BiomedicalThyroid ConnectionCommunity Library Folate Receptor Alpha Autoantibodies Modulate Thyroid Function in Autism Spectrum Disorder, Dan Rossignol, MD et. al.: The folate receptor alpha (FRa) is essential for folate transportation across the blood-brain barrier and is closely associated with cerebral folate deficiency, a syndrome that commonly presents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) features. Since the FRa is also located on the thyroid, FRAAs could also interfere with thyroid function. These results are consistent with the notion that blocking FRAAs are associated with reduced thyroid function and suggest that thyroid function should be examined in children with ASD who are positive for the blocking FRAAs.
