Alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase, also known as AMACR, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: AMACR alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase| url =| accessdate = ]

The AMACR protein helps to metabolize certain fatty acids within the body. Several studies have suggested that AMACR can be used as a prostate cancer biomarker [Rubin MA, Bismar TA, Andren O, et al. Decreased {alpha}-methylacyl CoA racemase expression in localized prostate cancer is associated with an increased rate of biochemical recurrence and cancer-specific death. Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev 2005;14:1424–32] .
