Technical Data
AMACR (Alpha-methylacyl-CoA Racemase, 2-methylacyl-CoA Racemase)
Alpha-methyacyl-CoA racemase (AMCR), is an enzyme invloved in beta oxidation of branched chain fatty acids and bile salt intermediates, and has recently been identified as a neomarker for prostate cancer, where it is over expressed. Several different isoforms have been reported that are produced either by extensinve alternatve splicing of 5 exons or by use of alternate initiation codons. At least 2 different transcripts, each derived from the 5 exons, have been reported, AMCR I and AMCR II. AMCR I is the most abundant form and enclodes for a 382aa protein (42kD). The other isoform AMCR II exhibits significant homolgy to fumarate hydratase and encodes a 288aa protein (32kD). Several other variants of IA and IIA isoforms have been characterized recently.
