Prostatic acid phosphatase assay with self-indicating substrate 2,6-dichloro-4-acetylphenyl phosphate.

We characterized six self-indicating substrates, synthesized as the derivative compounds of acetylphenyl phosphate, for serum prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) activity. One of the substrates, 2,6-dichloro-4-acetylphenyl phosphate (DCAPP), is superior to others in terms of stability, affinity, and low Km for PAP. The hydrolyzed product, 2,6-dichloro-4… CONTINUE READING
