Amethopterin has been shown to be a folic acid antagonist in certain organisms (Franklin et al., 1948; Hitchings et al., 1952; Collier and Phillips, 1954). Hakala and Welch (1957) extracted a triglutamate form of folinic acid from Bacillus subtilis but these investigators did not study the possible antagonism of this compound and amethopterin in the same organism. In B. subtilis, the test organism of this investigation, amethopterin was inhibitory, but no form of folic acid tested was found to…

Some 2 : 4-Diaminopteridines as Folinic Acid Antagonists

Accepting the view that the antifolinic acid activity of amethopterin is related to its therapeutic effect in leukæmia, a number of 2 : 4-diamino-pteridines already known to be antagonists of pteroylglutamic acid are explored with the view of their possible clinical use.
