What is the Acid Phosphatase assay used for?

Acid Phosphatase is a type of enzyme which is used to free attached phosphate groups from other molecules under acidic conditions. Human AP can be found in many tissues including; platelets, red blood cells, the liver, spleen, kidneys, intestines and bone marrow with the postpuberteral prostatic epithelial cell containing a uniquely high concentration of AP.

Human acid phosphatase can usually be found in low concentrations within the body and can usually be detected in the bloodstream. However, the discovery that prostatic carcinoma cells often retain a high concentration of AP characteristic of the normal postpubertal gland led to the recognition of the first clinically useful tumor marker. Therefore, the acid phosphatase assay is used within the clinical chemistry industry as a clinical biomarker of disease.
