Human FOLR3 Antibody Summary
Accession # NP_000795
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 FOLR3 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of JEG‑3 human epithelial choriocarcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human FOLR3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5319) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (HAF018). A specific band was detected for FOLR3 at approximately 36 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Western Blot Buffer Group 2.

Folate receptor 3 (FOLR3), also known as folate receptor gamma, is a 32 kDa protein that binds 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). Mature FOLR3 is a glycosylated protein that contains an imperfect carboxy terminal GPI anchor sequence (2, 3). A fraction of FOLR3 is GPI-linked to the cell surface, but the majority is released as a secreted protein (2). Mature human FOLR3 shares 74% and 83% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with FOLR1 and FOLR2, respectively. Orthologs of human FOLR3 have not been described in mouse or rat. A genetic polymorphism generates a truncated isoform that lacks the carboxy terminal 139 aa (2, 4). FOLR3 is expressed by cells of the myelocyte and B lymphocyte lineage as well as by various carcinomas (2, 3). FOLR3 is more highly expressed in ovarian carcinomas than in breast carcinomas or mesotheliomas (5). Unlike other folate receptors, FOLR3 does not exhibit stereoselectivity in the binding of folates (3).
