Previously (1, 6), it was shown that prefolic A, in crude form, was converted to N5-formyltetrahydrofolic acid by two separate enzymatic reactions. First, in the presence of a suitable electron acceptor, prefolic A is converted to tetrahydrofolic acid by a flavin adenine dinucleotide-linked enzyme system. Then, in the presence of transformylase and formyl-L-glutamate, tetrahydrofolic acid is formylated to N5-formyltetrahydrofolic acid. The conversion of prefolic A to tetrahydrofolic acid was… CONTINUE READING
