  • Description

    Found in many higher organisms, ALP plays an active role in regulating many biological processes, ranging from metabolism, signal transduction, molecule transportation, and the expression of genetic information. The measurement of ALP activity is used to aid in the study of physiological conditions, disease states mostly involving the skeletal system and liver, and the structure-activity relationships in inhibitor research.

    The DetectX® Alkaline Phosphatase Colorimetric Activity Kit is designed to quantitatively measure alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity in a variety of biological samples. The assay is formulated to measure ALP activity in physiologically relevant samples and includes a calibrated ALP standard.
