Amylases catalyze the cleavage of α-D-1,4 and α-D-1,6-glycosidic bonds in starch and related carbohydrates. Amylases are widely distributed in nature and are important in carbohydrate metabolism. This is the release of four single and two double deletions in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium LT2 that are important for glycan degradation during infection.
