  • Abstract The effect of ethanol on the transport of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate in freshly isolated hepatocytes in vitro resulted in about a 30% increase in accumulation of substrate. It was shown that this was not due to differences in metabolism, nor to an inhibition of efflux. Preincubation with 40 m m ethanol for 45 min resulted in a significantly increased rate of entry of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate into the cells. The stimulatory effect was specific to 5-methyltetrahydrofolate since ethanol… CONTINUE READING
