RDI Divison of Fitzgerald Industries Intl offers a wide line of antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.

Background: Dihydrofolate reductase regenerates tetrahydrofolate from dihydrofolate in the presence of NADPH. Tetrahydrofolate is the coenzyme for thymidilate synthetase in the biosynthesis of thymidine and is also critical in many other reactions, such as the synthesis of amino acids and purines. DHFR is a protein of 186 amino acids and is very conserved among different organisms. DHFR levels change during the cell cycle, with the highest content during the G1/S transition. Expression of DHFR is tightly correlated with the turnover rate of its mRNA. Because dividing cells require a continuous supply of thymidine, DHFR has been used as a target for anticancer drugs. the folic acid antagonists, aminopterin, and amethopterin (methotrexate), widely used in cancer treatments, inhibit DHFR. However, over long treatments, treated cells often amplify the DHFR gene producing drug resistant cells.
