AMACR (RM), 3X is being discontinued. We will continue to offer these products until 06/30/16 or until current inventory is depleted, whichever occurs first. Biocare does offer AMACR (RM) or AMACR (RM), 2X, catalog numbers APA3024, OAA3024 or APA3016 as a substitute.

α-Methylacyl coenzyme A racemase (AMACR Antibody), also known as P504S, is a peroxisomal and mitochondrial enzyme that plays a role in bile acid synthesis and β-oxidation of branched chain fatty acids. In immunohistochemistry, AMACR Antibody has been shown to be a specific marker of prostatic adenocarcinoma. Additionally, prostate glands involved in PIN have been found to express AMACR, whereas AMACR was nearly undetectable in benign glands. AMACR + CK5/14 may be used to assess neoplasia in prostate biopsies. AMACR Antibody stains the majority of prostate cancer; however, AMACR has been shown to stain many other types of carcinomas such as hepatomas, breast carcinomas, pancreatic and islet tumors.
