Numerous investigators have found several substrates and inhibitors to be particularly suited for the demonstration of acid phosphatase of prostatic origin. There has been much controversy over the specificity or lack of specificity of several substrates and inhibitors. The authors investigated acid phosphatase activities obtained from several kinds of purified cells. None of the substrates or inhibitors studied allowed a discrimination of 'prostatic' acid phosphatase from acid phosphatase activities obtained from other kinds of cells.
