The anti-angiogenic basis of metronomic chemotherapy
In addition to proliferating cancer cells and various types of normal cells, such as those of the bone marrow, conventional cytotoxic chemotherapeutics affect the endothelium of the growing tumourExpand

Mice lacking the folic acid-binding protein Folbp1 are defective in early embryonic development
Periconceptional folic acid supplementation reduces the occurrence of several human congenital malformations, including craniofacial, heart and neural tube defects. Although the underlying mechanismExpand

Protein kinase C activators inhibit receptor-mediated potocytosis by preventing internalization of caveolae
Potocytosis is an endocytic pathway that utilizes glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored membrane proteins and caveolae to concentrate and internalize small molecules. We now report that activators ofExpand

A review of folate receptor alpha cycling and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate accumulation with an emphasis on cell models in vitro.
Folate receptor alpha (FRalpha), a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol linked protein with a great affinity for folic acid and some reduced folates such as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate and tetrahydrofolate isExpand

Cholesterol controls the clustering of the glycophospholipid-anchored membrane receptor for 5-methyltetrahydrofolate
The folate receptor is a glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored membrane protein that mediates the delivery of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate to the cytoplasm of MA104 cells. Ordinarily the receptorExpand

The glycophospholipid-linked folate receptor internalizes folate without entering the clathrin-coated pit endocytic pathway
The folate receptor, also known as the membrane folate-binding protein, is maximally expressed on the surface of folate-depleted tissue culture cells and mediates the high affinity accumulation of 5-Expand

Targeting Ras signaling through inhibition of carboxyl methylation: An unexpected property of methotrexate
The antifolate methotrexate is one of the most successful drugs in cancer chemotherapy. Although its efficacy is widely attributed to a decrease in nucleotide biosynthesis (1), methotrexate is knownExpand

DEXTROMETHORPHAN IS EFFECTIVE IN THE TREATMENT OF SUBACUTE METHOTREXATE NEUROTOXICITY
Methotrexate-induced neurotoxicity (MTX-Ntox) is a frequent complication of methotrexate (MTX) therapy for patients with both malignant and inflammatory diseases. MTX-Ntox can occur after intrathecalExpand

Distribution of the folate receptor GP38 in normal and malignant cell lines and tissues.
In some epithelial cells studied in vitro a membrane-bound folate receptor initiates the process for cell accumulation of 5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid. This receptor was found to be GP38, anExpand
