Term Detail
GO term:folic acid transport
Synonym: folate transport
Synonym: vitamin B9 transport
Synonym: vitamin M transport
GO id:GO:0015884
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.
