Primary structure of human salivary alpha-amylase gene.

A recombinant clone which covers the human salivary alpha-amylase gene in a single insert has been isolated from a human genomic DNA library using a human salivary alpha-amylase cDNA as a probe. Restriction mapping and nucleotide (nt) sequence analysis revealed that this gene is approx. 10 kb long and is separated into eleven exons by ten introns. Its 5… (More)
