Study Of Digestion Of Starch By Salivary Amylase Essays and Term Papers

  • Digestion of Starch by Salivary Amylase

    The role of salivary amylase in the digestion of starches remains controversial. In the absence of pancreatic amylase, the key enzyme for starch digestion, salivary amylase may well represent a potential compensatory alternate pathway for the digestion of amylose, amylopectin, and glycogen. Clinically...
