Mesothelin is a tumor differentiation antigen that is present on the surface of normal mesothelial cells lining the pleura, peritoneum and pericardium. It is over expressed in many human tumors, including malignant mesothelioma and ovarian, pancreatic and lung adenocarcinomas (1). The normal biologic function of mesothelin is unknown but recent studies have shown that it forms a strong and specific complex with MUC16; a binding which has been suggested to be the basis of ovarian cancer metastasis (2). Initially, mesothelin is produced as a polypeptide with a hydrophobic tail which is removed and replaced by phosphatidylinositol. After glycosylation at the one or more of its four putative N-linked glycosylation sites, it is cleaved by a protease to yield the 40 kDa fragment (or doublet) (3). Antibodies against MSLN are detected in patients with mesothelioma and ovarian cancer (4).
