Indiana University Bloomington researchers detail specific properties of human folate receptor proteins

A team of researchers led by Charles Dann III, assistant professor of chemistry at the Indiana University Bloomington College of Arts and Sciences, studied human folate receptor proteins and recently revealed the proteins’ specific molecular properties, a discovery with potential to improve antifolate drug development and therefore impact patients diagnosed with epithelial cell cancers.

Study results are published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
