ACPP | GeneID:55 | Homo sapiens

Gene Summary

[ - ] NCBI Entrez Gene

Gene ID 55 Official Symbol ACPP
Locus N/A Gene Type protein-coding
Synonyms ACP-3; ACP3; PAP
Full Name acid phosphatase, prostate
Description acid phosphatase, prostate
Chromosome 3q21-q23
Also Known As prostatic acid phosphotase
Summary This gene encodes an enzyme that 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. An alternatively spliced transcript variant encoding a longer isoform has been found for this gene. This isoform contains a transmembrane domain and is localized in the plasma membrane-endosomal-lysosomal pathway. [provided by RefSeq]
