Natural amylase inhibitors have been found in actiniae of the Caribbean Sea. From the actiniaS. helianthus an inhibitor has been isolated by gel filtration on Sephadex G-50 and ion-exchange chromatography on CM-cellulose that is highly specific in relation to the amylases of marine mollusks and is inactive in relation of the amylases from other sources.
