Identification
Name5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid
Accession NumberDB04789
TypeSmall Molecule
GroupsNutraceutical
Description5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid is a methylated derivate of tetrahydrofolate. It is generated by methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase from 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate and used to recycle homocysteine back to methionine by 5-methyltetrahydrofolate-homocysteine methyltransferases (also called methionine synthases).
