Protein Information
Name FOLH1
Synonyms FOLH, NAALAD1, PSM, PSMA
Function Has both folate hydrolase and N-acetylated-alpha-linked- acidic dipeptidase (NAALADase) activity. Has a preference for tri- alpha-glutamate peptides. In the intestine, required for the uptake of folate. In the brain, modulates excitatory neurotransmission through the hydrolysis of the neuropeptide, N- aceylaspartylglutamate (NAAG), thereby releasing glutamate. Involved in prostate tumor progression.
Cellular Location Cell membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein
Tissue Location Highly expressed in prostate epithelium. Detected in urinary bladder, kidney, testis, ovary, fallopian tube, breast, adrenal gland, liver, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and brain (at protein level). Detected in the small intestine, brain, kidney, liver, spleen, colon, trachea, spinal cord and the capillary endothelium of a variety of tumors Expressed specifically in jejunum brush border membranes. In the brain, highly expressed in the ventral striatum and brain stem Also expressed in fetal liver and kidney. Isoform PSMA' is the most abundant form in normal prostate. Isoform PSMA-1 is the most abundant form in primary prostate tumors. Isoform PSMA-3 is also found in normal prostate as well as in brain and liver. Isoform PSMA-9 is specifically expressed in prostate cancer

Background

PSMA (Prostate-specific membrane antigen, Glutamate carboxypeptidase 2) is a membrane peptidase expressed in the prostate, central and peripheral nervous system, kidney, and small intestine (1). PSMA has both folate hydrolase and N-acetylated-alpha-linked-acidic dipeptidase (NAALADase) activity. It is required in the intestine for the uptake of folate, and in the brain it modulates excitatory neurotransmission through the hydrolysis of the neuropeptide N-acetylaspartylglutamate (NAAG), thereby releasing glutamate (2). In the central nervous system, it is responsible for the cleavage of N-acetyl- L-aspartyl-L-glutamate yielding free glutamate in the synaptic cleft, and is implicated in various pathologic conditions associated with glutamate excitotoxicity (1). PSMA also has abundant and restricted expression on the surface of prostate carcinomas and the neovasculature of most other solid tumors, making it a target for cancer immunotherapy (3).
