MTHFS produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 223 amino acids (1-203a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 25.4 kDa. MTHFS is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
MTHFS is a cytosolic protein which takes part in the formate metabolic process. MTHFS along with a magnesium cofactor catalyzes the ATP-dependent reaction which reduces 5-formyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) to 5,10-methenyltetrahydrofolate(MTHF). MTHF is the substrate used by MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) to generate 5-MTHF. In addition, MTHF is a coenzyme used in thymidine biosynthesis by thymidylate synthase (FAD).
