DHFR is the target of the antimalarial pyrimethamine -- a drug to which malaria parasites are increasingly developing resistance, particularly in Africa.
falciparum clone Ser108Asn is the most effective mutation at DHFR domain (Cowman et al.
Since the HC had been integrated into the CHO DG44 genome coupled with DHFR gene; genomic amplification using MTX was used for increasing the HC gene copy number.
This speculation has been supported by several lines of evidence, such as 1) unmodified glycans are poorly glucosylated by UGGT, 2) M9 containing n-propyl, a modestly hydrophobic aglycon, was marginally reactive, and 3) the reactivity of M9-MTX was markedly attenuated when it was conjugated with DHFR.
Almost every living organism has a version of DHFR, because it is an enzyme needed at a critical step in a pathway that takes folic acid and turns it into thymidine, one of the four building blocks of DNA-the "T" in the A-C-G-T nucleotides.
Overproduction of DHFR provides cancer cells with a defense against methotrexate.
