Saporin toxin-conjugated monoclonal antibody targeting prostate-specific membrane antigen has potent anticancer activity.

Kuroda K, Liu H, Kim S, Guo M, Navarro V, Bander NH (2010) Saporin toxin-conjugated monoclonal antibody targeting prostate-specific membrane antigen has potent anticancer activity. Prostate 70(12):1286-1294. doi: 10.1002/pros.21164

Summary: Current treatments for prostate cancer are only moderately effective. In this work the authors examined the cytotoxic efficacy of an anti-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PMSA) antibody conjugated to saporin on PMSA-positive cell lines. hJ591, a humanized anti-PMSA antibody, was biotinylated and combined with streptavidin-ZAP (Cat. #IT-27). The hJ591-streptavidin-ZAP complex was specifically cytotoxic to PMSA-positive cell lines, and had anti-cancer activity in a xenograft model. This work demonstrates the anti-cancer potential of targeting PMSA.
