What is Human Acid Phosphatase? Human Prostate Acid Phosphatase also known as human prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP,ACP) is alternative marker to Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) for prostate malignancy. Rape investigations will often include testing for the presence of Human prostatic (prostate) acid phosphatase in vaginal fluid.

The highest levels of acid phosphatase are found in metastasized prostate cancer. Diseases of the bone, such as Paget's disease or hyperparathyroidism, diseases of blood cells, such as sickle-cell disease or multiple myeloma or lysosomal storage diseases, such as Gaucher's disease, will show moderately increased levels.

Human Prostate Acid Phosphatase also known as human prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP, ACP) is alternative marker to prostate specific antigen (PSA) for prostate malignancy. Rape investigations will often include testing for the presence of Human prostatic (prostate) acid phosphatase in vaginal fluid.

Human prostatic Acid phosphatase (PAP) is a phosphatase, a type of enzyme, used to free attached phosphate groups from other molecules during digestion. Acid Phosphatase is stored in lysosomes and functions when these fuse with endosomes, which are acidified while they function; therefore,Human Acid Phosphatase has an acid pH optimum below 7.0.

NCBI Summary for ACPP
This gene encodes the beta subunit of lysosomal acid phosphatase (LAP). LAP is chemically and genetically distinct from red cell acid phosphatase. The encoded protein belongs to a family of distinct isoenzymes which hydrolyze orthophosphoric monoesters to alcohol and phosphate. LAP-deficiencies in mice cause multiple defects including bone structure alterations, lysosomal storage defects in the kidneys and central nervous system, and an increased tendency towards seizures. An enzymatically-inactive allele of LAP in mice exhibited a more severe phenotype than the null allele, and defects included cerebellum abnormalities, growth retardation, hair-follicle abnormalities, and an ataxia-like phenotype. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2014]
UniProt Comments for ACPP
ACP2: Defects in ACP2 are a cause of acid phosphatase deficiency (ACPHD). The clinical features are intermittent vomiting, hypotonia, lethargy, opisthotonos, terminal bleeding, and death in early infancy. Lysosomal acid phosphatase is deficient in cultured fibroblasts and multiple tissues. Belongs to the histidine acid phosphatase family.
