Summary of "Detection of Bacterial Alkaline Phosphatase Activity by Enzymatic In Situ Self-Assembly of the AIEgen-Peptide Conjugate."

Abnormal levels of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity are associated with various diseases, and many ALP probes have been developed to date. However, the development of ALP-sensitive probes for living cells, especially for the detection of bacterial ALP, remains challenging because of the complex and dynamic context. In this study, we constructed the first fluorescent probe (TPEPy-pY) for sensing bacterial ALP activity. TPEPy-pY is an AIEgen-peptide conjugate with property of aggregation-induced emission (AIE) and could turn on its fluorescence by ALP-catalyzed in situ self-assembly of the probe. The probe shows excellent selectivity and sensitivity for ALP activity, with a detection limit of 6.6 × 10 U mL. TPEPy-pY performs well in detection and in situ imaging of bacterial ALP activity against . Also, the detection does not require tedious washing steps and takes approximately 1 h, which is advantageous over commercial ALP kits. Therefore, the proposed strategy paved a new avenue for bacterial ALP detection, and we envision that more self-assembling fluorescent probes will be designed with higher sensitivity in the near future.

A physiologically active metabolite of VITAMIN D. The compound is involved in the regulation of calcium metabolism, alkaline phosphatase activity, and enhances the calcemic effect of CALCITRIOL.

One of four major classes of mammalian serine/threonine specific protein phosphatases. Protein phosphatase 2C is a monomeric enzyme about 42 kDa in size. It shows broad substrate specificity dependent on divalent cations (mainly manganese and magnesium). Three isozymes are known in mammals: PP2C -alpha, -beta and -gamma. In yeast, there are four PP2C homologues: phosphatase PTC1 that have weak tyrosine phosphatase activity, phosphatase PTC2, phosphatase PTC3, and PTC4. Isozymes of PP2C also occur in Arabidopsis thaliana where the kinase-associated protein phosphatase (KAPP) containing a C-terminal PP2C domain, dephosphorylates Ser/Thr receptor-like kinase RLK5.
