Prostatic glycoprotein was detected in the vaginal fluid of a male pseudohermaphrodite with use of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Following orchiectomy, prostatic glycoprotein concentrations fell from levels greater than 60 to less than 10.0 ng/ml. The decline in prostatic glycoprotein levels postoperatively implies that prostatic glycoprotein expression is controlled by androgens.
