Recombinant Human 5-Formyltetrahydrofolate Cyclo-Ligase/MTHFS (C-6His)
Recombinant Human Methenyl-THF synthetase is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Met1-Ala203 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #CH64
Background5-formyltetrahydrofolate cyclo-ligase (MTHFS) belongs to the 5-formyltetrahydrofolate cyclo-ligase family. It is an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of 5-formyltetrahydrofolate to 5,10-methenyltetrahydrofolate, contributes to tetrahydrofolate metabolism. MTHFS helps regulate carbon flow through the folate-dependent one-carbon metabolic network that supplies carbon for the biosynthesis of purines, thymidine and amino acids. An increased activity of the encoded protein can result in an increased folate turnover rate and folate depletion.
