Prostate Specific Antigen antibody | OTI1A1
Kallikreins are a subgroup of serine proteases having diverse physiological functions. Growing evidence suggests that many kallikreins are implicated in carcinogenesis and some have potential as novel cancer and other disease biomarkers. KLK3 gene is one of the fifteen kallikrein subfamily members located in a cluster on chromosome 19. A product of the KLK3 gene, PSA is a protease present in seminal plasma. It is thought to function normally in the liquefaction of seminal coagulum, presumably by hydrolysis of the high molecular mass seminal vesicle protein. Serum level of PSA, in the clinical setting, is useful in the diagnosis and monitoring of prostatic carcinoma. Alternate splicing of KLK3 generates several transcript variants encoding different isoforms (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008).
