Mechanism of Action
Because folic acid is biochemically inactive, is converted to tetrahydrogolic acid and methyltetrahydrofolate through dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR). The folic acid congeners are then transported across the cells by the receptor-mediated endocytosis where they are used to maintain normal erythropoiesis, synthesize purine and thymidylate nucleic acids, interconvert amino acids, methylate tRNA, and generate and use formate. With the help of vitamin B12 acting as a cofactor, folic acid can also normalize high homocysteine levels by remethylation of homocysteine to methionine via methionine synthetase.
