Folic Acid BSA Conjugate Solution
Catalog #: P2010026 (0.5 mg)
Concentrated solution of Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) conjugated to Folic Acid (also known as Folate when in its anionic form). A carbon spacer arm of 10.0 Å links BSA to the Folic Acid moiety. Each BSA molecule contains several Folic Acid units. Dilutions of the provided conjugate can be made in 1X Phosphate Buffer Saline, pH 7.4.

About Folic Acid
Folic acid (also known as folate when present in its anionic form) is water-soluble B vitamin. Folic acid plays important physiological roles and its active form, Tetrahydrofolic Acid (THFA), is obtained by an enzymatic reaction in which folic acid is reduced into THFA by the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase. THFA is important in many biosynthetic reactions that include the transfer of single-carbon containing groups and the biosynthesis of purines, thymidine, and certain amino acids.
