Application

Acid phosphatase is routinely used to dephosphorylate proteins and nucleic acids. Acid phosphatase is an acid hydrolase that normally resides in lysosomes. It is used as marker for the identification of lysosomes in subcellular fractionations. Acid phosphatase, product P3752, has been used as a control in order to study how Mycobacterium bovis BCG effects the levels of acid phosphatase activity in alveolar macrophages.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Acid phosphatase is a cytoplasmic lysosomal hydrolase that catalyzes the conversion of an orthophosphoric monoester and water to an alcohol and orthophosphate.

Unit Definition
