OTHER VITAMINS / MINERALS - Ascorbates assist with folate and iron metabolism. 55,56 Furthermore, these nutrients contain mineral salts – magnesium and zinc – which are also known to play a role in the folate cycle. Defective 6-pyruvoyl tetrahydropterin synthase is known to impair tetrahydrobiopterin synthesis. The enzyme 6-pyruvoyl tetrahydropterin synthase consists of four identical subunits which convert dihydroneopterin triphosphate to 6-pyruvoyl-tetrahydropterin in the presence of magnesium.
