folate receptor alpha

Gene Summary

Predicted to enable carboxylic acid binding activity; folic acid receptor activity; and signaling receptor activity. Involved in circulatory system development; nervous system development; and regulation of signal transduction. Acts upstream of or within folic acid metabolic process. Predicted to be located in several cellular components, including apical plasma membrane; basolateral plasma membrane; and brush border membrane. Predicted to be anchored component of plasma membrane. Predicted to be anchored component of external side of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; early conceptus; genitourinary system; gut; and retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cerebral folate receptor alpha deficiency. Orthologous to human FOLR1 (folate receptor alpha). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
