26617855 Suppression of FOLR1 by RNA interference altered gene expression profile of taxol-resistant nasopharyngeal carcinoma cells. Apoptosis-related genes, gene alterations in viral carcinogenesis/MAPK pathways may be important for taxol resistance reversal.
26606305 This new protocol opens an effective way through synthesis and design of novel fluorescent nano-conjugates for FR expression investigation in tumor cells via targeted imaging, showing great potential in drug delivery mechanism study and cancer therapy
26359629 Suggest RNA CAR T cell therapy for the treatment of common epithelial cancers expressing folate receptor-alpha.
26191275 Suggest that FRalpha overexpression may play a role in the endometrioid endometrium carcinoma carcinogenesis and carcinoma progression from endometrial hyperplasia.
26149693 Folate receptor expression on murine and human adipose tissue macrophages
26014017 The overexpression of folate receptor alpha mRNA was associated with growth of pituitary adenomas.
25971554 we confirmed the similarities between epithelial ovarian cancer and fallopian tube, normal and adenocarcinoma using FOLR1, FOLR2, CD68 and CD11b markers
25904506 Findings suggest the clinical development of IMGN853 as a novel targeted therapy for patients with folate receptor alpha (FRalpha)-expressing tumors.
25816016 triple negative/basal tumors were significantly associated with increased expression of FOLR1 mRNA, compared to ER+ and HER2+ tumors.
25697897 this is the first study to simultaneously evaluate both DNA methylation and protein expression of all three folate transporter genes, FOLR1, PCFT, and RFC1, in colorectal cancer.
