  • Referee: S Hill, McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada Folic acid is an essential nutrient from the B complex group of vitamins. Folate, as a cofactor, is involved in numerous intracellular reactions, and this is reflected in the various derivatives that have been isolated from biological sources. Folic acid is involved in single carbon transfer reactions and serves as a source of single carbon units in different oxidative states. The processes involved in the absorption, transport, and… CONTINUE READING
