- CITATIONS: 2
|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||29280 Da|
|Antigen Region||18-46 aa|
|Other Names||Folate receptor beta, FR-beta, Folate receptor 2, Folate receptor, fetal/placental, Placental folate-binding protein, FBP, FOLR2|
|Target/Specificity||This FOLR2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 18-46 amino acids of human FOLR2.|
|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||FOLR2 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.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor, GPI-anchor. Secreted|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in placenta and hematopoietic cells. Expression is increased in malignant tissues|

FOLR2 is a member of the folate receptor (FOLR) family, and these genes exist in a cluster on chromosome 11. Members of this gene family have a high affinity for folic acid and for several reduced folic acid derivatives, and they mediate delivery of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate to the interior of cells. This protein has a 68% and 79% sequence homology with the FOLR1 and FOLR3 proteins, respectively. Although this protein was originally thought to be specific to placenta, it can also exist in other tissues, and it may play a role in the transport of methotrexate in synovial macrophages in rheumatoid arthritis patients.
