|Precautions||Anti-Prostate Specific Acid Phosphatase (PSAP) Antibody 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.|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Recognizes a protein of 52kDa, identified as prostate specific acid phosphatase (PSAP). This enzyme catalyzes the conversion of orthophosphoric monoester to alcohol and orthophosphate. It is synthesized under androgen regulation and is secreted by the epithelial cells of the prostate gland. PSAP is found in non-neoplastic adult and fetal prostatic glands, primary and metastatic prostatic carcinomas. It shows no staining in granulocytes, osteoclasts, parietal cells of the stomach, liver cells, renal cell or breast carcinomas.
