Phosphatase, Alkaline, Placental (Alkaline Phosphatase, Placental Type, Alkaline Phosphatase Regan isozyme, ALP, FLJ61142, PALP, Placental Alkaline Phosphatase 1, PLAP, PLAP-1)
Placental alkaline phosphatase (PLAP) is a membrane-associated sialoglycoprotein enzyme normally present at high concentration in syncytiotrophoblasts within the placenta during the third trimester of gestation. The expression of PLAP was originally thought to be restricted to term placenta but a human PLAP-like variant has been described which shares more than 85% homology with PLAP itself. PLAP is expressed only in normal term placenta, endocervix and fallopian tube and also in ovarian and proximal gastrointestinal tumors. It is also commonly expressed in germ cell tumors and more recently described in seminomas.
ALPP also interacts with the following gene(s): PTS. Amniotic Fluid, Heart, Intestine, Placenta, Uterus tissues are correlated with this protein. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene. Adenocarcinoma, Breast Neoplasms, Disorders of Sex Development, Liver Diseases, Lung Diseases, Mental Disorders, Necrosis, Neoplasms, Nervous System Diseases, Pain are some of the diseases may be linked to Phosphatase, Alkaline, Placental (Alkaline Phosphatase, Placental Type, Alkaline Phosphatase Regan isozyme, ALP, FLJ61142, PALP, Placental Alkaline Phosphatase 1, PLAP, PLAP-1).
