Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen Information for Pathologists
750 Amino acid, 100 KDa, type II membrane glycoprotein with both folate hydrolase and N-acetylated-alpha-linked-acidic peptidase (NAALAD) activity. Assists with folate uptake and modulates excitatory neurotransmissions in brain. In contrast to PSA, upregulated with androgen deprivation (Rev Urol 2004;6:S13).

Common Uses By Pathologists:
Serum PSMA: detected in serum by RT-PCR, but its role in prostatic carcinoma screening is controversial (Prostate 1998;36:181, Clin Cancer Res 1999;5:4034). Tissue PSMA:. Expressed in high grade prostatic adenocarcinoma, in contrast to PSA. PSMA / PSA ratio by IHC. Almost equal in normal prostate.
