Immunohistochemical analyses were used to semi-quantify the expression of p53, α-methylacyl-CoA racemase (AMACR), and cyclin D1.
[Related biomarkers in the diagnosis of prostate cancer].
Liu et al., In Zhonghua Nan Ke Xue, Oct 2015
This review focuses on some of the more promising tumor biomarkers such as prostate cancer antigen 3, early prostate cancer antigen, prostate-specific membrane antigen, alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase, and vascular endothelial growth factor.

Seminal vesicle intraepithelial neoplasia versus basal cell hyperplasia in a seminal vesicle.
Scarpelli et al., Ancona, Italy. In Eur Urol, 2014
Prostate-specific antigen, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, prostein (P501S), alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase, and GATA binding protein 3 (GATA3) were negative; p63, 34betaE12, cytokeratin 5/6, and p53 were positive in cells in basal and suprabasal positions, whereas CA-125 was expressed in the luminal cells.
Lipid metabolism in prostate cancer.
Monaco et al., New York City, United States. In Am J Clin Exp Urol, 2013
A central role for fatty acid oxidation in supplying energy to the prostate cancer cell is supported by the observation that the peroxisomal enzyme, α-methylacyl-CoA racemase (AMACR), which facilitates the transformation of branched chain fatty acids to a form suitable for β-oxidation, is highly overexpressed in prostate cancer compared with normal prostate.
Recent advances of immunohistochemistry for diagnosis of renal tumors.
Nagashima et al., Kōchi, Japan. In Pathol Int, 2013
In dialysis-related RCC, neoplastic cells of acquired cystic disease-associated RCC are positive for alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase (AMACR), but negative for cytokeratin (CK) 7, whereas clear cell papillary RCC shows the inverse pattern.
