Chemistry and Biology of Pteridines and Folates

The pteridines in their multitude of forms fulfill many roles in nature ranging from pigments to cofactors for numerous redox and one-carbon transfer reactions. This extraordinary diversity of function is unified by the unique chemistry of the pteridine heterocycle. The International Symposium on the Chemistry and Biology of Pteridines and Folates is a forum for presenting recent and exciting advances in this expanding field. In of ideas results that has often stimulated bringing together various disciplines, a synergy fresh approaches to major problems. The Tenth International Symposium held at Orange Beach, Alabama, March 21-23, 1993, proved no exception by providing new insights into folate enzymology, tetrahydrobiopterin and molybdopterin biosynthesis and function, enzyme synthesis and regulation, along with novel synthetic strategies for producing compounds that will expedite further study. The many outstanding scientific contributions found in the following chapters, which represent the work presented at the Symposium, are a reflection of the significant advances made since the Ninth International Symposium held in Zurich in 1989. Since the 7th International Symposium in St. Andrews, Scotland, a tradition has evolved of honoring scientists who have made outstanding contributions to pteridine research with a Gowland Hopkins medal and lectureship. Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins initiated the first investigation of what later proved to be pteridines in his studies of the yellow and white colors of butterflies.

Chemistry and Biology of Pteridines and Folates

Pteridine and folate research has long been recognized as important for many biological processes, such as amino acid metabolism, nucleic acid synthesis, neurotransmitter synthesis, cancer, cardiovascular function, and growth and development of essentially all living organisms. Defects in synthesis, metabolism and/or nutritional availability of these compounds have been implicated as major causes of common disease processes, e.g. cancer, inflammatory disorders, cardiovascular disorders, neurological diseases, autoimmune processes, and birth defects. Since pteridine and folate biology uses concepts and experimental techniques drawn from all of these disciplines, the breadth of this volume is its great strength, bringing together researchers from a wide variety of fields including biochemistry, chemistry, physics, biophysics, genetics, microbiology, cell and molecular biology, virology, immunology, cancer, neurobiology and medicine. This volume should be a valuable and unique reference work for scientists with interests in these areas as well as those seeking up to date information.
