Abstract

Ascorbic acid is found strikingly to decrease the activity of bovine kidney alkaline phosphatase in vitro. The inhibition of alkaline phosphatase is a function of ascorbic acid concentration and is time and temperature dependent. The presence of the substrate protects the enzyme against the inhibitory action of the vitamin.
