Islet Amyloid Polypeptide .
Amlintide .
Amylin .
IAPP Precursor .
IAPP Protein .
Insulinoma Amyloid Polypeptide .
Insulinoma Amyloid Polypeptide Precursor .
Islet Amyloid Polypeptide Precursor .
Pancreatic Amylin .
Amylin, Pancreatic .
Amyloid Polypeptide, Insulinoma .
Amyloid Polypeptide, Islet .
Polypeptide, Insulinoma Amyloid .
Polypeptide, Islet Amyloid .
A pancreatic beta-cell hormone that is co-secreted with INSULIN. It displays an anorectic effect on nutrient metabolism by inhibiting gastric acid secretion, gastric emptying and postprandial GLUCAGON secretion. Islet amyloid polypeptide can fold into AMYLOID FIBRILS that have been found as a major constituent of pancreatic AMYLOID DEPOSITS. .
Amylases .
Amylase .
Diastase .
A group of amylolytic enzymes that cleave starch, glycogen, and related alpha-1,4-glucans. (Stedman, 25th ed) EC 3.2.1.-. .
Starch .
Amylomaize Starch .
Amylum .
Cornstarch .
Keoflo .
Starch, Amylomaize .
Any of a group of polysaccharides of the general formula (C6-H10-O5)n, composed of a long-chain polymer of glucose in the form of amylose and amylopectin. It is the chief storage form of energy reserve (carbohydrates) in plants. .

Amylin Receptor .
Amylin Receptors .
IAPP Receptor .
Islet Amyloid Polypeptide Receptor .
Receptor, Amylin .
Receptor, IAPP .
Receptors, Amylin .
G-protein coupled receptors that are formed through the dimerization of the CALCITONIN RECEPTOR with a RECEPTOR ACTIVITY-MODIFYING PROTEIN. Their affinity for ISLET AMYLOID POLYPEPTIDE is dependent upon which of several receptor activity-modifying protein subtypes they are bound to. .
Amylose .
An unbranched glucan in starch. .
Amyloid .
Amyloid Fibrils .
Amyloid Substance .
Fibrils, Amyloid .
Substance, Amyloid .
A fibrous protein complex that consists of proteins folded into a specific cross beta-pleated sheet structure. This fibrillar structure has been found as an alternative folding pattern for a variety of functional proteins. Deposits of amyloid in the form of AMYLOID PLAQUES are associated with a variety of degenerative diseases. The amyloid structure has also been found in a number of functional proteins that are unrelated to disease. .
