Summaries for ALPI Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ALPI Gene

  • There are at least four distinct but related alkaline phosphatases: intestinal, placental, placental-like, and liver/bone/kidney (tissue non-specific). The intestinal alkaline phosphatase gene encodes a digestive brush-border enzyme. This enzyme is a component of the gut mucosal defense system and is thought to function in the detoxification of lipopolysaccharide, and in the prevention of bacterial translocation in the gut. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]

GeneCards Summary for ALPI Gene

ALPI (Alkaline Phosphatase, Intestinal) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ALPI include Waardenburg's Syndrome and Testis Seminoma. Among its related pathways are Acyl chain remodelling of PE and Folate biosynthesis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include magnesium ion binding and protease binding. An important paralog of this gene is ALPG.
