Introduction: Hypophosphatasia (HPP) characterized by reduced mineralization occurs from mutations in the tissue non-specific alkaline phosphatase (ALPL) gene. Individuals harbouring bi-allelic mutations are generally reported to be severely affected. We report the findings of in vitro functional studies following site-directed mutagenesis in bi-allelic mutations causing extreme clinical phenotypes; severe perinatal and asymptomatic HPP.Objectiv...
