Prostate specific acid phosphatase/human prostatic acid phosphatse (PSAP/HPAP) is a 100kDa glycoprotein present in high concentration in the prostate gland and its secretions. PSAP is specific to the benign or malignant epithelial cells of the prostate gland. Prostatic stroma, urethra and the basal cells stain negatively. Also, epithelial cells injured due to inflammation, infarction, etc. and areas of squamous metaplasia of the prostatic acini show loss of PSAP activity. Nearly all metastases of prostatic carcinoma, irrespective of site, demonstrate PSAP immunoreactivity.
