Prostatic Steroid-Binding Protein (PSB)

Part of the Monographs on Endocrinology book series (ENDOCRINOLOGY, volume 27)


The ventral prostate of the rat secretes relatively large amounts of a steroidbinding protein whose synthesis is androgen-dependent, and which is distinct from steroid receptors. It is generally called prostatic steroid-binding protein or simply prostatic binding protein. This latter name has generated the abbreviation PBP, unfortunately, because PBP has been proposed years ago and is being used as a short term for the progesterone-binding protein of the pregnant guinea pig, a globulin that is abbreviated PBG in this monograph. For convenience and to avoid confusion with any other steroid binding protein, the abbreviation PSB, prostatic steroid binder, will be used in the present volume.
