Table 2 Alkaline phosphatase (AP) and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) activities in isolated KYF and Kbus BMSCs

From: Kbus/Idr, a mutant mouse strain with skeletal abnormalities and hypophosphatemia: Identification as an allele of 'Hyp'

   AP activity TRAP activity
4 wks KYF (n = 6) 19.7 ± 1.8 61.2 ± 1.8
  Kbus (n = 6) 41.7 ± 4.1* 69.4 ± 4.0
8 wks KYF (n = 7) 16.9 ± 1.9 58.6 ± 2.2
  Kbus (n = 8) 20.6 ± 3.7 52.8 ± 3.4

  1. munits/mg of protein (mean ± SEM)
  2. Since no significant differences were found between male and female samples, data from both sexes were combined.
  3. *, Significantly different from the values of age-matched KYF samples (P < 0.05).
