  Domain Name: HP_HAP_like
Histidine phosphatase domain found in histidine acid phosphatases and phytases; contains a His residue which is phosphorylated during the reaction. Catalytic domain of HAP (histidine acid phosphatases) and phytases (myo-inositol hexakisphosphate phosphohydrolases). The conserved catalytic core of this domain contains a His residue which is phosphorylated in the reaction. Functions in this subgroup include roles in metabolism, signaling, or regulation, for example Escherichia coli glucose-1-phosphatase functions to scavenge glucose from glucose-1-phosphate and the signaling molecules inositol 1,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate (InsP5) and inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6) are in vivo substrates for eukaryotic multiple inositol polyphosphate phosphatase 1 (Minpp1). Phytases scavenge phosphate from extracellular sources and are added to animal feed while prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) has been used for many years as a serum marker for prostate cancer. Recently PAP has been shown in mouse models to suppress pain by functioning as an ecto-5prime-nucleotidase. In vivo it dephosphorylates extracellular adenosine monophosphate (AMP) generating adenosine,and leading to the activation of A1-adenosine receptors in dorsal spinal cord.
