Caption: Computer graphics representation of taka amylase, an enzyme. Amylases are a group of related enzymes that break down starch, glycogen and other polysaccharides. Plants contain both the alpha and beta types of amylases; animals possess only the alpha form, found in pancreatic secretions and (in humans) in saliva. Amylases break the long polysaccharide chains, leaving a mixture of the sugars glucose and maltose. Computer modelling: green sticks, orange ribbons.
