Alkaline Phosphatase Assay Kit is a colorimetric kinetic determination of serum alkaline phosphatase activity.
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphate esters in an alkaline environment, resulting in the formation of an organic radical and inorganic phosphate. In mammals, this enzyme is found mainly in the liver and bones. Marked increase in serum ALP levels, a disease known as hyperalkalinephosphatasemia, has been associated with malignant biliary obstruction, primary biliary cirrhosis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, hepatic lymphoma and sarcoidosis.
Direct Assays: ALP activity in serum, plasma and other sources.Characterization and Quality Control for ALP production.Drug Discovery: high-throughput screen for ALP inhibitors and evaluation of ALP inhibitors.
