ABSTRACT
The article examines the effects of temperature on amylase activity in saliva. This experiment shows that salivary amylase undergoes a reversible denaturation process and that sodium chloride slows down the irreversible denaturation process. Topics include enzymatic reaction related to variations in temperature, denaturation in protein molecules, the notation for the enzyme-substrate complex, and the optimal temperature for amylase activity.

    A fragment coding for a putative extracellular α-amylase, from the genomic library of the yeast Saccharomycopsis fibuligera KZ, has been subcloned into yeast expression vector pVT100L and sequenced. The nucleotide sequence revealed an ORF of 1,485 bp coding for a 494 amino acid residues long...
