Locus Description: ACP1 encodes acid phosphatase 1. The functionality of acid phosphatase 1 is to hydrolyze protein tyrosine phosphate to protein tyrosine and orthophosphate. Hopkinson et al. (1963) described three alleles (ACP1(A), ACP1(B), and ACP1(C))involved a new human erythrocyte acid phosphatase polymorphism. Another rare allele, P(r), was described by Giblett and Scott (1965). Sensabaugh and Golden (1978) [PubMed ID: 736044] showed that ACP1 is inhibited by folic acid and various folates, and that the inhibition is phenotype dependent: ACP1(C) more than ACP1(A) more than ACP1(B). Bryson et al. (1995) [PubMed ID: 8586411] showed that ACP1 locus contains 7 exons spanning 18 kb with a GC-rich promoter. Alternative splicing of exons 3 and 4 was shown to account for 2 different isozymes (f and s). Lothe et al. (1986) [PubMed ID: 3481680] found that ACP1 is very closely linked to D2S1, which maps to chromosome 2 at 2pter-p23. By using fluorescence in situ hybridization, Bryson et al. (1995) [PMID: 8586411] located the ACP1 locus to the distal portion of 2p25.
