Human prostatic acid phosphatase was dissociated into subunits and the subunits further cleaved by cyanogen bromide. The subunits and cyanogen bromide-derived peptides were catalytlcally inactive. In the presence of specific antibodies directed against human prostatic acid phosphatase, both the subunit polypeptides and one of the cyanogen bromide-derived peptides (C5) regained catalytic activity.
