A number of isoenzymes of alkaline phosphatase have been found in human serum, and it has been assumed that liver and bone are the main tissue sources of these enzymes. A serum alkaline phosphatase of intestinal origin has now been identified by (1) its characteristic inhibition of enzyme activity in the presence of L-phenylalanine and (2) its location as a band of activity, after starch gel electrophoresis, migrating to the position for purified intestinal alkaline phosphatase. A similar band (unidentified as to organ source) has been related to the ABO blood types of normal individuals by other workers.
