Prostate stem cell antigen

PSCA, Prostate stem cell antigen
This gene encodes a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored cell membrane glycoprotein. In addition to being highly expressed in the prostate it is also expressed in the bladder, placenta, colon, kidney, and stomach. This gene is up-regulated in a large proportion of prostate cancers and is also detected in cancers of the bladder and pancreas. This gene includes a polymorphism that results in an upstream start codon in some individuals; this polymorphism is thought to be associated with a risk for certain gastric and bladder cancers. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010] (from NCBI)

PSCA acts as a tumor suppressor by facilitating the nuclear translocation of RB1CC1 in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
Fu et al., Hong Kong, Hong Kong. In Carcinogenesis, Feb 2016
By high-throughput transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq) profiling of 3 pairs of primary ESCCs and their corresponding nontumorous tissues, we identified prostate stem cell antigen (PSCA), a gene that encodes a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchored protein, is significantly down-regulated in ESCC.
