Chemical Information
FooDB Name5-Methyltetrahydropteroyltri-L-glutamate
Description5-Methyltetrahydropteroyltri-L-glutamate is formed under reaction between carbonyl group of 5-Methyltetrahydropteroate and amine group on one end of three replicates of glutamate. It is involved in several pathways such as tetrahydrofolate biosynthesis II, methionine biosynthesis I,II,III as a product of enzymatic reduction; while in pathways folate polyglutamylation I and carbon tetrachloride degradation II as a product of enzymatic oxidation. [HMDB]. 5-Methyltetrahydropteroyltri-L-glutamate is found in many foods, some of which are common cabbage, chives, lime, and garden rhubarb.
