|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||64609 Da|
|Antigen Region||304-330 aa|
|Other Names||Folylpolyglutamate synthase, mitochondrial, Folylpoly-gamma-glutamate synthetase, FPGS, Tetrahydrofolylpolyglutamate synthase, Tetrahydrofolate synthase, FPGS|
|Target/Specificity||This FPGS antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 304-330 amino acids from the Central region of human FPGS.|
|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||FPGS Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes conversion of folates to polyglutamate derivatives allowing concentration of folate compounds in the cell and the intracellular retention of these cofactors, which are important substrates for most of the folate-dependent enzymes that are involved in one-carbon transfer reactions involved in purine, pyrimidine and amino acid synthesis. Unsubstituted reduced folates are the preferred substrates. Metabolizes methotrexate (MTX) to polyglutamates.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Mitochondrion inner membrane. Mitochondrion matrix|

FPGS is the folylpolyglutamate synthetase enzyme. This enzyme has a central role in establishing and maintaining both cytosolic and mitochondrial folylpolyglutamate concentrations and, therefore, is essential for folate homeostasis and the survival of proliferating cells. This enzyme catalyzes the ATP-dependent addition of glutamate moieties to folate and folate derivatives.
