Tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase

The ALPL gene encodes the tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase, a membrane bound glycosylated protein involved in bone metabolism. Mutations cause various forms of atosomal recessive and dominant hypophosphatasia. Also in epidemiological studies, this locus was associated with susceptibility to kidney stones.
