Prostatic Acid Phosphatase or ACPP is part of a family of proteins called histidine acid phosphatase. ACPP enhances the hydrolyzation of many phosphate monoesters and proteins that are phosphorylated. In order to function best, ACPP needs a range of range of 4-6 pH, furthermore, L(+)-tartrate inhibits ACPP’s catalyzation. This enzyme can act as a lipid phosphatase as well and can inhibit lysophosphatidic acid in seminal plasma.
ACPP Mouse produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 356 amino acids (32-381 aa) and having a molecular mass of 41.3kDa.
ACPP is fused to a 6 amino acid His tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The ACPP solution (0.5mg/ml) contains 10% Glycerol and Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4).
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Specific activity is >80,000 unit/mg, and is defined as the amount of enzyme that hydrolyze 1.0nmole of pnitrophenyl phosphate (pNPP) per minute at pH 5.0 at 37C.
