This gene encodes a member of the folate receptor (FOLR) family members of which have a high affinity for folic acid and for several reduced folic acid derivatives and mediate delivery of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate to the interior of cells. This gene includes two polymorphic variants; the shorter one has two base deletion in the CDS resulting in a truncated polypeptide compared to the longer one. Both protein products are constitutively secreted in hematopoietic tissues and are potential serum marker for certain hematopoietic malignancies. The longer protein has a 71% and 79% sequence homology with the FOLR1 and FOLR2 proteins respectively. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
