Recombinant Human FOLR2 Protein, CF Summary

Product Specifications

Purity
>95%, by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and visualized by silver stain.
Endotoxin Level
<0.01 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Activity
Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. When Folic Acid-Bovine Serum Albumin was coated at 5 μg/mL (100 μL/well), the concentration of Recombinant Human FOLR-2 that produces 50% of the optimal binding response was found to be <1 nM.

Chinese Hamster Ovary cell line, CHO-derived human FOLR2 protein
Gln22-His228, with a C-terminal 6-His tag
Accession #
N-terminal Sequence
Analysis
No results obtained: Gln22 predicted
Predicted Molecular Mass
25.4 kDa
SDS-PAGE
25-40 kDa, reducing conditions

Carrier Free

What does CF mean?

CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.

What formulation is right for me?

In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

Background: FOLR2

Folate Receptor 2 (FOLR2), also known as Folate Receptor beta, is a 38 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 FOLR2 is an N-glycosylated protein that is anchored to the cell surface by a GPI linkage (3, 4). Human FOLR2 shares 83% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat FOLR2. FOLR2 is predominantly expressed in placenta, cells of the neutrophilic lineage, and some CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cells (4 - 6). It is upregulated on myeloid  leukemias, head and neck squamous cell carcinomas, and several nonepithelial cancers (3, 5, 7). It is also upregulated on macrophages and monocytes at chronic inflammatory sites including rheumatoid arthritis synovium and glioblastoma (8 - 10). FOLR2 knockout mice do not show gross morphological defects, but they exhibit increased sensitivity to arsenate-induced teratogenicity (11, 12).
