Characterization of binding of folates and antifolates to brush-border membrane vesicles isolated from human kidney.

Abstract

Antifolates such as methotrexate, raltitrexed, and pemetrexed are among the most effective and widely used anticancer drugs. The antifolates are also among the most unpredictable of anticancer drugs with respect to pharmacokinetics and toxicity.
