Metabolite Identification
Common Name Tetrahydrofolyl-[Glu](n)
Description Tetrahydrofolyl-[Glu](n) is involved in the folate biosynthesis pathway. Tetrahydrofolyl-[Glu](n) can be reversibly converted into Tetrahydrofolyl-[Glu](2) by folylpolyglutamate synthase [EC:]. Tetrahydrofolyl-[Glu](n) can be irreversibly converted into tetrahydrofolate by gamma-glutamyl hydrolase [EC:]. Sample structure image shows the case when n=3.
