Acid phosphatases are enzymes capable of hydrolyzing orthophosphoric acid esters in an acid medium. This gene is up-regulated by androgens and is down-regulated by estrogens in the prostate cancer cell line. This gene exhibits a lower level of expression in testicular cancer tissues than in normal tissues. The protein encoded by this gene has structural similarity to prostatic and lysosomal acid phosphatases. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described, but their biological validity has not been determined.
ACPT has several biochemical functions, for example, acid phosphatase activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by ACPT itself. We selected most functions ACPT had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with ACPT. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
