lysosomal acid phosphatase
Clinical and biological aspects of acid phosphatase.
London, United Kingdom. In Crit Rev Clin Lab Sci, 1994
The prostatic form has long been used as a marker for prostatic cancer and the macrophagic forms have been linked with miscellaneous disorders, notably increased osteolysis, Gaucher's disease of spleen, and hairy cell leukemia, whereas the normal levels of intravesical lysosomal acid phosphatase in I cell disease pointed the way toward the mechanisms underlying its intracellular processing.
Biogenesis of lysosomal membranes.
Göttingen, Germany. In Febs Lett, 1994
Besides resident proteins the lysosomal membrane harbours at least one transient passenger, lysosomal acid phosphatase, which is sorted as a membrane-bound precursor like resident lysosomal membrane proteins and liberated from the membrane by limited proteolysis upon arrival in dense lysosomes.
