There are only two gene loci code for alkaline phosphatase of mammalian other than human and great apes: one for the intestinal form and other for the liver/kidney/bone form. The former form is present only in the intestine and the latter form occurs in other tissues such as liver, kidney and bone. In the present study, the rabbit was found to be different from other mammalian in the tissue distribution of alkaline phosphatase isoenzymes: only in the rabbit, most of the enzyme in the kidney and liver was the third form which differs from the liver/kidney/bone form, and this form was enzymatically and immunologically similar to the intestinal form of ALPase.
