Alkaline Phosphatase / ALPL Zusammenfassung und Proteininformation

Alkaline Phosphatase / ALPL Hintergrund

Zusammenfassung der Gene: OMIM - description for Alkaline Phosphatase:
General information above from NCBI
Katalytische Aktivität: A phosphate monoester + H(2)O = an alcohol + phosphate.
Cofactor: Binds 1 magnesium ion (By similarity).
Binds 2 zinc ions (By similarity).
Untereinheitenstruktur: Homodimer.
Subzelluläre Position: Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor, GPI-anchor.
Posttranslational: Glycosylated.
Rolle bei der Krankheit: Hypophosphatasia (HOPS) [MIM:146300]: A metabolic bone disease characterized by defective skeletal mineralization and biochemically by deficient activity of the tissue non-specific isoenzyme of alkaline phosphatase. Four forms are distinguished, depending on the age of onset: perinatal, infantile, childhood and adult type. The perinatal form is the most severe and is almost always fatal. The adult form is mild and characterized by recurrent fractures, osteomalacia, rickets, and loss of teeth. Some cases are asymptomatic, while some patients manifest dental features without skeletal manifestations (odontohypophosphatasia). Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Hypophosphatasia childhood type (HOPSC) [MIM:241510]: A bone disease characterized by defective skeletal mineralization and biochemically by deficient activity of the tissue non-specific isoenzyme of alkaline phosphatase. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Hypophosphatasia infantile type (HOPSI) [MIM:241500]: A severe bone disease characterized by defective skeletal mineralization and biochemically by deficient activity of the tissue non-specific isoenzyme of alkaline phosphatase. Three more or less distinct types of infantile hypophosphatasia can be identified: (1) type 1 with onset in utero or in early postnatal life, craniostenosis, severe skeletal abnormalities, hypercalcemia, and death in the first year or so of life; (2) type 2 with later, more gradual development of symptoms, moderately severe 'rachitic' skeletal changes and premature loss of teeth; (3) type 3 with no symptoms, the condition being determined on routine studies. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Sequenzähnlichkeit: Belongs to the alkaline phosphatase family.
General information above from UniProt

Alkaline phosphatase (ALPL) is a hydrolase enzyme responsible for removing phosphate groups from many types of molecules, including nucleotides, proteins, and alkaloids. The process of removing the phosphate group is called dephosphorylation. As the name suggests, alkaline phosphatases are most effective in an alkaline environment. It is sometimes used synonymously as basic phosphatase. Alkaline phosphatases (APs) are ubiquitous in many species, from bacteria to human. Four genes encode AP isoenzymes in humans and rodents. Three AP genes are expressed in a tissue-specific manner (i.e., placental, embryonic, and intestinal AP isoenzymes). Expression of the fourth AP gene is nonspecific to a single tissue and is especially abundant in bone, liver, and kidney. This isoenzyme is also called tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase (TNAP). The enzyme tissue non-specific alkaline phosphatase (TNAP) belongs to the ectophosphatase family. TNAP is present in large amounts in bone in which it plays a role in mineralization.
