Prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is a 750 amino acid type II membrane glycoprotein with folate hydrolase and neuropeptidase activity. PSMA is expressed in normal and malignant prostatic epithelium and in a subset of non-prostatic tissues. In prostate cancer, PSMA expression has been shown to correlate with disease progression, with the highest levels expressed in hormone-refractory and metastatic disease. PSMA expression has also been reported on the neovasculature of a variety of non-prostatic solid tumors.
