What is the Alkaline Phosphatase Isoenzymes test?
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme that is naturally present throughout the body. It comes in many variations called isoenzymes. Each isoenzyme of ALP is different depending on where it is made in the body. Your bones make an isoenzyme called ALP-2. The levels of this enzyme increase when the bones are growing or bone cells are active.
