A panel of 19 monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) against human tissue-nonspecific (liver/bone/kidney) alkaline phosphatase (TNAP) was obtained through the ISOBM TD-9 workshop. In the present study, the reactivity of these MAbs has been characterized against mouse TNAP. A mouse embryonic stem cell line, frozen sections of long bones, alkaline phosphatase extracted from mouse bone, and serum were used as the source of TNAP for individual assays. Each MAb was tested for immunoreactivity to mouse TNAP by Western blot analysis, immunohistochemistry and enzyme immunoassay. Antibodies 314 and 315 reacted strongly with mouse TNAP in Western blots, while all other antibodies were negative. By immunohistochemistry, antibodies 314, 315 and 333 produced strong positive staining using frozen sections, while antibody 334 was moderately positive. Enzyme immunoassays indicated that MAb 333 was also able to bind to serum TNAP. These antibodies represent very useful reagents to study the pathophysiological expression of TNAP in mouse tissues and in mouse serum. Copyright (C) 2005 S. Karger AG, Basel.
