary form seems to be associated with obesity. These entirely novel findings point to a genetic predisposition to obesity via complex carbohydrate digestion and its effects on the intestinal bacterial amylasee.

One billion people worldwide are overweight. 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.

Salivary cortisol was measured as a reference of stress level. Yet its number of copies can vary from one to 20, depending on the individual. There are two forms of amylase: For 10, years, since agriculture began, the number of AMY1 copies has increased, evidence of natural selection and human evolution: This work, published on March 30, in Nature Genetics, reveals for the first time a genetic link between complex carbohydrate digestion and obesity.

Eichler, Francois Pattou, Timothy D.

For that purpose, after the design of the assay, an analytical and amypase clinical validation were carried out. 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.

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 subjects and in those with normal weight. Nature Genetics, March 30,
