Folate is an essential cofactor for normal cellular proliferation and tissue regeneration. Alcohol-associated folate deficiency is common, primarily due to intestinal malabsorption, the mechanism of which needs attention. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the regulatory events of folate transport in experimental alcohol ingestion. For this, male Wistar rats were fed 1 g/kg body weight/day ethanol (20% solution) orally for 3 months and folate transport was studied in isolated… CONTINUE READING
