26419820 Prostatic acid phosphatase delays prostate cancer cell growth in G1 phase of the cell cycle.
25740984 Certain factors identified within semen, termed semen-derived enhancers of virus infection (SEVI), fragments of prostatic acid phosphatase, have been shown to significantly enhance HIV-1 infectivity.
24854630 GCNT1 is over-expressed in prostate cancer and is associated with higher levels of core 2 O-sLe(x) in PSA, PAP and MUC1 proteins.
24829029 ACPP increases significantly in epithelial cells of ovarian carcinoma, which indicates that it may be a candidate biomarker for diagnosis of epithelia-derived ovarian cancer in women.
24434023 Data indicate that hypoxia regulates prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) through hypoxia-inducible factor 2 alpha (HIF2alpha) and from stimulated A2B adenosine receptors.
24338683 Data indicate that prostate acid phosphatase-based peptide vaccine PAP-114-128 peptide appears to be a relevant for the treatment of prostate cancer.
23897810 Soluble ecto-5'-nucleotidase (5'-NT), alkaline phosphatase, and adenosine deaminase (ADA1) activities in neonatal blood favor elevated extracellular adenosine.
23698773 Studies suggest that understanding of prostatic acid phosphatase function and regulation of expression will have a significant impact on understanding prostate cancer (PCa) progression and therapy.
23314347 PAPf39 is a 39 residue peptide fragment from human prostatic acidic phosphatase. Recombinant PAPf39 showed amyloid fibril formation.
22354963 in the in vivo environment, PAP(248-286) is likely to form fibrils efficiently, thus providing an explanation for the presence of semen-derived enhancer of viral infection in human semen.
