The alkaline phosphatase (AP) of Caco-2 cells, a cell line derived from a human adenocarcinoma of the colon, is quite similar to fetal intestinal AP in its enzymatic properties. The nucleotide sequence of a cDNA encoding AP produced in Caco-2 cells was examined. The sequence was identical to one of the three sequences of adult intestinal AP reported previously. We further investigated the entire nucleotide sequence of cDNA of intestinal-type AP produced in cancer cell lines such as HuH-7 cells, FL-amnion cells, and HuG-1 cells. The sequence of these cell APs was identical to that of Caco-2 cell AP. These results indicate that cancer cells producing intestinal-type AP have the same nucleotide sequence as that of adult intestinal AP, and suggest that the differences in electrophoretic mobilities of these cell APs compared with adult intestinal AP may be due to post-translational modifications.
