  • Product overview

    Abcam's Acid Phosphatase Assay Kit (Fluorometric) uses non-fluorescent Methylumbelliferyl phosphate disodium (MUP) as the substrate which has Ex/Em=360/440 nm when dephosphorylated by AP. The kit is an ultra-sensitive, simple, direct and HTS-ready fluorometric assay designed to measure AP activity in serum and other bio-samples.

  • Notes

    The detection sensitivity is ~1 µU, more sensitive than colorimetric assays.

    The kit is suitable for both research and drug discovery.

  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: Functional Studiesmore details

Properties

  • RelevanceAcid phosphatases (AP) dephosphorylate phosphate groups from phosphate esters under acid conditions. Different acid phosphatase isozymes are found in different organs, and their serum levels are used as a diagnostic for disease in the corresponding organs. Elevated prostatic acid phosphatase levels may indicate the presence of prostate cancer and elevated tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase levels may indicate bone disease.
  • Cellular localizationACP1: Cytoplasm. ACP2: Lysosome membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. ACP5: Lysosome. ACPP: Isoform 1: Secreted. Isoform 2: Lysosome membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein.

Product Wall


For Acid Phosphatase Assay Kit ab83370, the pH of the buffer prevents alkaline phosphatase from working (ALP can only function in an alkaline pH whereas AP works in an acidic pH) so you only measure AP activity.
Acid phosphatase (AP) can depho...
