Tissue sections of mammary glands of mastitic cattle revealed low, negligible or altogether no activity (staining) of alkaline phosphatase on the outer membrane of alveolar cells. The negligible to no activity of localization of alkaline phosphatase in mastitic tissues may be related with deactivation of this enzyme owing to negative regulatory process of mammary gland.
