|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||44566 Da|
|Other Names||Prostatic acid phosphatase, PAP, 5'-nucleotidase, 5'-NT, Ecto-5'-nucleotidase, Thiamine monophosphatase, TMPase, PAPf39, ACPP|
|Target/Specificity||This ACPP antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 313-341 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human ACPP.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ACPP Antibody (C-term) 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.|

ACPP is an enzyme which 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.
