Epithelial cells with osteoinductive potential (KB and WISH cell lines, transitional epithelium of several species) are rich in alkaline phosphatase activity. In contrast, cells devoid of osteoinductive ability are low in this enzyme activity. However, there were no differences between the two classes of cells with respect to acid phosphatase activity.
