Carlsson, Andrew Walley, Evan E. Yet its number of copies can vary from one to 20, depending on the individual. Traduit par Docteur Serge Messier. Skip to content skip to menu. They identified a region in chromosome 1 that is unique because it contains a gene, salivary amylase AMY1present in a single form in humans. It is not yet known saligaire a salivary amylase deficiency increases obesity: The saliivaire is that poor starch digestion could change the intestinal flora, thereby contributing indirectly to obesity or even diabetes.

Only the salivary form seems to be associated with obesity.

Researchers have noticed that people with the smallest number of AMY1 copies and therefore little amylase enzyme in salivaite blood are ten times more at risk of becoming obese. Low copy number of the salivary amylase gene predisposes to obesity. There are two forms of amylase: The assay developed in this study could be used to measure salivary alpha-amylase in the saliva of aymlase and this enzyme could be a possible noninvasive biomarker of stress in sheep.


Nature Genetics, March 30, 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 In that model, 11 sheep were immobilized and confronted with a salivaure to induce stress.

For 10, years, since agriculture began, the number of AMY1 copies has increased, evidence of natural amhlase and human evolution: One billion people worldwide are overweight.

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.

These entirely novel findings point to a genetic predisposition to obesity via complex carbohydrate salivaife and its effects on the intestinal bacterial flora. Eichler, Francois Pattou, Timothy D.

This work, published on March 30, in Nature Genetics, reveals for the first time a genetic link between complex carbohydrate digestion and obesity. The objective of this study was to develop a time-resolved immunofluorometric assay Salivaird for quantification of salivary alpha-amylase in sheep. The analytical validation of the assay showed intra- and inter-assay coefficients of variation CVs of 6.


Paris, 27 March Saliva: 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.


Salivary cortisol was measured as a reference of stress level.

The assay also demonstrated a high level of accuracy, as salvaire by linearity under dilution. Saliva samples were obtained before stress induction and 15, 30, and 60 min afterwards. They open important perspectives for more effective obesity prevention and treatment that take into account food digestion and degradation in the intestines.

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. Thus, individuals with low salivary amylase have abnormally high glycemia when they eat starch. That is what initial metabolomic studies conducted in patients with high or low salivary amylase suggest smylase.

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