The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.3 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 106 kDa.
FunctionMay provide the missing metabolic reaction required to link the mitochondria and the cytoplasm in the mammalian model of one-carbon folate metabolism in embryonic an transformed cells complementing thus the enzymatic activities of MTHFD2.
Tissue specificityDetected in most tissues, highest expression found in placenta, thymus and brain. Low expression is found in liver and skeletal muscle. Up-regulated in colon adenocarcinoma.
Sequence similaritiesIn the N-terminal section; belongs to the tetrahydrofolate dehydrogenase/cyclohydrolase family. In the C-terminal section; belongs to the formate--tetrahydrofolate ligase family.
DomainThis monofunctional enzyme consists of two major domains: an N-terminal inactive methylene-THF dehydrogenase and cyclohydrolase domain and an active larger formyl-THF synthetase C-terminal domain.
