Human FOLR1 Sandwich Immunoassay
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Detection of Human FOLR1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human cortex tissue and HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human FOLR1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5646) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for FOLR1 at approximately 40 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1. Use under non-reducing conditions only.
Detection of FOLR1 in MCF‑7 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human FOLR1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5646, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB002, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0102B).

FOLR1 in MCF-7 Human Cell Line. FOLR1 was detected in immersion fixed MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line using 10 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human FOLR1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5646) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

FOLR1 Specificity is Shown by Flow Cytometry in Knockout Cell Line. FOLR1 knockout MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human FOLR1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5646, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB002, open histogram) followed by anti-Mouse IgG PE-conjugated secondary antibody (Catalog # F0102B). No staining in the FOLR1 knockout MCF-7 cell line was observed. View our protocol for Staining Membrane-associated Proteins.

Folate Receptor 1 (FOLR1), also known as Folate Receptor alpha and Folate Binding Protein (FBP), is a 37‑42 kDa protein that mediates the cellular uptake of folic acid and reduced folates. Dietary folates are required for many key metabolic processes including nucleotide and methionine synthesis, the interconversion of glycine and serine, and histidine breakdown (1, 2). Mature FOLR1 is an N-glycosylated protein that is anchored to the cell surface by a GPI linkage (3‑6). Human FOLR1 shares 83% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat FOLR1. FOLR1 is predominantly expressed on epithelial cells and is dramatically up‑regulated on many carcinomas (7, 8). It is critically required during early embryogenesis as shown in knockout mice which die in utero with gross morphological defects (9). FOLR1 is internalized to the endosomal system where it dissociates from its ligand before recycling to the cell surface (6, 10). A soluble form of FOLR1 can be proteolytically shed from the cell surface into the serum and breast milk (11).

After very long exposure gave a band of an expected size. Very weak signal even with ECL Plus.
