The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 48 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use a concentration of 4 - 8 µg/ml.
Involvement in disease
Defects in ACP2 are a cause of acid phosphatase deficiency (ACPHD) [MIM:200950]. The clinical features are intermittent vomiting, hypotonia, lethargy, opisthotonos, terminal bleeding, and death in early infancy. Lysosomal acid phosphatase is deficient in cultured fibroblasts and multiple tissues.
Belongs to the histidine acid phosphatase family.
The membrane-bound form is converted to the soluble form by sequential proteolytic processing. First, the C-terminal cytoplasmic tail is removed. Cleavage by a lysosomal protease releases the soluble form in the lysosome lumen. N-glycosylated. The intermediates formed during enzymatic deglycosylation suggest that all eight predicted N-glycosylation sites are used.
Lysosome membrane. Lysosome lumen. The soluble form arises by proteolytic processing of the membrane-bound form.
