In concert with vitamin B12, 5-MTHF functions as a methyl-group donor involved in the conversion of the amino acid homocysteine to methionine. Methyl-group donation is vital to many biochemical processes, including the synthesis of serotonin, melatonin, and DNA. 5-MTHF is also involved in production of the catecholamine neurotransmitters (dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine) and the production of beneficial nitric oxide in vascular endothelial cells, which promotes healthy blood vessel function.
