(15) observed in a study of 192 patients that 26% (n=18) of all hyperamylasemia patients (n=70) had an elevation of the pancreatic isoamylase
fraction, and the remaining 74% (n=52) of the patients were hyperamylasemic due to elevations in the non-pancreatic isoamylase
fraction or to both the pancreatic and non-pancreatic isoamylase

The debranching group (isoamylase
and pullanase) breaks a 1-6 glycoside linkage in amylopectin of starch.
Degradation of starch into a variety of different products is performed by amylolytic enzymes, such as [alpha]-amylase, glucoamylase, [beta]-amylase, isoamylase
, pullulanase, exo-1,4-[alpha]-D-glucanase, [alpha]-D-glycosidase, and cyclomaltodextrin-D-glucotransferase .
