Prostate specific antigen (PSA), as a widely used clinical biomarker in prostate cancer

diagnostics, exists in multiple molecular forms. However, all of these forms might not be recognized in

a given sample by the standard immunoassays. Therefore, we have investigated PSA isoforms

separated by size using mass spectrometric analyses. The objective of these developments was to

identify and specify the various forms of PSA. To optimize successful identification of different PSA

forms, we have developed a bioinformatic strategy, consisting of high resolution MALDI-MS PMF and

sequencing MS/MS data searches. To improve sequence-based identification, the recently introduced

Proteios software environment was employed, allowing the combination of multiple database search

engines in an automated manner.

We could unambiguously identify PSA in clinical samples by all detectable tryptic peptides, which were

found to be common in several isoforms.
