Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)
It exists in multiple forms some of which are true isoenzymes.
Elevations in serum ALP activity commonly originate from the liver and bone.
A considerable rise in alkaline phosphatase activity is sometimes seen in children and juveniles. It is caused by increased osteoblast activity following accelerated bone growth.
