Prostatic Acid Phosphatase (ACPP or PAP) is a member of the histidine acid phosphatase family. It is suggested to act as a hydrolase to split phospharyl choline in semen and as a transferase.It is synthesized under androgen regulation and is secreted by the epithelial cells of the prostate gland. Anti-PSAP reacts with prostatic acid phosphatase in the glandular epithelium of normal and hyperplastic prostate, and adenocarcinoma of the prostate. This antibody is useful in identifying prostatic origin of tumors in the metastatic setting.
