PSMA (prostate specific membrane antigen) is a 100-120kD type II, integral membrane glycoprotein,1 composed of a 19 amino acid intracellular domain containing the N-terminus, a 24 amino acid transmembrane region, and a 707 amino acid extracellular C-terminal domain. The PSMA gene has been cloned and sequenced, and has been localized to chromosome 11q. Three functionally distinct proteins are encoded, including folylpoly-gamma-glutamate carboxypeptidase in the intestine, N-acetylated alpha-linked acidic dipeptidase 1 in the brain, and prostate-specific membrane antigen in the prostate.
