DOSFOLAT® XS - one working mechanism:

C-1-groups transferable by and transformable into one another on tetrahydrofolic acid. Methyl, methylene and methenyl are transformed into one another by oxidation and reduction respectively, methenyl and formimino by the addition or removal of ammonia.

Tetrahydrofolic acid is more than simply a coenzyme. It is truly a small chemical factory. Thus methyl residues, formaldehyde (in the form of methylene), formic acid (in the form of methenyl) and iminoformic acid (iminoformyl groups) with the help of this coenzyme can be cut off from present molecules to be broken down and can be transferred to increasing nuclei of molecules to be synthesized. Additionally these 4 molecular building blocks can be transformed into one another, if bound to the tetrahydrofolic acid . Therefore it, directly or indirectly, is also involved in the pollutant degradation.DOSFOLAT®XS acts against the chemical stress upon microbial metabolism
