Immunohistological localization of prostatic acid phosphatase

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


Antisera demonstrated by precipitation and passive haemagglutination to possess antibodies specific for prostatic tissue-specific acid phosphatase have been employed to localize this isoenzyme in the prostate by indirect immunofluorescence. Antisera specific for prostatic acid phosphatase may permit the immunohistologic identification of this enzyme, thereby serving as a biological marker for metastatic prostatic cancer, when histological and/or clinical staging of the primary tumour remains questionable.
