  • RelevancePancreatic amylase is a digestive enzyme secreted by the pancreas. It consists of a single polypeptide chain with a molecular weight of 54 kDa. Pancreatic amylase occurs in serum at a concentration of about 60µg/L, from a total amylase concentration in serum of about 120µg/L. Pancreatic amylase and salivary amylase are the products of separate genes and, although they share 98% amino acid sequence homology, they differ in molecular size, isoelectric point and antigenic properties. Measurement of amylase concentrations in serum is a diagnostic test for various pancreatic disorders (especially acute and relapsing pancreatitis).

Anti-Pancreatic alpha amylase antibody images

  • IHC image of Pancreatic Amylase staining in Human pancreas normal formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab21156, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
