Additional Information
RTECS: LP5425000
To the best of our knowledge, the chemical, physical, and toxicological properties have not been thoroughly investigated.
Overdosage symptoms due to this vitamin have not been observed in man. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Toxicity
A water soluble vitamin required in the diet of mammals. Sulfonamide drugs are selectively toxic to bacteria because they inhibit the incorporation of p-aminobenzoic acid into folic acid, a biosynthetic process in bacteria. Folic acid deficiency adversely affects prenatal development in humans. Dietary supplementation with folic acid dramatically reduces the incidence of neural tube defects in humans. Folic acid deficiency may also contribute to the causes of megaloblastic macrocytic anemia and a consequence of this is that this disease can be induced, as a side effect, when methotrexate, a folic acid antagonist, is used in cancer chemotherapy
