Re: alkaline phosphatase

From:Ronnie Houston

I use a 10mM concentration of levamisole. However, levamisole will not inhibit intestinal alkaline phosphatase; if it is intestine you are working with, then you will need to use either 20% acetic or 0.3% hydrogen peroxide and 2.5% periodic acid.
As far as a web-site is concerned, sorry can't help there; however, alkaline phosphatase is found in a wide variety of tissues, including but not limited to, liver, kidney, intestine, bone, skeletal and cardiac muscle, brain, capillaries, lymph nodes, lung.......

Does anybody know the good blocking method for endogenous alkaline 
phosphatase in kidney? Will 5mM levamisole in substrate solution or 20% 
acetic acid be effective?
Could anybody tell me or recommend me a web site I can search that what 
organs contain high level of alkaline phosphatase?
Any help is highly appreciated.
