Alkaline Phosphatase/ALPL was detected in immersion fixed differentiated human osteoblasts using Human/Mouse/Rat Alkaline Phosphatase/ALPL Biotinylated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAM1448) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Streptavidin (red; Catalog # NL999) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Background: Alkaline Phosphatase/ALPL
The liver, bone and kidney Alkaline Phosphatase, also known as tissue non-specific Alkaline Phosphatase, is a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchored protein. Human liver/bone/kidney Alkaline Phosphatase shares 90% amino acid sequence homology with the mouse enzyme.
