Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Dose Response confirmation of uHTS activators of Human Intestinal Alkaline Phosphatase using Placental Alkaline Phosphatase
Description:  Data Source: Sanford-Burnham Center for Chemical Genomics (SBCCG) Source Affiliation: Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (SBMRI, San Diego, CA) Network: NIH Molecular Libraries Production Centers Network (MLPCN) Grant Proposal Number: X01-MH077602-01 Assay Provider Dr. Jose Luis Millan, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (SBMRI, San Diego, CA) Alkaline phosphatase (EC 3.1.3.1) (APs) catalyze the hydrolysis of phosphomonoesters, releasing inorganic phosphate and alcohol. APs are dimeric enzymes found in most organisms. In human, four isozymes of APs have been identified. One isozyme is tissue-nonspecific (designated TNAP) and three other isozymes are tissue-specific and named according to the tissue of their predominant expression: intestinal (IAP), placental (PLAP) and germ cell (GCAP) alkaline phosphatases. IAP expression is largely restricted to the gut, especially to the epithelial cells (enterocytes) of the small intestinal mucosa. The exact biological function of
