    Folate content in eggs from three different breeds of hens fed with three different feeds, one organic and two conventional, was compared using a simplified microbiological assay. Retention of folate when boiling the eggs was also studied. Folate content in eggs did not differ significantly due...

    Seven varieties of Tajik legumes and two Tajik snack type ready-to-eat (RTE) whole/split chickpeas were analyzed for iron in raw and cooked legumes and for naturally occurring folate content in cooked legumes. Iron was measured according to AACC method 40 - 41B. Folate contents were determined...

    Serum and erythrocyte (RBC) total folate are indicators of folate status. No nationally representative population data exist for folate forms. We measured the serum folate forms (5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-methylTHF), unmetabolised folic acid (UMFA), non-methyl folate (sum of tetrahydrofolate...

    Purpose: To investigate the impact of 5-formyltetrahydrofolate on the activities of pralatrexate, as compared to methotrexate (MTX), in vitro. Methods: Cells were exposed to (6 S)5-formyltetrahydrofolate (5-formylTHF) for 24 h, before or after a 6-h exposure to antifolates following which the...

    Goat milk is a complete food but its low level of folic acid diminishes its nutritional efficacy. In this study, Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus, Lb. delbrueckii subsp. lactis and Lb. helveticus strains were selected for folate production in goat milk to...

    If folate takes some appendixes to its pterydine ring like H+, CH3, CNH2, CHO, CH-and CH2-, it will separate into subgroups as tetrahydrofolate (THF), dihydrofolate, 5- methyl THF, folinic acid, 10-formyl THF, 5,10-methylene THF. However, folate can also be grouped according to number of bound...
