Expression of Alpha-Methylacyl-Coenzyme A Racemase
in Nephrogenic Adenoma.
The role of alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase
in bile acid synthesis.
Genetic variations of a-Methylacyl-CoA Racemase
are associated with sporadic prostate cancer risk in ethnically homogenous Koreans.
However, this hypothesis does not consider alternative sources of D-serine like microglia, in which both serine racemase
and D-serine are also found.

: a new molecular marker for prostate cancer.
The most common adenocarcinomas metastatic to the bladder are from the prostate, therefore, markers PSA (prostate specific antigen) and AMACR (alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase
) which are positive for prostate origin, were performed.
According to Roche, elevated expression of p504s, which is also known as ?-methylacyl-CoA racemase
(AMACR), has become a useful biomarker in the diagnosis of prostate adenocarcinoma1.
The immunostaining results were almost the same as the first specimen: SMA (+), CD117 (+) (1+) 100%, CD34 diffuse (+) 100%, smoothelin (-) some isolated cells, [alpha]-methylacyl coenzyme A racemase
(-), Keratin AE1/AE3 mildly-focal (+), S100 (-), estrogen and progesterone receptor (-), desmin focal (+).
Three unique proteins involved in peptidoglycan biosynthesis within Salmonella Poona species were found to be inhibited by drugs, namely, alanine racemase
, UDP-N-acetyl glucosamine 1-carboxyvinyltransferase and penicillin-binding protein 2.

LCNEC is strongly positive for CD56, CD57, Chromogranin A, synaptophysin, and P504S/alpha methylacyl CoA racemase
. Unfortunately as previous investigations and treatment for his prostate cancer were performed in another tertiary oncology unit, we could not get histological images for this publication.
