Salivary amylase of a millipede (Thyropygus nigrolabiatus) showed similar enzyme kinetics as compared to those of insects. The amylase had an optimum pH of 5.4 at 39° and a Km value of 0.02​% for starch. Glucose 1-​phosphate (0.1M) significantly inhibited the enzyme activity when starch or glycogen was used as the substrate.
