  • The ternary complex method for the determination of folylpolyglutamates was combined with procedures for interconverting folate derivatives to measure 28 different folate derivatives in the subcellular fractions of rat liver. Folates in the homogenate showed a typical distribution with nearly equal quantities of penta- and hexaglutamates and pteridine derivatives in decreasing order as follows: 1) methyl substituted folates [5-methyltetrahydropteroylglutamates], 2) unsubstituted folates… CONTINUE READING
