  • WB - FOLR1 Antibody (N-term) AP10693a
    Western blot analysis of lysate from Hela cell line, using FOLR1 Antibody (N-term)(Cat. #AP10693a). AP10693a was diluted at 1:1000. A goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L(HRP) at 1:5000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Lysate at 35ug.
  • IHC-P - FOLR1 Antibody (N-term) AP10693a
    FOLR1 antibody (N-term) (Cat. #AP10693a) immunohistochemistry analysis in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded human kidney tissue followed by peroxidase conjugation of the secondary antibody and DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of the FOLR1 antibody (N-term) for immunohistochemistry. Clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • FC - FOLR1 Antibody (N-term) AP10693a
    FOLR1 Antibody (N-term) (Cat. #AP10693a) flow cytometric analysis of Hela cells (right histogram) compared to a negative control cell (left histogram).FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.

Protein Information
Name FOLR1
Synonyms FOLR
Function Binds to folate and reduced folic acid derivatives and mediates delivery of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate and folate analogs into the interior of cells. Has high affinity for folate and folic acid analogs at neutral pH. Exposure to slightly acidic pH after receptor endocytosis triggers a conformation change that strongly reduces its affinity for folates and mediates their release. Required for normal embryonic development and normal cell proliferation.
Cellular Location Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor, GPI-anchor. Secreted. Cytoplasmic vesicle. Cytoplasmic vesicle, clathrin-coated vesicle. Endosome. Apical cell membrane. Note=Endocytosed into cytoplasmic vesicles and then recycled to the cell membrane
Tissue Location Primarily expressed in tissues of epithelial origin. Expression is increased in malignant tissues. Expressed in kidney, lung and cerebellum. Detected in placenta and thymus epithelium.

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the folate receptor family. Members of this gene family bind folic acid and its reduced derivatives, and transport 5-methyltetrahydrofolate into cells. This gene product is a secreted protein that either anchors to membranes via a glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol linkage or exists in a soluble form. Mutations in this gene have been associated with neurodegeneration due to cerebral folate transport deficiency. Due to the presence of two promoters, multiple transcription start sites, and alternative splicing, multiple transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.
