Term Information [More information on folic acid transport]

Accession
GO:0015884
Name
folic acid transport
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
folate transport, vitamin B9 transport, vitamin M transport
Definition
The directed movement of folic acid (pteroylglutamic acid) into, out of or within a cell, or between cells, by means of some agent such as a transporter or pore. Folic acid is widely distributed as a member of the vitamin B complex and is essential for the synthesis of purine and pyrimidines. Source: GOC:ai
