am·y·lase

 (ăm′ə-lās′, -lāz′)
n.
Any of a group of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of starch to sugars. In humans, amylases are produced in the salivary glands and the pancreas.

amylase

(ˈæmɪˌleɪz)
n
(Biochemistry) any of several enzymes that hydrolyse starch and glycogen to simple sugars, such as glucose. They are present in saliva

am•yl•ase

(ˈæm əˌleɪs, -ˌleɪz)

n.
any of several digestive enzymes that break down starches.
[1890–95]

am·y·lase

(ăm′ə-lās′)
Any of various enzymes that break down starches into their component sugars, such as glucose. Amylase is present in fluid secreted by the pancreas, in saliva in some mammals, and in plants.
