|Other Names||Prostatic acid phosphatase, PAP, 188.8.131.52, 5'-nucleotidase, 5'-NT, 184.108.40.206, Ecto-5'-nucleotidase, Thiamine monophosphatase, TMPase, PAPf39, ACPP|
|Format||0.5 mg/ml in Tris saline, 0.02% sodium azide, pH7.3 with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ACPP Antibody (internal region) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||A non-specific tyrosine phosphatase that dephosphorylates a diverse number of substrates under acidic conditions (pH 4-6) including alkyl, aryl, and acyl orthophosphate monoesters and phosphorylated proteins. Has lipid phosphatase activity and inactivates lysophosphatidic acid in seminal plasma.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Secreted|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in the prostate, restricted to glandular and ductal epithelial cells. Also expressed in bladder, kidney, pancreas, lung, cervix, testis and ovary. Weak expression in a subset of pancreatic islet cells, squamous epithelia, the pilosebaceous unit, colonic neuroendocrine cells and skin adnexal structures. Isoform 2 also expressed in the sarcolemma of skeletal muscle. Levels of this cellular isoform decreased in prostate cancer.|
