1. The effects of dietary biotin compared with vitamin B(12) on the total content and on the distribution of the various folate derivatives in the liver of rats given a biotin-free diet have been studied. The effect of both vitamins on the conversion in vitro of folic acid into citrovorum factor in the same experimental conditions was also examined. 2. In biotin-treated rats as well as in vitamin B(12)-treated rats the total content of folic acid-active substances measured microbiologically by…

An impaired conversion of folic acid to N5 methyltetrahydrofolic acid in the liver was observed in rats with riboflavin deficiency, and this occurred shortly after an intramuscular injection of pteroylglutamic acid.

A microbiological assay system for naturally occurring folates.

For the first time nonformylated tetrahydrofolic acid is shown to be a major form of folic acid in rat liver, along with N5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid. A system of differential microbiological assays
