Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen antibody | GCP-04
Nomenclature for GCPII is dependent upon tissue specificity. PSMA is assigned to GCPII of prostate origin which is up-regulated in prostate cancer and a reliable diagnostic marker. Folate hydrolase (FOLH1) describes GCPII in the intestine and is required for folate uptake, whilst NAALADase refers to GCPII expressed in the central nervous system, which acts to cleave N-acetylaspartylglutamate (NAAG) to release glutamate, implicated in pathological conditions including Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease.
