|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Other Accession||O15254, NP_000793.1|
|Calculated MW||29819 Da|
|Antigen Region||33-68 aa|
|Other Names||Folate receptor alpha, FR-alpha, Adult folate-binding protein, FBP, Folate receptor 1, Folate receptor, adult, KB cells FBP, Ovarian tumor-associated antigen MOv18, FOLR1, FOLR|
|Target/Specificity||This FOLR1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 33-68 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human FOLR1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||FOLR1 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|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.
