Low PCFT expression is associated with treatment response in mesothelioma.
our results demonstrate the substantial therapeutic potential of novel 6-substituted pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine antifolates with dual targeting of PCFT and FRalpha toward Epithelial ovarian cancer that express a range of FRalpha, along with PCFT, as well as cisplatin resistance
We found that purified detergent solubilized PCFT was able to bind folic acid, thus indicating a functionally active protein. To assess the oligomeric state negative stain electron microscopy was performed which showed a particle with the size of a PCFT dimer.
The 8th transmembrane helix of PCFT plays an important role in defining the aqueous channel and the folate binding pocket.
The hydrophobicity of the PCFT W299 residue is important for function suggesting that during the transport cycle this residue interacts with the lipid membrane thereby impacting on the oscillation of the carrier and, indirectly, on the folate binding pocket.
we observed nominally significant (but not definitive) associations between SLC46A1 SNPs and NTDs and oral clefts, and this finding warrants follow-up in other populations.
A homology model of PCFT, based upon the Escherichia coliglycerol 3-phosphate transporter structure, predicted that PCFT transmembrane domains (TMDs) 1, 2, 7, and 11 form an extracellular gate in the inward-open conformation.
We conclude that SLC46A1/PCFT and SLC19A1/RFC-1 (show SLC19A1 Proteins) are associated with DFS (show FST Proteins) of patients with colorectal cancer and hypothesize that poor response to 5-fluorouracil plus leucovorin therapy in some patients may be linked to low expression of these genes.
Report sustained inhibition of PCFT by myricetin.
this is the first study to simultaneously evaluate both DNA methylation (show HELLS Proteins) and protein expression of all three folate transporter genes, FOLR1 (show FOLR1 Proteins), PCFT, and RFC1 (show RFC1 Proteins), in colorectal cancer.
Functional regulation of P-glycoprotein at the blood-brain barrier in proton-coupled folate transporter (PCFT) mutant mice.
Hemochromatosis (show HFE Proteins) is associated not only with excessive accumulation of free iron in the retina and retinal pigment epithelium but also with excessive accumulation of heme.
In vivo folate uptake experiments demonstrated a systemic folate deficiency caused by disruption of PCFT-mediated intestinal folate uptake, thus confirming in vivo a critical role of the PCFT protein in intestinal folate transport and erythropoiesis.
heme carrier protein 1(HCP 1)is the long-sought intestinal heme transporter and was iron regulated and localized to the brush-border membrane of duodenal enterocytes in iron deficiency. Its mRNA was expressed in duodenum and regulated by hypoxia
Slc46a1/PCFT plays critical role in intestinal folate absorption.
Intestinal folate uptake process undergoes differentiation-dependent regulation and that this regulation is mediated via changes in the level of expression of both the RFC (show SLC19A1 Proteins) and PCFT.
This gene encodes a transmembrane proton-coupled folate transporter protein that facilitates the movement of folate and antifolate substrates across cell membranes, optimally in acidic pH environments. This protein is also expressed in the brain and choroid plexus where it transports folates into the central nervous system. This protein further functions as a heme transporter in duodenal enterocytes, and potentially in other tissues like liver and kidney. Its localization to the apical membrane or cytoplasm of intestinal cells is modulated by dietary iron levels. Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal recessive hereditary folate malabsorption (HFM) disease. HFM is characterized by folate deficiency due to reduced intestinal folate absorption and subsequent anemia, hypoimmunoglobulinemia, and recurrent infections. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene.
