Folic acid or folate is a B vitamin required for purine and pyrimidine synthesis, amino acid interconversions, methylation reactions, and the generation and use of formate. Folate deficiency hinders DNA synthesis and cell division, affecting hematopoietic cells and neoplasms the most because of their greater frequency of cell division. In all cases the Ref. Folic acid is essential to the formation of red blood cells in the body, which have the job of carrying oxygen to all organs, including the hair follicles in the skin. 90:1283–1287. Two different methods for the synthesis of folic acid, which are suitable for the incorporation of compounds multiply labelled with stable isotopes, are described. Jump to: navigation, search. It was first isolated via extraction from spinach leaves by Herschel K. Mitchell, Esmond E. Snell, and Roger J. Williams in 1941. Purity > 96% CAS Number. MSDS BC366DE25. [129] Much of the elder population take supplements that add 400 µg to their daily folic acid intake. [16] The term "folic" is from the Latin word folium (which means leaf) because it was found in dark-green leafy vegetables. Both play an important role together in the methylation cycle and the formation of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), the most important methyl donor in the human body. Folic acid (Folate), Synthetic vitamin B 9. This leads to megaloblastic anemia, which is characterized by large, immature red blood cells. Later, p-aminobenzoic acid was found to be an essential part of the folic acid molecule (3, 4), and it now seems quite likely that the sole metabolic function of p-aminobenzoate is to serve as a precursor for the biosynthesis of folic acid compounds. [99], The risk of toxicity from folic acid is low, because folate is a water-soluble vitamin and is regularly removed from the body through urine. [9] It occurs naturally in many foods. Deutsch. Folic acid is synthesized by bacteria from the substrate, para-amino-benzoic acid (PABA), and all cells require folic acid for growth. [67] However, several reviews reported that supplementation with folic acid alone or in combination with other B vitamins did not prevent development of cognitive impairment nor slow cognitive decline. Folic acid produces and maintains new cells. Consequently, antifolates inhibit cell division, DNA/RNA synthesis and repair and protein synthesis. Folic acid (as a vitamin in food) diffuses or is transported into mammalian cells.

[113] Fortification is controversial, with issues having been raised concerning individual liberty,[104] as well as the theorized health concerns described in the Safety section. [70], Some evidence links a shortage of folate with clinical depression. to reproduce figures, diagrams etc. [125] This ruling took effect on 1 January 1998, and was specifically targeted to reduce the risk of neural tube birth defects in newborns. The antifolate drug methotrexate is often used to treat cancer because it inhibits the production of the active tetrahydrofolate (THF) from the inactive dihydrofolate (DHF). 9.2 Mechanism of Action. [40][41] One systematic review indicated no effect of folic acid on mortality, growth, body composition, respiratory, or cognitive outcomes of children from birth to 9 years old. XX is the XXth reference in the list of references. From country to country, added folic acid amounts range from 0.4 to 5.1 μg/100 g, but the great majority are in a more narrow range of 1.5 to 2.5 μg/100 g.[36] Folate naturally found in food is susceptible to destruction from high heat cooking, especially in the presence of acidic foods and sauces. Countries have implemented either mandatory or voluntary food fortification of wheat flour and other grains,[36] or else have no such program and depend on public health and healthcare practitioner advice to women of childbearing age.
