α-Amylase, which is produced by lung cancer tissue, was studied by cloning cDNAs from a cell line originating from lung cancer that produces amylase. Sequencing studies with this cDNA showed that the expressing gene is of the salivary type. The specific location of the start point of transcription, as revealed by S1 mapping, supported this conclusion.
