Mechanism of Action

The mechanism of action of 5-MTHF is through its role as a methyl donor in a range of metabolic and nervous system biochemical processes, as well as being indirectly necessary for DNA synthesis.

Serine reacts with tetrahydrofolate, forming 5, 10-methylenetetrahydrofolate, the folate derivative involved in DNA synthesis. The enzyme 5-MTHFR converts 5, 10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to 5-MTHF, which donates its methyl group to cobalamin (vitamin B12), forming methylcobalamin.

The enzyme methionine synthase catalyzes the donation of methylcobalamin’s methyl group to the amino acid metabolite homocysteine, converting it to the amino acid methionine.

Methionine subsequently is converted to S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), a methyl donor involved in numerous biochemical processes.
