10-Formyltetrahydrofolate (10-CHO-THF) is form of tetrahydrofolate that acts as a donor of formyl groups in anabolism. In these reactions 10-CHO-THF is used as a substrate in formyltransferase reactions. This is important in purine biosynthesis, where 10-CHO-THF is a substrate for phosphoribosylaminoimidazolecarboxamide formyltransferase, as well as in the formylation of the methionyl initiator tRNA (fMet-tRNA), when 10-CHO-THF is a substrate for methionyl-tRNA formyltransferase.
- 5,10-methenyltetrahydrofolate + H2O 10-formyltetrahydrofolate
- ATP + formate + tetrahydrofolate ADP + phosphate + 10-formyltetrahydrofolate
